Screen Rotation Registry Settings (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


By default, the screen is oriented at a zero degree angle of rotation after downloading the run-time image to the CEPC. You can change the default angle of the screen by setting the appropriate registry key. However, any applications that subsequently run on the CEPC and rotate the screen will override the settings in the registry file.

In this procedure, you will set the registry key for screen rotation. If you do not want to change the default angle of the screen orientation, you can skip this procedure.

The following table shows the values you can use in the Angle registry subkey.

Value Description
