Windows 10: How do I set default screen orientation to landscape on 2-in-1?

    How do I set default screen orientation to landscape on 2-in-1?

    I have a RCA W101 V2 tablet that comes with a docking keyboard. If I undock, then redock, it always switches to portrait mode.

    I manually set the orientation to landscape when it is in docked mode, and it will stay like that until I undock the keyboard. Then autorotation kicks in, which always keeps the orientation correct.

    But once I reconnect the keyboard, autorotation is disabled and then it defaults to portrait - despite the keyboard connecting in landscape mode. I can change it back to landscape, but it reverts next time I redock. I suspect the display is natively portrait, as even the system UEFI menu is in portrait mode. According to the Intel settings, my "preferred" orientation is 270 degrees and not 0 degrees.

    How can I set the default orientation permanently, so it kicks in automatically when autorotate turns off? Thanks.

    I would really like a fixed driver or a regedit tweak that permanently fixes it, but barring that I'd be happy with setting some sort of trigger that resets the orientation as soon as I reconnect the keyboard.

    I have a "cheapy" Trio :) 10" with the removable keyboard and it does the same thing.
