Can PE Orientation Corrections Be Saved to the Original Scanned Photo?

I have some old photos from the 1970s and 1980s that were taken before digital cameras were invented.  I scanned them into a computer in 2008-2009 and corrected their orientation at that time in Windows.

 

When I uploaded them to my new computer which uses Windows 11, the orientation was wrong again.  It seems I can fix this using PE 2022, but is there any way I can correct the scanned photo file either through PE or Windows, so that the orientation remains fixed?  I would like a "clean" jpeg file that will keep any changes made so that the photos will be the same, whether viewed in Windows or PE.

 

I hope this question makes sense.  I have little knowledge of the more intricate workings of either Windows or PE.

 

Thanks so much for any and all help!

They will only display correctly if opened in the Editor.  I also did a quick test with changing the orientation in Windows Photos App and the same results occurred.

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply.  I made the orientation changes in Editor, as you suggested, and it worked fine.  It can be so hard to come up with just the right search term to find answers to PE questions, which is why this forum and your kind response are so appreciated!
