Screen rotation option disabled in Intel HD graphics 520 on T460s -trouble collaging

I have a brand new T460s to replace an X250.

 

I hook this up through the pro dock to two Dell U2415 monitors at 1900x1200 each.  I use hdmi but display port does the same. My monitors are mounted at 90 degrees and 270 degrees to go "top to top" where the bezel is smallest. I then collage them into a single monitor using the intel driver. Basically, this creates a 1920 x 2400 workspace with the top of each monitor running vertically down the middle. I need the extra vertical space for worksheets and verticals give each screen a full word page at a great size. 

 

On my old X250 with the Intel HD graphics 5500, there is a row in the graphics display adapter to rotate each monitor separately to either 0. 90, 180 or 270. I set these for each monitor separately - one to 90, the other to 270 - then collage the two screens together. 

 

on the new T460s, there is no option to do this. The row to rotate each monitor is missing. This is true even if no monitors are attached. 

 

Researching intel's site they show the row but say manufacturers might turn it off. 

 

Using control panel to rotate doesn't work as it treats everything as one side by side or vertical - it cannot do head to head. If you collage it, it gives a bad result. 

 

Questions:

 

Can I get a version of the HD 520 driver for the T460s that allows rotating each monitor? What version number and where can I get it?

 

alternatively, can I install another driver on the T460s such as the HD graphics 5500 driver that has this feature turned on? Will the HD 5500 driver even work on a T460s?

 

or are there 3rd party drivers that can drive the T460s for more rotation configurations?

 

Thanks,  Topher

Hi TopherC,

Try to download and install the official driver from Intel webpage from this link, to see if the options could be enabled.

Refer to this link to bypass Intel Driver Validation.
