Hello all,
I know a recent Windows update just came out (October 2018) and some big changes have been made. However, I'm uncertain that this is one of them. One of my friends approached me the other day about updating their Windows machine. The update, taking place in September, took a near 24 hours and still wasn't complete. I wasn't there to tell them not to shut down the machine, but they did. I believe this may affect the current condition. I'm willing to provide update details if needed. However, if someone knows what is happening off the top of there head, there is no need for details.

Let me know! Check out the picture

Hi,
It's just the tablet mode is activated, you can turn it off from the action center (bottom right) or from the settings
