Whenever I close an application in landscape mode and return to the home screen, my screen rotates from landscape to portrait. I have my home screen locked to portrait, but the animation is always shown (going from landscape to portrait). Is there anyway to get rid of it? It's utterly annoying..
Try going into your settimgs menu> then tap "Display"> next you'll want to tap "homescreen"> then switch "rotate to landscape mode" is toggled off. That should also help the issue.
