Fix: Screen Rotation Doesn’t Work on Yoga 2 Pro in Windows 10
Windows 10 is a multi-platform operating system, which means that not only PC users got the upgrade, but a lot of Yoga ultrabooks, as well. Some users of Yoga 2 Pro ultrabook reported that automatic screen rotation doesn’t work for them after the upgrade to Windows 10. And in this article, I’m going to show you a few tricks to solve this issue.
This first thing you can try is the simplest one. Just switch your device to tablet mode, and restart it, after the restart, check if the auto rotation is working again. This will reset the auto rotation sensors, and hopefully, you’ll manage to activate it again. Also, I probably don’t have to mention to check your drivers, but if you didn’t, go to Device Manager and check if all drivers are updated. But if the auto rotation doesn’t work after the restart and if your drivers are updated, you can try one of the following solutions:
Solution 1 – Disable YMC service
Maybe disabling the YMC service will restore the functionality of auto rotation again. Here’s what you need to do to disable this service:
- Go to Search, type services.msc and open Services
- Find YMC service, right-click on it and go to Properties
- Click on Disable, and then to Enable, to reset it
- Reset your device and check if the rotation works now
Solution 2 – Manually enable auto rotation in registry
If disabling the YMC service didn’t solve the problem, you can try to enable your auto rotation manually, in the Registry Editor. Here’s exactly what you need to do:
- Go to Search, type regedit and open Registry Editor
- Go to the following path:
- Set the value of Enable DWORD to 1
- Close Registry Editor, restart your device and check if the auto rotation works now
