Windows 10: Orientation resets to portrait on logout or reboot

    Orientation resets to portrait on logout or reboot

    I have my tablet set to portrait orientation, but if I log out or reboot it reverts to portrait, even if rotation lock is on. I assume this is because it's an 8" tablet which MS decided are meant to be used in portrait but surely if rotation lock is on then it should respect that setting?

    Annoyingly, this one still exists in the current build.

    I hope I'm not thread hijacking, because the OP's title is EXACTLY the problem I'm having and can't find anything about a solution. ASUS R554LA Notebook. After Win10 upgrade and driver updates, even folding back the screen to use as a tablet reverts orientation to portrait. Anyone? Thanks in advance.

    Been having this problem.. Came up with a workaround.

    First.. The problem only happened on a 7" screen.. Have 2 tablets, same model, but one has a 7" screen, the other a 10".. The 10" worked perfectly.. The 7" had this problem.

    Now, 2 different processes here.. First person just went into Device Manager, under "Sensors", disabled the "HID Sensor Collection V2", scanned for hardware changes, and it worked fine.

    I had a bit rockier road with it.. I had to go into Device Manager, disable the "HID Sensor Collection V2", then re-enable it, the disable it AGAIN.. Then reboot.. And it has stuck on landscape ever since, through multiple logouts.

    Your mileage may vary.. But.. It seems to be working.
