Rotation Lock Button not working

Hello there.

Looks like the rotation lock button on my MSP just stopped working. It does nothing when I click it.

However, the button is giving input, as I detected input with SharpKeys and it detects a F14 press. Does anyone knows how to solve this? Thanks!

When I test with SharpKeys, the key being detected is Special: Left Windows (E0_5B), not F14.

This feature is managed by Windows. Please try this: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/win ... 14020857f9

If that doesn't work, you can try one of the solutions here: https://windowsreport.com/rotation-lock ... indows-10/

Thanks a lot. The problem wasn't the rotation lock greyed out, was just the button that wasn't turning it on and off. But actually it was you reading windows key on sharp keys that got me to the solution.

I had mapped left windows key to ctrl on sharp key, to keep my shortcuts similar to what I have in mac os. It's now solved. Thanks!
