Zoom: Rotate Your Camera (for Windows)

If your camera is displaying upside down or sideways in Zoom on your Windows PC, you can rotate the camera in your settings until it is oriented correctly.

  • Notes:
    • This feature is not available for Mac users. 
    • Mobile settings vary, but typically the camera rotates automatically on most smartphone/tablet devices. If your screen does not rotate, check your screen settings.

To address mirror effect and additional video settings, go to Changing Settings in the Desktop Client or Mobile App.

You will need the Zoom desktop application installed in order to adjust your camera.
