    Surface Pro - Image Landscape/Portrait autoresize

    I've changed the Desktop background image which looks great when the Surface is in Landscape mode, however when I change to portrait mode the image is cropped.

    Is there someway I can resize the image automatically when changing mode's?

    Hello Aburrow, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Usually you can set your desktop background's "picture position" to either Fill or Fit for this. It also helps if the image is the same size as your screen resolution.

Windows 8 snap feature portrait mode?
So I've never seen how 2 apps snapped look when using a tablet in portrait mode. All I seem to see is landscape snapped apps. So can this even be done on a tablet. It looks rather useful, but not sure if it can be used in landscape and portrait?
