What is Windows 10 Tablet Mode?
Windows 10 Tablet mode allows you to interact with your touchscreen-enabled PC as if it were a tablet, without the need of a keyboard or mouse. This optimizes your device by using large app icons, having fewer of these icons displaying, and by enabling the onscreen keyboard. In Tablet mode, you will also find that the Start menu is not in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen as you would expect in Desktop mode, but in the center of the screen.
You can enable Tablet mode in three ways. You can do it through the Settings option in the Start menu, through searching for "tablet mode" in the Taskbar's Search box, and in the Windows 10 Action Center. You can also disable Tablet mode through the Action Center and the Settings option.
When enabling Tablet mode, you can further choose when you want it enabled, such as at sign-in or when the device determines that it makes sense.
