    Hello...
    I have a Surface Book 2 and I have Always Use Tablet Mode set for When I Sign In and Always Switch To Tablet Mode set for When I Use This Device As A Tablet.
    The problem is, every time I reconnect the screen to the keyboard, it goes back to desktop mode and I have to manually switch back to tablet mode.
    I want to use tablet mode all the time, as I honestly think it works better for any touchscreen-enabled device.
    Is there a way to force it to always use tablet mode (maybe a registry edit or something)?
    Thanks...
    JJ

    The above doesn't really answer the question posted.

    Joshua - try this fix. It supposedly allows you to boot into tablet mode every time, but I don't know of any way to keep it in that mode automatically when you connect the keyboard.
