    We want the first option.
    It says, "Auto-rotate screen". This setting is currently activated. It means that if we turn our HTC One M8, then the screen is going to rotate too. That way, we can always see what we are doing. If we want to switch from landscape or portrait, the screen will always be in the right position to read it.

    Turn this option off by pressing on the box, located to the right of the words.
    We can turn this off if we don't want it to auto-rotate. That way, it would stay in the same position all of the time. Press down on the box. Now, it is empty.
