[SOLVED] Windows 10 Is Stuck In Some Weird Tablet Mode And I'm Not Certain How To Restore It To Desktop Mode

Hello,

My Dad was fumbling around on his Windows 10 system, and he accidentally pressed something (he's not sure what), which caused the taskbar to increase massively in size (see URL below):

Does anyone know how to restore the taskbar to it's original size?

Thank you,
Nelson
Can you set the mouse pointer at the top of the task bar so you get a up/down arrow?
If so just drag the size back down to where you want it.

Hello Bob.B,

It worked!

I feel pretty stupid not having tried that.

The problem was that when my Dad said he touched something, it sounded like he enabled something like tablet mode, which is why I didn't think to drag the taskbar down.

A big thank you for your help,
Nelson

You might want to right click the task bar and put a check in lock the task bar.
