I'd like to always have my Titan in landscape mode, and I'd like it to stay that way even when I open and close the keyboard. My old Apache did the same annoying thing - you can switch to landscape mode in the Settings > System > Screen, but as soon as you open and close the keyboard it switches right back to portrait.

Surely there is SOME way to make the phone stay in landscape, right?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

theres a exe file out there called landscaper that allows the phone to always switch to landscape mode. When you wake the phone up or slide the keyboard the screen will change back to portrait but only briefly (you can set the amount of time in the options menu if you set it to 0 its pretty quick that it goes back to landscape). You will have to either put it in the start up folder or manually start the program each time after a soft reset. I personally just settled on mapping a hard key to rotate the screen and find this easier and quicker. Google Landscaper exe and Im sure you'll find it, if not PM me and I can send it to you. (dont think I can attach it here)

sorry didn't know this one posted!

it goes back to portrait when you open and close the keyboard, plus it doesn't work after a soft reset--reverts back to portrait.

There's apps that let you change the orientation of the screen. Just set one to a hardware button. Sometimes you have to work with what you're given.

You get snooty replies because you ask questions a simple search could answer and you do it in inappropriate forums with a statement in the title instead of a question. Simple as that.

Obviously not a perfect solution, but much better than before. Thank you!
