Rotation of the menu screen

Hello everyone!!

I´ve been looking for information about my problem and nobody´s talking about it.

What about the rotation on the home screen? Since i´ve updated to marshmallow this function is not available.

It was very useful to me when i was in my car.

Any info about it???

Thanks !!!

Re: Rotation of the menu screen

Hi @spoonmanç,


Welcome to the community.


Home screen rotation is not available in the Marshmallow update by default. You can still do it with the help of third party apps or launchers.

Home page does not rotate horizontally anymore.

After Marshmallow update the very interesting and productive feature, specially when mirroring screen, is not working anymore.
