Lenovo Yoga rotation lock button problem

2013-01-07, 23:24 PM

The rotation lock button on the side of my Yoga will bring up run (same as Win + R) instead of locking the display. I know I have read a few forums about this issue before but I haven't seen any forums discussing how to actually fix it. Does anyone have any ideas?
