Windows Phone Emulator Orientation is not working

Another classic problem of Windows Phone emulator is that it does not respond as expected if we have the support for both the orientations (Portrait & Landscape) by mentioning


it still not changing in Emulator. What could be the reason, think?

It is because you have removed the On-Screen keyboard by pressing Ctrl+Page Up (I discussed this in my previous post), so you just need to get them back to the default mode by pressing ctrl+Page Down.

This behavior is not regular, if you are lucky your Emulator should work as is without this trick as well. This is what I found during my tryouts.
