Windows 10 has been designed to work on all types of device ranging from desktops and laptops to tablets and mobile phones


Depending on what type of device you are using Windows has two modes:-


Desktop mode - where you can access the desktop and start menu and all apps appear windowed (see first image below)


Tablet mode - where it shows a full screen start menu without a desktop, all apps appear full screen, and all menus and icons appear larger and optimized for touch (see second image below)


One of the new features of Windows 10 is called Continuum - this is where the device automatically switches mode depending on how you are using it - for example if you have one of the new 2-in-1 (convertible) devices with a keyboard that can be removed or turned round, then as you remove (or connect) the keyboard Windows will automatically switch between desktop mode and tablet mode for you



To enable tablet mode manually on a compatible device:-


1)Click the notifications_icon_win10 icon in the bottom right corner - or swipe in from the right of the screen if using a tablet


2)Click/Tap the Tablet Mode button as shown below
