Starting from Windows 8, Microsoft had finally started to design their operating system software to fulfill the needs of the touchscreen devices and the tablet computers. And I think they have finally achieved perfection in the newest version – Windows 10. This new version of Windows includes a feature that lets you switch back and forth between the Desktop mode and the Tablet mode. This is a great way to make the most of your touchscreen computer as you would be able to use it both as a conventional computer using keyboard and mouse, and as a tablet computer through the touchscreen.
Here is how you can toggle the tablet mode in Windows 10:
- Click on the Start button on the Windows desktop and select Settings from the Start menu.
- In the Settings window that opens up, click on the System icon.
- Select the Tablet mode from the side menu and then flip the on-off switch to the ON state that reads “Make Windows more touch friendly when using your device as a tablet”.
- That’t it. Enjoy Windows 10 in the tablet mode.
Windows 10 can detect automatically whether you have installed it on a tablet computer or a desktop computer during the installation and switches to the tablet mode on its own. But even if you have installed it on a desktop or notebook computer with touchscreen, you can still enjoy using Windows 10 in the tablet mode through this simple tablet mode friendly feature of this new OS from Microsoft.
