    Screen won't orient to landscape at desktop without opening keyboard

    The screen orients correctly in browser but when I am at the desktop it is always vertical and only will go horizontal when i pull down keyboard. How do I fix this? It is really annoying :-(

    Edit: My phone is brand new so maybe its the default setting or something?

    thats how it is. the only way to get the homescreen to go landscape is to open the keyboard. nothing you can do about it. sorry

    I feel like people started noticing this at the same time, so it's entirely possible. I'm really quite sure that the homescreen rotated.

    I've had the Droid since the day it was released and have read about 20 different threads asking this same exact question. It does not rotate without opening the keyboard and this is what Motorola and Google intended.

    Screen never rotated to landscape while on home screen. JthankG hit the nail on the head, it was never Google/Motorola's intention to do this.

    You can have this function however, by using home replacement(s). Home++, PandaHome, GDE, DxTop.

    All of these apps will give added functionality to your home screens and allow them to rotate to landscape
