On older devices with a stylus sensor, tools such as G-Config could be used to add applications to the white list. However, the capacitive giant that is the HD2 lacks such a sensor and is therefore limited to manual registry changes.
Makeveral (the creator of G-Config) has stated heâ€™ll be updating it to support non-stylus-sensing devices, though itâ€™s unclear when.
Ye, i’ll update this app soon.. but can’t say when cos i’m a bit busy xD (hopefully this month..)
In the meantime, you can add custom applications to the list manuallyâ€¦ 🙂
Youâ€™ll need a tool such as Dot Freds Task Manager (available here).
Within DotFred Task Manager, youâ€™ll need to go to the â€œWindowsâ€ tab (Menu->Tab Options->Select Tab->Windows).
Now you get to find the correct window.
For File Explorer, the title text is â€œFile Explorerâ€ so it was simply a matter of scrolling through till I found it, though you can use the â€œFind Windowâ€ button to make it simpler. After the window text, there is a line of text not in quotation marks. This is the Window Class, and thatâ€™s what you need to know. You can collect as many or as few as you want of these to enable rotation in, but it makes sense to do them all in one goâ€¦
Now, you need to go to the â€œRegEditâ€ tab (or use your favourite registry editor) to navigate to
Next, create a new value (has to be REG_SZ) and call it whatever you like (always good to be something descriptive, but â€œcuckooâ€ will suffice) and then change its value to whatever the window class you found earlier was. Do this for as many programs as you want, and when your done you will have to power cycle the device to get the settings loaded.
Hopefully this has been helpful, and if thereâ€™s anything else you want to know how to do, let me know and Iâ€™ll see what I can doâ€¦ Also, would this be more useful as a video?
