Use Tablet mode on your Samsung PC

Galaxy Book S in tablet mode

As the name suggests, Tablet mode lets you use your Windows 10 PC like a tablet, making your apps accessible with a simple tap. Even if you don’t have a removable or foldable keyboard, you can still use Tablet mode on any PC as long as you have Windows 10 as your operating system.

Turn on Tablet mode

Make your Windows 10 PC touch-friendly by turning on Tablet mode.

Click the Action Center icon on far right of the taskbar; it looks like a chat bubble. Then, click Tablet mode to turn it on.

If you don’t see Tablet mode in your Action Center, click Start, and then click Settings. Click System, click Notification & actions, and then click Edit your quick actions. From here, you can select your desired options, such as Tablet mode.
