Windows offers a shortcut to switch between portrait and landscape mode. This works on most versions of Windows, though apparently not for Bob’s. Press the Ctrl and Alt buttons along with a left or right arrow to flip the screen.
Going through the Windows settings route, you’ll do as Bob did and right-click anywhere on the Windows screen. In the drop-down menu, pick “Display settings” and you’ll land on a page to adjust your screen. Find the “Orientation” box and select landscape or portrait. Here are Microsoft’s official instructions: dpo.st/winscreen

How do I sort photos by portrait or landscape?
Sort of. In explorer open the view tab on the file menu. In the ribbon, select "Details" under layout. Now in the main area of explorer right click on the column headers where you see Name, Date, Type, etc and add the column called "Dimension". If Dimension doesn't appear in the list of available columns, then click "more items".
