Symptoms

If you switch the Tablet PC's screen orientation from landscape to portrait when you run a Microsoft PowerPoint slide show, the slide show may also change its orientation from landscape to portrait. The change in screen orientation causes the slides of the presentation to appear sideways on the screen with substantial black space on either side of the slide.

Resolution

Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

To resolve this problem, you must create a registry key.
