With the recent arrival of my Prime, I'm new to Android. I've been trying to figure out how to do this, but so far, no luck. How do you lock the screen in portrait mode? Often times (particularly when I'm laying in bed), I want to do this because holding it in landscape is awkward. I read something about holding down on the search button to lock orientation, but that doesn't seem to work on the Prime. I found some apps that turn the screen-rotation on/off, but those only lock into landscape (or not)...no option to lock in portrait. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks in advance.
While we're at it, does anyone know how to search the contents only on my Prime? Every time I try to search, it forces me to use a browser, which I definitely don't want. Is there a way to just search my device only?
