    Yeah, I know. Tablet Mode sucks though!
    To most yep. :)
    if the op wants the system to behave like windows 8 - tablet mode is it
    however … using windows 8 still required use of the windows key or the edge swipe

    Over on Eight Forums, @Brink created an application to boot straight to the Start Screen, called Apps 8.1.exe...

    but, I can't find the tutorial on it!
    (Maybe @Brink will stop by and shed some light on it!)

    Anyhoo, if we can find it, you could put a copy of the .exe in your Startup folder, it will work on Windows 10, but it will look like this upon bootup:
    @Edwin,

    Unfortunately, that won't work in Windows 10.

    Having tablet mode turned on will be an easy way to always have the Start screen show at startup.

    Actually, I think that application was intended to boot to the All Apps Screen in Windows 8/8.1. It sort of works in Windows 10, it just looks like my screenshot from Post #7!
