    Suddenly Opening in Metro Interface

    The patient is an IBM Thinkpad laptop running the latest build (10130) as part of a dual boot 7 / 10 setup. It has been running 10 without incident for months.

    All of a sudden, my main account opens in a metro style desktop. Applications open full screen and cannot be restored smaller. I can't fiddle with the taskbar because there isn't one in this style.

    I created a second account on the machine and it behaves normally.

    I've looked around the various settings in gpedit and haven't stumbled upon anything relevant.

    Can anyone hypothesize what has happened and whether it's possible to get the expected traditional desktop back?

    You enabled tablet mode. And also somehow hid the taskbar. Taskbar is usually there in Tablet mode.

    Wow - much appreciated. Just knowing what it was called let me undo the remarkably-obnoxious mode. The weird thing is that it spontaneously happened while I was simply sitting back watching the live video feed of the U.S. Open. I wasn't even touching the keyboard.
