    Problem not solved as if I do the newest windows update it will all go wrong again. I do like to keep windows up to date but a tablet with no auto rotate is not a lot of good. Thanks for you help but it does mean that can’t run the latest version of Wondows10

    This fixed it for me.

    I previously posted this at below (last post of todays date):

    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 folder, called "Registry_Hacks", and copied the files to that location,
    you may choose another location if you cannot access the Windows folder.

    EDIT: Some users had an issue where they could not run a .reg registry editing command because the file was actually called eg "something.reg.txt".
