    My Dell venue 8 pro's screen orientation used to automatically orientated itself depending on how I held it. Now though the screen won't adjust, how can I fix this?

    Bring up the charms menu from right, at the bottom right you can find screen brightness, open that and you can toggle screen orientation lock from there

    Not sure why its not working, have you tried a restart? Also check for the latest chipset drivers and bios update from dell's support site.

    I had the same problem right after I got my Pro8. I had to disable the sensors device in the Device Manager and re-enable. That got everything working again.

    This has nothing to do with the screen orientation lock. This is to hide the key pressed when you enter a password or PIN to unlock the device.

    ))) idk that's how i solved my problem:))
    but if you restart your SP3 and and switch between that button it will change the option in the right slide menu to brightness or screen lock orientation...
