How to change orientation for AVD?

    Sorry to bug the forum. What I want to do is to change the default Portrait to Landscape.

    I have one AVD setup using fwvga device, I went to Setings -> Display, only saw Auto-rotate screen checked (by default), unchecked, it does not help.

    I'm testing out a web app. It works but if the orientation changes to Landscape it would work better.

    Well, I may try another AVD then...

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok, guys, I just tried, ctrl + f12, indeed, it changed the orientation for the AVD (fwvga device in this case), BUT, the function orientation does not change, that is, for instance, google search is still in Portrait mode, same goes for menu, apps etc. Is it a bug in ADT or am I supposed to so something else after pressin ctrl + f12 ?

    @justme2013 - ADT is unfortunately not that awesome. Do you have the latest version? I generally hold down CTRL and ALT and mash the upper F9 to F12 keys until it flips. And it usually works (including search).

    Thanks for the advice, by doing that I also made my own laptop change its orientation, but in the end, some screen is now in Landscape, I hope ADT is constantly and dynamically improving...
