    Hello all,

    Some games are not rotating in landscape mode when the dock port would represent up. Is there any way to fix this?

    Thanks in advance
    Vince

    Some programs are specifically written to be used in landscape or portrait mode, hence they will not rotate.

    Yeah, pentool is right. Whether the screen rotates depends on the app and not the tablet. You may also get some apps (fyi) that appear as a tiny portion of the screen. This is because they were designed for phones and not tablets.
