Hello,

Every time I click on the bottom task bar my whole screen flips upside down. I know how to flip it back but it is rather annoying. I think little fingers have been playing on mummy's laptop!

Any ideas of how to fix it, all fixes I am finding are for Windows 7 some years ago.

So frustrating. It is taking me so much longer to do anything!!! It is an Acer Aspire R7.

Hi

Try this:



There are 3 possible ways to enable/disable the auto-rotate function in Windows 8.

For tablets with a keyboard connected, press the key-combination Windows ( key + O to toggle the auto-rotate function.

Right-click the desktop and select 'Screen Resolution'. Check or uncheck the 'Allow screen to auto-rotate' box below the resolution settings.

Press the Windows key + C, or swipe in from the right edge of the screen to open your Charms. Tap 'Settings' and tap 'Screen' in the bottom of the bar. Tap the little square icon above the brightness-slider to enable/disable auto-rotate.
