Windows Paint is a concise and easy-to-use image editing tool you can use to draw pictures, insert photos and add text boxes. Rotating text in text boxes adds a colorful feature to the text and can sometimes be just what you need to add emphasis to your project. You can add a text box using the "Text" tool and select the target text in order to apply the "Rotate" function.
Click the "Text" tool from the Tools group in the Home tab to add text to the canvas.

Click and drag the mouse to draw a text box on the canvas.
Type the text you want to appear in the text box. You can set the color, font and size of the text in the Text Tools section.
Click "Select" from the Image group in the Home tab.
Click and drag the mouse over the text you want to rotate. You don't have to select all of the text; you can rotate selected text while leaving the un-selected text in the original orientation.
