Tablet mode makes Windows 10 more touch-friendly when using your device as a tablet. Select action center on the taskbar (next to the date and time), and then select Tablet mode to turn it on or off. Use your PC like a tablet

Tablet mode is a feature that switches your device experience from tablet mode to desktop mode and back. The primary way for a user to enter and exit "tablet mode” is manually through the Action Center, by clicking the icon in the lower right on the taskbar.

To turn on tablet mode, select action center on the taskbar, then select Tablet mode. Note: To find out if your device can automatically turn on tablet mode, search for your device on the manufacturer's website. Support for this feature depends on the hardware, the driver that's installed, and how the device was set up by the manufacturer.

In version 20h2 of Windows 10, whether it is an oversight or deliberate, Microsoft removed the Tablet Mode button from the Action Canter. Open the Settings App (gear icon on your Start Menu) Go to System - Tablet, then click 'Change Additional Tablet Settings' and you will find the toggle to turn on/off Tablet Mode.
