Hi,

 

You found the method used in the PlayBook simulator.

 

All you need to do is click on the bottom right corner (in either orientation) and it should be able to change.  However, make sure you have orientation lock off otherwise it will not rotate the screen.

 

(Just a copy-paste of a search result, be sure to use search next time).

Even if I click the bottom right corner it doesn't rotate(rotation lock if off).

If your app is not capable of supporting landscape orientation, the simulator will not rotate.

As I said, it will only work if your app supports orientation changes. The homepage is a good example of an app that doesn't support landscape. As such it is not going to rotate.

Try in the browser, that one should (obviously) rotate.
