Landscape Mode Always On

Is this possible? Whenever I surf the web, I like to use the hard keys instead of the on-screen keyboard. Almost always I surf in landscape. Is there something I can do to keep landscape always on, or a reg. edit? What's annoying for me is this: Browsing the web in landscape, slide open the hard keyboard to put text in, then close it, and then it goes into portrait. I don't know, I find this annoying. Is there any ideas?

Re: Landscape Mode Always On

No, its hardware related. This issue has been discussed many time in apache and the titan forums as well as other web sites......there's an exe file out there called landscaper that allows the phone to always switch to landscape mode. When you wake the phone up or slide the keyboard the screen will change back to portrait but only briefly (you can set the amount of time in the options menu, if you set it to 0 its pretty quick that it goes back to landscape). You will have to either put it in the start up folder or manually start the program each time after a soft reset. I personally just decided on mapping a hard key to rotate the screen and find this easier and quicker.

Any way to get mogul to STAY in landscape mode.

Re: Landscape Mode Always On

I've looked all over and haven't found anyone who wants to or knows how to keep it in portrait permanently. I like using the hard keyboard but often use the onscreen keyboard when in a browser to prevent the browser from going back and forth, (can take a while to re-render the page sometimes.) I saw what I thought was a regedit to prevent autorotation, but it looks like it only works for WM5 as I couldn't find the directory that was given. Any help?

Re: Landscape Mode Always On

I know it isn't the desired solution, but why not just map the landscape funtion to a hardware key? then you can just tap the button and problem solved.

Did you say hardware! Noooo! Ha, bummer. I thought there was an easy fix to the annoyance. I already have the hardware button over the voice command button. But hey, was just checkin!

Thanks Darkness231! I'll give it a try.
