Rotating the Screen on the Toshiba m205 TabletPC
A fellow emailed me yesterday saying:
Anyway I have an M205 that I have practically worn out the keyboard on (an indication of the relative non-use of the stylus) and for this reason: Toshiba, for some reason or lack of reason, I have no way to fathom either, forgot to put a 180-degree landscape view in. Now first off, I would be happy to be informed – no you push this and voila! (But that isn’t going to happen – is it?)
so I said:
No, you push this and voila!
The hardware orientation button has to be configured to allow different views. Go to “Rotation Utility” under Start Menu|All Programs|TOSHIBA|TabletPC|Rotation Utility. There you can set the orientation.
Additionally, the m200 and m205 also support gyroscopic orientation. If you turn the Tablet to the orientation you want, then press and hold the hardware rotate button, you’re set. You don’t need or want a screen rotation util, the TabletPC (OS) and Toshiba support all 4 orientations. I promise.
And he was happy.
