Landscape home-screen

With my Z2 it is possible to get the home-screen in landscape when you tilt the phone, with my x performance it seems this is gone... WHY?

Re: Xperia Home Auto Rotate?

Hi all, in conjunction with the other posters I to have the no auto rotate option with the home screen. I have the latest version software installed, had to use repair function via the computer a couple of days ago and now there doesn't appear to be the option to auto rotate the home screen to landscape. Whilst this may not be a massive issue for the majority it is causing me a problem as I cannot use the pull down function in portrait mode due to slight damage to the screen at the top of the phone.
Does support actually read these posts? Also online assistance is no help either.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Xperia Home Auto Rotate?

We shouldn't need a third party app to do something an OLD MODEL WOULD DO JUST FINE.

Z5 Compact home screen

Hello,

 

My Z3 compact has Home version 55, which allow home screen rotation.

My Z5 compact has version 31 which does not.

 

How do I update my Home in my Z5 compact?

 

 

Thanks.

Re: Z5 Compact home screen

Hello,

 

In case this helps, this is how I enalbed auto-rotation on my (quite old) Z3 compact that is running the latest version (Build number 23.5.A.1.291):

 

1) Find some free space on you home screen(s). If there is none, temporarilly remove an icon so that yo make some space.

 

2) Tap and HOLD somewhere on you home screen, then lift your finger. The screen should screen to allow you to edit icons and a "Settings" icon should appear on the bottom right 

 

3) Tap on "Settings"

 

4) Under layout, make sure the slider next to "Auto-rotation" is in the ON position (slide it to the right if you need to).

 

Now press the home button and rotate your phone into landscape mode: the home screen should rotate whether the phone is docked or not.
