Default Changing the orientation of the touchpad (rotation)? - 03-25-2010, 01:54 AM

I often rotate my screen for some portrait-mode reading, but while holding the Mini on end its difficult to use the mouse since the screen orientation and touchpad orientation now differ.

Is there any way to change the orientation of the trackpad?

Thanks

not that I am aware of, everytime I accidently rotate mine, I have a hell of a time with the mouse, its like it does everything opposite....if there is a way I dont know it and never really read anything on it either..maybe we will both learn something here...

Use EEERotate (works on Dell also), it will change both your display and touchpad orientation

Thanks.....here is a link to download it

Eeerotate | Utilities Download | PCWorld

On the Minis just use ctrl+alt+arrow keys for rotating the screen then use this utility for the touchpad rotation
