    There must be a setting somewhere which limits the monitor from changing when you turn the iPad " sideways" or any other way. Somehow I unintentionally changed and froze mine. I want rotating back.

    There's a tiny slider switch next to the volume rocker.

    Have you checked the switch on the side over volume?

    Monitor Rotation

    My vol is reduced to about half on the slider. Below it are 5 buttons. I did not see anything suggesting monitor position.

    Please advise,
    Dan

    It's a physical switch on the iPad side near the physical volume switch. One position locks the auto-rotate and the opposite position frees it.

    Likewise. Maybe it's a fake? Like all those Rolexes on offer?

    I must be missing something. The slider above the volume burros is the mute toggle. I don't seem to have anything for the rotation. Please advise

    Screen orientation lock for OS 4.2

    Double tap your home button (the circular button with the square on it).

    You should see your multitasking tray.

    Slide the tray to the right.

    Tap the square icon with the circular arrow, positioned all the way to the left.

    The padlock that was pictured on the icon should now disappear. Your screen's orientation is now unlocked. Tap anywhere above multitasking tray to hide tray.

    Repeat above steps, and tap orientation lock to re-lock screen's orientation is horizontal or vertical position.

    I always use mine in landscape, is it best to just lock it in that mode?

    There is no right or wrong way. It is really just a matter of personal preference.

    Thanks 1991-C4...and you are now officially in big trouble with me...cause I love your avatar with your dog and you MADE me go to the apps store to find something about dogs. I was forced...forced I tell you...to buy SHOW DOGS...like watching Westminster on an annual basis is not enough...LOL :p

    Sumbuddy save me from myself...I've got to stay away from that app store. ;)

    Like this is my first time being in trouble! LOL!

    Not to totally hijack this thread, but the dog in the avatar is Kodiak and he died in November 2008 at almost 15. I use this picture to honor his memory. All of our dogs (6 at last count) have been rescued from shelters or one of Missouri's infamous puppy mills. We can't rescue them all, but its a start!

    Now back to your regularly scheduled thread....

    Kudos to you for doggy rescue. :)

    Thanks to xune for those great directions, as I just locked my screen in landscape.

    ...and thanks to dandy2 for asking the original question. :D

    I have my screen set up to always be in Landscape, but some apps seem like they only open in portrait...is that correct?
