Dear Computer Lady,
How do I stop the screen from rotating on my iPad air?
Locking the screen on your iPad Air is a little bit different than it was on earlier versions of the iPad. Here is how you do it.
1. Start by holding your ipad in the direction you want it to stay.
2. Click the home button.
3. Slide your finger up from the bottom of the screen to display a hidden menu.
4. Tap the screen lock button to turn it on.
5. Slide your finger down to hide the menu once again.
Repeat the steps to unlock.
