Enable keyboard in tablet mode with external monitor

Hi everyone,


I have an external monitor hooked to my Yoga 730. I use the external monitor only, and would like to be able to use the Yoga's keyboard when in tablet mode like in the picture below. Some people have suggested using a magnet to disable some sensor, like here, but I would like a software solution. 


Has anyone succeded?

Re: Enable keyboard in tablet mode with external monitor

Hi thisisatest,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Have you already tried changing configuration within WIndows tablet mode settings as directed here and here


The are also applications that you can disable at start up that can also help control switching mode. Specific to the drivers, Energy Manager Driver with Yoga Mode Control for Windows 10 is the ones responsible for the software side.


I hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how it goes.

Sorry for necro-ing, but you can end the Yoga Mode Control service in task manager. It works.
