In very short:

Orlando gieves his fate, that his older brother Oliver keeps him from his rightful position as a son of the deceased Sir Roland de Boys.
Duke Frederick had usurped his older brother Duke Senior, who is now living with his followers including the melancholy Jaques in the Forest of Arden, while his daughter Rosalind was allowed to stay with her cousind Celia.
Rosalind and Celia attend a wrestling of Orlando with his ruling brother's wrestler Charles and Rosalind is enchanted by Orlando. After a surprised win he is by his servant Adam warned and leaves him to the Forest of Arden.
Rosalind accused of betrayal by Frederick has to leave and is followed by her cousin Celia and jester Touchstone.

Rosalind, now dressed as a man and under the name of Ganymede, and Celia, under the name of Aliena, and Touchstone buy in the Forst of Arden the shed off the shepherd Corin.

Orlando meets the Duke and men and stays with them. He writes love poems for Rosalind and hangs them on trees throughout the Forest. When Ganymede meets him she offers cure for his love sickness. She askes him to image that she would be Rosalind and get relief from it as he cannot have her.
The shepherdess Phoebe falls in love with "Ganymede", who refuses her affection, while the shepherd Silvius is ignored.
Touchstone is favoured by the shepherdess Audrey over the country boy William.

Jaques the sad gentleman meets Orlando and adds observing comments throughout to play to various characters.

In the forest Orlando rescues Oliver from a lioness who seeks forgiveness from his brother. Oliver meets Celia as Aliena and they agree to marry.

Rosalindpromises to resolve the remaining problems:
Orlando should be united with his love Rosalind.
Phebe has to marry Silvius if she doesn´t want to marry "Ganymede".

After revealing her real identity to Orlando, her father, Phebe and all the others, Jacques, brother of Orlando and Oliver appears informing them that Duke Frederick has repented his deeds. He will return all his rights as a ruler to his brother Duke Senior. The four couple are married in the last scene und plan to return to the court. Melancholy Jaques will stay in the forest for a religious life.
In an epilog, Rosalind addresses men and women in audience to bear the play in mind.
