Touch Screen Tips: Windows 10 Tablet Mode

Tablet Mode in Microsoft’s Windows 10 turns any touch screen into a large tablet, ie keyboard and mouse not required. The touch screen replaces the mouse and an onscreen keyboard enables data input. Tablet mode is very straightforward to enable:

  • Open the Action Center (bottom right of the Windows screen)
  • Select Tablet Model (as shown)


When working in Tablet Mode applications will open full screen. Two applications can be used side by side by simply dragging a second application to the side, they will snap together and share the screen.
