This is the portable edition of PDF Rotator, a straightforward program capable of rotating PDF documents in batch mode. It includes intuitive options for both rookies and advanced users.
As installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the program files in any location on the hard disk and run the EXE file directly.
The alternative is to save PDF Rotator Portable to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, to be able to run in on any machine without prior installers.
What's more, portable apps do not add new entries to the Windows registry, nor create new files on the HDD without the user's consent, leaving it clean after removal.
The GUI is based on a regular window with a comfortable structure. PDF files can be added to the list using either the file browser, tree view, or drag-and-drop method. The list shows each file's path.
So, you can change the page orientation to any direction, as well as process all pages or just a user-defined range. Apart from removing entries from the list, there are also options to enable sound notification on task completion, as well as to change the output directory (default is the original folder). There are no other options available here.
PDF Rotator Portable works great and finishes a task in no time. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, as the tool did not hang, crash or display error messages. CPU and RAM consumption is low.
To conclude, PDF Rotator Portable offers a simple solution to rotating multiple PDF documents at once, backed up by a user-friendly interface and intuitive options.
