Windows 7: Disabling Screen Rotation Hotkeys

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1

I don't know what to tell you, bastani, unabling and disabling works even in the same session on my system. Which driver version do you have installed?

Hello again!
Sorry for my late response.
Yes, it is also strange for me that it doesn't work. The driver version is which must be the latest one.
I attach the screen capture of the driver's about page for more info if required.

It's not the latest, try updating to the latest official driver (if you can, of course). Maybe just the process of uninstalling and reinstalling might solve the problem, and you can update to boot.

I'm a driver fanatic, so mine is even newer.

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ialm\Device0

Search for "Display1_EnableRotation" and put 00 00 00 00

The way you have to change it a little strange so it must look like this at the end :

0000 00 00 00 00

Then the rotation is definitly disabled.

Screen Orientation and Wallpaper Rotation (on Tablet PCs)
On Tablet PCs, screen orientation can be changed so that any side of the screen can become "the bottom" of the desktop. Unfortunately, the result is that a wallpaper intended for a 1200 x 800 desktop, is stretched to fill a 800 x 1200 desktop. See the effect in the attached images. Is there any...
