This question already has an answer here:
In windows I can change screen orientation by "Ctrl + Alt + Arrow" as Arrow can be up, left, down or right.

There doesn't seem to be a default keyboard shortcut for this, but you could easily define one yourself. The commands for rotating the screen are:
You should be able to define your own shortcuts in the "Keyboard" application (Shortcuts tab), as explained here: How can I rotate my display in the most easy way?. If this works for you, that's great! However, I wasn't able to make it work this way.
As an alternative, you may want to delete the functions that are assigned to the keyboard combinations originally (they should be in the "Windows" section of the previous tab). After that, install a small program called "xbindkeys" to assign these keys.
Create a configuration file:
and enter this inside the config file
Hope this works out for you. You can find more info on xbindkeys online!
