    Ok, let's see what happens when I do that with W 8.1...
    Edit:
    So, I downloaded to desktop and it was on it's side.
    Rotated 90 and it was upright.
    Uploaded it here and you see the results.

    Keep in mind I have 3 PCs...W7, W8.1 and W10.
    Until recently my main use PC was the one with W7.
    It has always trucked right along with this procedure;
    Plug in phone via USB.
    Copy pic and paste to desktop.
    Horizontal (landscape) pics can be attached to a post as is.
    Vertical (portrait) are rotated 90 CW and attach to the post properly.
    W8 and 10 won't accept the rotated ones and attach as shown above

    Here is the identical process using W7 WPV.
    Transfer from Cell to desktop via copy and paste.
    Rotate 90.
    Upload.

    Can you do this in Safe Mode with Networking?
    See here to get there: Startup Options Menu - Boot to in Windows 8

    I'm wondering if something is interfering?

    W 8.1 Safe Mode.
    Hmmm, how do ya like that?
    Now what?
    Edit;
    Hang on while I go try W10.
    It's a really slow machine so will take a bit.

    Thanks for sticking with me here Rich and exercising great patients.
    Let's just forget the W10 machine for now as I can't get it to connect in Safe mode with networking.
    This, my 8 PC, is the one I use every day so let's see what we can find, if anything.

    I should point out here though, other people on the same forum have been having this issue and we all just thought it was a phone software issue and resolved ourselves to using landscape for anything we thought we might want to post. Until I discovered that 7 works and 8 doesn't.

    Ok, so, now what?
    There must be a box somewhere that needs to be checked or unchecked...maybe?

    Now we need to figure out what is causing the problem.

    You could start by disabling all startup programs in Task Manager, Startup tab (record what currently starts so you can re-enable them when done if you want).
    Reboot and see if rotate works. If yes, use the above to start enabling them a few at a time until the problem returns then you will know the cause.

    If rotate does not work doing the above, use the Services tab of msconfig (Windows Key + R, type msconfig and press Enter).
    Check the Hide all Microsoft services box, record all that currently start, then Disable All.
    Reboot and see if rotate works. If yes, use the above to start enabling them a few at a time until the problem returns then you will know the cause.

    Takes awhile but once you find the culprit, uninstall it and if necessary see if there is a newer version that doesn't cause the problem.

    Ok, thanks.
    Leave it with me.
    I'll play when I have a block of time and a clear head as I am not all that adept at tinkering.
    Hmm, just an after thought;
    Is there any merit in comparing the start ups of the two PCs first; W7 and W8?

    Wouldn't hurt. May be as simple as a single program you have on 8.1 and 10 that is not on 7.
