The factory-stock 1940, which uses Windows Mobile 2003, doesn't offer landscape mode.

You can get a 3rd party program called Nyditot Virtual Display that will let you use the 1940 in landscape mode, but I've used it before, and although it works, the problems it creates are not worth it. Besides, that program's not free.

Adobe offers a pdf reader for free that let's you read pdf files in landscape mode.

Defaults in Pocket Word

Does anyone know anything at all about changing defaults (other than what the software provides for) in any programs on the iPAQ? If somebody knows something about ini (or other) files that might let me change these defaults, that would be most helpful. Thanks!
