    Lost Access to Settings


    Used free upgrade to install Win 10 Pro 64bit to desktop computer. After successful installation, used Start button then Settings, to select Tablet Mode. After restart cannot access Settings from Start button or Action Center. How can I turn off Tablet Mode?

    Hello, ncredbaron. Welcome to Windows 10 Forums.

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3...dows-10-a.html

    WinKey/A or swipe from right for Action Center > Press Tablet Mode. That toggles it off and on.

    HippsieGypsie,

    Thanks for quick reply. Neither solution worked. Cannot access Action Center at all. Now believe my installation is corrupted.

    Happy to be of help, ncredbaron.

    Thanks for that, fracking4oil. :)

    I think both of you are correct.

    Good luck, ncredbaron. Please post how it goes?

    Thanks for link above. Was successful in repairing Win 10 Pro 64 bit. Took longer than I expected but I have a slow internet connection.
