  1. Windows 10 Tablet Mode - enable last active application


    Hi all,


    We have tablets across our business that are running Windows 10, and will be used in Tablet Mode due to a project we have up and coming. We need the devices to run in tablet mode so that the onscreen keyboard appears and the apps run in full screen.


    The issue we have, and this is my reason behind posting which I am hopeful someone will have the answer to is that within D365 Retail, we have a button which triggers the web browser to open to complete some actions. When closing the web browser, as it's enabled in Tablet Mode, the device is then reopening the Start Menu full screen view, and we have to tap the app to reopen, even though it's already running in the background.


    Is there a setting / function that i'm missing which can enable Windows to reopen the last active window / app, rather than defaulting back to the Start Menu?


    Thanks,


    James

    :)

    • Click or tap on "System"
    • In the pane on the left of the screen scroll all the way to the bottom until you see "Tablet Mode"

    • Click the Start button.
    • Launch the Settings app.
    • Tap on System in the left pane of the screen; then, scroll down to the bottom until you see
      Tablet Mode.

    Windows 10 Tablet Mode - enable last active application

    switching from tablet mode to laptop mode

    Hi,

    The concern you have encountered may be due to a corrupted file or a misconfigured setting. Windows 10's Tablet Mode provides a more touch-friendly experience by making all applications run at full screen and giving you a Start screen instead of a Start Menu.
    If you have a 2-in-1 device, Windows 10 asks you if you want to enter tablet mode every time you convert your notebook into a slate. Kindly follow the steps below to sort out the concern:

    • Click Settings from the Start menu
    • Click System, then select Tablet Mode in the left panel. A tablet mode submenu appear
    • Toggle "Make Windows more touch-friendly . . ." to on to enable Tablet mode. Or off to go to desktop mode
    • Configure the "When this device automatically switches" menu to let Windows 10 to switch modes on your 2-in-1 prompt or not prompt you.

    Should you have further concerns, feel free to post.

    Regards.
