X220T Windows 10 auto rotate

#1 Post by marlinspike » Tue Feb 28, 2017 9:07 am

Anybody get this working? I already tried installing tablet shortcut menu (did nothing, can install it but can't open it in Windows 10) and screen reading optimizer (this made the screen flip anytime I fold it back onto the keyboard, so it does rotate, but not based on the position of the computer like it did in Windows 7. I know this is possible because at first I installed Windows 10 as an upgrade instead of a clean install. This had a lot of problems, but the auto-rotate did work.

I got it. Install from Lenovo the Windows 7 software called Tablet Shotcut Menu. It won't run, but all is not lost. After it is installed go to

C:/program files (x86)/Thinkpad/Tablet Shortcut/LENTBCTL.exe

then go to "settings" (it's grayed out, but you can click it), and there you can click a box to enable auto rotate.

If it doesn't work for you, other things I think need to be installed are Lenovo screen reading optimizer (also a windows 7 only driver) and the thinkpad airbag (Lenovo Active Protection System).
