    Windows 10

    My Windows 10 tablet got modified and I'm not sure how to fix


    My tablet used to go to the Desktop and when I pressed the Windows key, it would show all the pinned Icons. For some reason now, it only shows the icons and I don't seem to have a desktop. When I press the Windows key, nothing happens. How can I change this back to using the standard desktop with my icons vs the icon/app look?

    Looks like you are on Tablet Mode.
    I don't have a Win 10 Tablet, so I don't know if my simple steps will be applicable to you.

    At the right side of the taskbar ( assuming you still have the taskbar ), there is the Notification icon next to the Time > click it > click Tablet mode.

    That happens a lot. In my tech support job, I've had three people this week that were stuck in tablet mode - which I find out after I tell them to head for (w/e given icon) that they don't have.
