Hi, the screen rotation on my orbit only rotates one way when set to landscape, i could choose which way it would rotate on my xda minis, ie: right to left or left to right, does anyone have any ideas how to do this on the orbit.

Many thanks.

Coincidentally I just recently used a combination of freeware to get this done. Once it’s set up it makes for a simple and convenient interface. First is a nice plugin called cLaunch for program icons on the today screen. Then there’s RotateSE270 for landscape with the buttons to the right. Last there’s RotateSE for 90 degree landscape with the buttons on the left.

Hi guys,

On my palm Tungsten T5 there is a button to rotate the screen and it works whatever is on the screen... does WM6 (on Orbit) do this out of the box without the above tweaks?

Cheers

Registry Reverting

Right-handed:

HKLM\System\GDI\Rotation\LandscapeMode = 1 (DWORD decimal)


Left-handed:

HKLM\System\GDI\Rotation\LandscapeMode = 4 (DWORD decimal)

When I make the registry edit above (change to "1") it is committed to the registry (I have double-checked) however once I click on the rotate screen icon in the HTC Home Today plugin it resets the value back to "4" every time.

I find a solution for my Htc touch....


Install in your device the program "BATTERY-STATUS" and enable its "Task manager"...


It is able to rotate the screen on the left part...
It works great.....




Bye.................
