How to get around tablet mode on Windows 10

Oh my gracious, how I (sometimes) loathe default settings.

In Windows 10, for example, the default to "prompt" for tablet mode, when I'm exclusively on a laptop, is infuriating.

Here's how I get around that!

Let's open the Start Menu, and click on the Settings app.

Now click System, then Tablet Mode.

So, the click path is

Start >> Settings >> System >> Tablet Mode

Set the options :

"When I sign in" to use desktop mode
"When this device automatically switches tablet mode on or off" to don't ask me and don't switch
"Hide app icons on the taskbar in tablet mode" to off
"Automatically hide the taskbar in tablet mode" to off

Lastly, restart either your PC, or at least the problematic app - for me, it was Remote Desktop - and try again.

That's it!
