Display - Desktop

HP Recommended
Example: Pavilion X360

Hi! It looks like it was an update on my main screen. I would like to know how do I get my desktop as my main screen or display. I can't see my files or photos on my desktop. Right now when I turn on  my laptop   it shows me all the apps, games ... I just want to have my desktop files on my landing page.

Your screen might be in "Tablet" mode.

Settings > System > Tablet mode


In the drop-down menu under "When I sign in"


Use the appropriate mode for my hardware


Use Desktop mode


(and this starts the Windows Start Screen)

Use Tablet mode


Next, In the drop-down menu under "When this device automatically switches tablet mode on or off"


Always ask me before switching

Don't ask me and don't switch


(and this one will decide for you)

Don't ask me and always switch
