Top Surface tip: Find the hidden rotation lock


Paul Thurrott posted this useful tip on his WinSupersite.

The Surface tablet lacks a rotation lock button, and the location of the switch is not that obvious.

To lock the rotation of the screen, open the Charms > Settings > Screen and find the rotation lock switch on top of the brightness slider.

A bit of an odd place to find it – hopefully Microsoft will make it more obvious in a future update.
