after updating my Galaxy S9, my quick access menu no longer has the Screen Rotate icon.  Is has been replaced with a "medium power saver " icon.  The only way to lock my screen rotate now is to go to Settings-display-home screen-rotate to landscape mode slider.

First pull down the quick access menu and try swiping left. The icon could be on the second page. 

 

If you don't find it there, with the quick access menu open, click the 3 dot menu and select Button order. You can then swipe the top row of icons until you find it. Then you can drag and drop it down into the quick access menu and click Done.

Look for an icon in the quick access menu that says "Auto rotate" or  "Portrait". If it says "Portrait" clicking on it will change it to "Auto rotate". 

 

If you have it set to "Portrait" and you are in an app and rotate the phone, there will be tiny icon that appears in one corner which looks like a phone screen. Clicking on this will rotate the display. This little icon disappears after a few seconds.
