I downloaded the registry file on page 2 of this thread and auto rotate works perfectly.

Thanks again.


Can I ask -did the reg. file just run ? Also, be aware that you will have to redo the job after any major Windows update -I've just had to go into reg editor for the second time on my wife's Linx as it had defaulted back to non-rotation!!

Just wish this fix would work for me - but I'm having to manually alter the value in regedit on a weekly basis to get auto rotation working.
Never have worked out why some Linx machines see the solution as a executable batch file whilst others see it as a text file only. :roll:

Can't tell you how pleased I am about this registry tool working.

I mainly use my 1020 as a mini laptop but having the rotate lock choice back on has given tablet mode back to me in a useful form.

Thank you many times over.

Simply download the file to your desktop or wherever you prefer then double click the reg file and then click yes twice then ok to modify the registry. It has been tested and its working perfectly.

EDIT: LINK DELETED (board would not let me submit the link, I'm a Newbie)

I've also found that simply deleting the registry key will work as well but I feel it is safer to rename it just in case.
Ps I know I said it would be later but I couldn't sleep


That was enough to sort me out, thanx very much (deleting the registry key).
Stopped auto rotate (greyed out, disabled) after recent windows update.

Cheers.

EDIT:

For those who cannot open with regedit, is probably because you have a *.reg.txt file but cannot see the
file extensions (real bad idea), so to switch viewable extensions back on:-
In Windows Explorer, click on "Options" drop down box, "Change Folder and Search options",
"View" tab, Untick "Hide Extensions for known file types". (They might be known to the system, but its
pretty important that you also know what the file is).
Click "Apply to all folders", and hit "OK".
Make sure that the file is a *.reg only file, then should run with Regedit.exe ok.
You can also right select "Merge" on the file (which will run regedit, or "Open with 'Registry Editor' ".

To run regedit itself:-
Bring up menu "Windows System", "Command Prompt", enter "Regedit".
Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\PriorityControl"
and to save the registry key, right click "PriorityControl" key and select "Export", and give it a
name eg "RESTORE_PriorityControl(Unfix Auto Rotate).reg" and click OK to save.
To create a reg file to delete the key, make a copy of your saved reg file, called eg
"DELETE_PriorityControl(Fix Auto Rotate).reg" and edit to eg (contents between the double quote, do not include the double quotes).
"
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\PriorityControl]
"

Above file will delete that registry key and the first .reg file will restore it as it originally was.
The above registry editing .reg file with the preceding '-' after the '[' character is a command to delete the key,
and it fixes my problem and survives reboot but dont know if next update will require another regedit.
I made a directory inside the Windows C:\ drive, called "Registry_Hacks", and copied the files to that location,
you may choose another location if you cannot access the C:\ drive.

Further to previous post,

Well I just updated to 1803 (a couple of days ago), and Auto rotate was broken again (grayed out), so looked
in my Windows C: drive in Registry_hacks folder (as prev noted), and ran the registry fix again to delete the problem key.
Did a rboot, and after a little bit of temporary weirdness (about 20->30 seconds) it is performing flawlessly again and a nice big chunky keyboard shows up (to enter password) and auto rotating fine even before logon.

Everything hunky dory again :)

I'm just jealous now ;)

I've tried changing the numbers in the registery but they won't 'stick', ie once rebooted, the numbers are the same as they were.

I'm currently downloading 1803 so, once that is done, maybe the registry will save my changes. Be good if it does.

Any other suggestions to get autorotation working again? I'd be very grateful for any help. Thaks

Sqirrel,

See post 3 before yours to create two .reg files, one to delete the registry key, and the other to restore it again.
No problem at all.
