    How to select device that triggers switch from tablet mode.?


    I have an Acer Iconia Tab W500 running Windows 10 Pro. Everything works perfectly except Windows does not exit tablet mode when the USB keyboard is attached. Is there a method for selecting a device that can switch the PC back into normal mode?

    Hello Jake, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You should be able to use either option in the tutorial below to toggle tablet mode on/off.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I am currently using Action Centre to switch between desktop and tablet mode. What I am looking to do is have Windows detect whether or not the keyboard unit is plugged in and switch between desktop and tablet mode accordingly. Is this possible?

    Setting step 4 in OPTION ONE to Don't ask me before switching should have it do that for you.

    Having Make Windows more touch-friendly when using your device as a tablet switched on leaves the device in tablet mode permanently whether or not the keyboard is connected regardless of the other options. I need it to detect the keyboard and switch back into desktop mode.
