  1. Windows 10 Start Menu not remembering its size after switching from landscape to portrait


    I experienced a very peculiar problem today with Windows 10 on my Surface Pro 6. I rotated my device from the usual landscape mode to portrait to take some notes in OneNote using my stylus. Since I had not used my device in portrait mode in a little while, I had resized my Start Menu to something larger than could fit in portrait mode, so Windows automatically shrunk it from two columns of tiles to a single column, which is understandable.


    However, when I returned to landscape mode, the tiles on the left were no longer showing, and only the alphabetical list of apps was visible. Of course, I could position my mouse on the edge of the menu and resize it to reveal all the tiles, but as soon as I open the menu again, it is back to the single alphabetical list of apps and I need to resize it again to reveal the various tiles I organized meaningfully.


    I tried rebooting several times to no avail; the Start Menu is now a single alphabetical list of apps that could be "momentarily" resized to reveal tiles but that does not hold its size.


    I am clueless at what to try next... Any idea?


    PS - It is not the first time I experience some problems with the Windows 10 Start Menu... A few months ago, in landscape mode it worked perfectly, but as soon as I rotated my device in portrait mode, it would not show and I would need to rotate my device back to landscape to mode to start an app, then go back to portrait to continue whatever I was doing. Why is it so complicated for Microsoft engineers to get this menu to work all the time properly???

    Switching from portrait to landscape on the N97

    OK, you're probably gonna think I'm dumb:smileytongue: but I've read all the manuals and I still can't figure out how to switch the screen from portrait to landscape without opening the keyboard.



    Many thanks in advance:smileyhappy:
