Windows 10 Start Screen?

Skipjacks 141 57 August 14, 2015 at 08:02 AM
So I know the big hoopla about Windows 10 is that it brings back the traditional Star button and menu.

But I just got a Windows Tablet and for the tablet I actually like the full screen tiles menu. But I also find I need to use the standard desktop a lot for various things.

If I set Windows 10 up to use the full screen tiles menu (The windows 8 standard) can I still easily switch to the traditional desk top by hitting the DESKTOP tile button like I can now?

I want to upgrade and test out Windows 10 but I don't want to lose this functionality.

The tablet mode goes full screen automatically.

You can turn on full screen on desktop version by switching to tablet mode

Yeah I know that.

But on Windows 10 if I'm in Tablet mode, can I just click the DESKTOP icon to switch to desktop mode like I can on Windows 8?

I think the answer is . . . sort of. There isn't a tablet mode for the most part anymore. There is a way to bring up something in the desktop that resembles it, looks like the tablet mode running in a window on the desktop.

I would assume that hitting your button would return to desktop but I never tested that. I played with the earlier builds on a Surface Pro 2 so I can't promise I am still correct since I really avoided most of everything that resembled the tile look.
