    I'm having an annoying issue with the keyboard stopping working when disconnect and reconnect- I've figured out how to fix this, but now my screen auto rotate doesn't work. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Screen rotation is tied to whether the keyboard is connected. The easiest way to fix it is to reboot the system. Otherwise, disconnect the keyboard, reconnect the keyboard, and then disconnect the keyboard (if you want to use it in portrait like a tablet).

    f the screen does not auto-rotate, the auto-rotation setting may be locked in one position. Hereís how to unlock it:

    Step 1: Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, or select Action center Notification icon in taskbar in the taskbar.
    Step 2: If Rotation lock is undimmed, auto-rotation is locked. Select Rotation lock to unlock auto-rotation11d238f7-0e84-44b4-a35e-652474a738a0.pngClick image for larger version.

    Try Settings/Notifications and Actions and there on the top you should have a Choose your quick actions with four icons. Make one Rotation lock and see if it comes back.

    Found this which has returned the icon to quick settings but it is grayed out and I can't "unlock" it. The following key was set to 0. I changed it to 1 and rebooted. The Quick Action button and its functionality returned.

    That seems to have fixed the issue- once i disconnect the keyboard, it rotates as it is suppose to. However, every time i disconnect the keyboard and reconnect, the keyboard doesn't work. hate that bug :(
