Tablet Mode Tips

·         When you’re in a program in tablet mode, swipe up from the bottom to reveal the taskbar.


·         In tablet mode, the entire desktop becomes the start menu.  Use file explorer to access desktop files.


·         Go to Settings – System – Tablet Mode to personalize


·         If you go back to desktop mode but do not see your desktop, you may need to switch back and forth between modes once or twice. Sometimes it gets “stuck” in tablet mode.
