    Hey all,

    I upgraded my Linx 10inch tablet to Windows 10 and, although it's working great, it no longer detects and adjusts the screen rotation.

    I can work around at the moment by going into the display settings but this is definitely an annoyance. Is this a common issue or have I simply installed the wrong version?

    This also happened with my linx 7 tablet after upgrade. Maybe a driver issue?

    I have the same problem with my Toshiba Encore 2. I'm wondering if this is by design since there isn't an option to turn auto rotation on/off (at least that I can find).

    I have win10 running on a ASUS 8" tablet and a HP Stream7, both of them auto rotate works.. although after upgrading Win10 locks rotation...

    you should have an option to toggle rotation in action center... for me it is the option right next to tablet mode...

    Screen rotation is turned off by default. But even after flipping it on, I ran into issues of it not always working.

    Well, I still can't auto-rotate but the orientation settings suggests it should work.

    The orientation settings do show various options around screen rotation but nothing to turn it on or off.

    Guzzler, if you could post where the on/off toggle is located, it'd be greatly appreciated. Also, what version type is installed on your device.

    The version on my tablet is: Windows 10 Home Edition

    Interesting, I have a Stream 7 and rotation in not in the action center, I have to manually adjust it in display setup.

    Did you do anything special to get it to work?

    Stream 7 here with the same problem. No auto rotation/rotation lock option in any settings menu. Also the Windows capacitive button does not work either. I checked device manager and everything is working properly (no yellow caution signs), so maybe this is a Windows bug?

    Very annoying

    It's strange that you can search for rotation in Cortana and something does pop up, but when you try to access it just dumps you at the base setup screen.

    After a few hours of trying to fix this issue on Linx 7, I came across this article. Looks like rotation is a driver issue and the camera.

    Use the article to install rotation drivers. Worked for me.

    just bought Linx 1010 B installed with W10, same thing nearly sent it back until I realised the fault was with Windows 10... pain, but solvable using settings! No wonder people hesitate to update when every new windows bring its own crop of glitches.
