Microsoft will roll out a new tablet experience for 2-in-1 convertible PCs. This new experience allows users entering tablet posture to stay in the familiar desktop experience without interruption, plus a few key touch improvements:

  • Increased spacing between Taskbar icons.
  • Search box on taskbar collapsed into an icon.
  • File Explorer switches to touch optimized layout.
  • Touch keyboard auto invokes when you tap text fields.

Here are the steps to enable the mode once 20H1 is installed.

  1. Use your convertible PC as a laptop as you normally would–opening apps and interacting with them.
  2. When you’re ready to pick it up and go or simply lean back on the couch, you can fold back the keyboard or remove it altogether, and it should switch to this new mode shown above.
  3. Now use your device as a tablet with touch.

Recovery Improvements

Introducing a new Reset this PC option–Cloud Download

In Windows 10 version 2004, “reset this PC” now provides users a new choice to download Windows or use local reinstall. Previously, Reset this PC was only able to do a local reinstall and would build a new Windows installation from existing Windows files.

The cloud download option will reinstall the same build, version, and edition, that is currently installed on your device. This new cloud download option is available to all Windows 10 devices and is different from the “Recover from the cloud” feature available on some earlier Windows 10 devices.

This is a recovery operation and will remove apps you have installed. Additionally, if the “Remove everything” option is selected, user data will also be deleted.
