To eliminate the concern that Tablet Mode is causing any of the issue of seeing the Taskbar at the bottom of the screen:

  1. Connect a USB keyboard - if this is an Indi use a Micro USB to Standard USB adapter.
  2. Exit all programs and close all windows.
  3. In the bottom right corner, select the bubble to the right of the date and time.
  4. In the Action Center, select All Settings.
  5. Select System.
  6. On the left, select Tablet mode.
  7. Under When I sign in, select Use desktop mode.
  8. Close the window.
To extinguish the need to log into Windows when booting up:
  1. Right click the Start menu and select Run.
  2. In the Open text box, type “netplwiz” (without the quotes).
  3. Select OK.
  4. Clear the checkbox for Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
  5. Select Apply- this is a critical step and easy to miss.
  6. Enter and confirm the computer’s password twice as indicated.
  7. Select OK.
