    Well at last by going to "start fullscreen" I finally got rid of the problem and I think other guys (and galls) will find that interesting as an answer to their problem
    Thank you

    Today I updated to 14901 (pre-release) and cannot turn off tablet mode...
    Settings are unusable (they disappear after trying to open submenu - however Updates Settings are OK...) and tile or regedit tweak doesn't change anything.

    Any other way? Should it work? I still can restore previous build.

    Hello ch3mm3y,

    Since this is on an 8" tablet, it may not support a desktop mode.

    I was using it since I got it in December, so if Microsoft doesn't change support for lower display sizes it should still work.
    But it seems nothing is working so I try to go back at update again.

    EDIT: It seems that I cannot restore it, as there is no option for it in Settings->Updates->Restore.
    And setup.exe from $WINDOWS-BT folder doesn't work (missing boot.wim file).

    EDIT2: Will try installing previous version using pendrive, coz there is no 14901 ISO on Microsoft site.

    Do you have all drivers installed for the tablet from its manufacturer?

    You might se if you may be able to use a Windows 10 ISO file to repair install.

    It was update and everything was fine before. I update from Redstone 1 build to newest 14901 and sh*t happened.

    Will use ISO with 14393 (don't see 14901) to "update"/repair system and than try to update it to 14901 again.
    How do You think, will downgrading it will work? OR Windows won't allow something like that?

    Anyone has Home x32 update files of 14901? Mine doesn't want to work, and downgrading = clean install.
