    IDK if it will help, but if an external display is connected or a type cover is attached (and in typing position), the surface is automatically locked in landscape. So, maybe try disconnecting either or both of those if connected. Probably won't help your situation, just thought I'd throw that out there.

    Same issue Dec 2015 - none of the online suggestions and recommendations have resolved this.

    Anyone else having this issue this year?

    I just started having this same issue this morning. I was looking for the icon in notifications as I went to use the Surface 3 in portrait mode for One Note notes and it would not go to portrait mode, and noticed the icon is not even there. I checked out the troubleshooting page on Microsoft and got to the last option of restoring my Surface, which I do not want to do.

    I had this issue just after win 10 upgrade and could fix it ...by pressing the power button and volume up until the typecover backlight blinks. But after some 2 weeks its back again, no screen rotation ... now i'm looking for a permanent solution, made recently an update but still on same state
