Yoga 500 doesn't switch to tablet mode

I just bought a Lenovo Yoga 500 but id doesn't detect the different modes. It changed only two times but then it didn't change back. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Re: Yoga 500 doesn't switch to tablet mode

Hi Heck,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Forums.

 

Windows 10 is definitely better designed to be used in table mode and switch between a table mode and computer mode use. Despite that I expected some learning curve, I found that the Windows 10 environment is immediately very intuitive to use. When in Windows 10, you can access the table-mode settings by navigating to Windows 10 Settings > System > Tablet Mode.

Also, Turns out there is a screen lock position button on the side. You might have pressed it by accident....that's what I did.

 

Let us know how you get on.

Hi Shashi_Lenovo,

 

This option is already on. The screen lock button doesn't do anything because it thinks its in laptop mode. The rotation button in the action center is also grey (as if it isn't available).

Hi Heck,

 

Thank you for your quick responses!

 

I've deleted Lenovo Transition, restarted my PC and installed a newer version from here: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/transit136w81.exe

 

Also, Select "Don't ask me and always switch" from the "When this device automatically switches" menu if you want Windows 10 to switch modes on your 2-in-1 without prompting you

Hi Heck,

 

Ok... seems that disabling a Lenovo service called YMC (through the task manager) completely solves this issue with no negative effects. The service is in charge of disabling the keyboard in tablet mode etc., but it seems that it's redundant in Windows 10 (perhaps Windows controls this itself?).

Disable, if it causes problems enable it again.

 

Good luckSmiley Happy

I disabled and sopped the ymc service. The rotation button in the action center works again but it still doesn't rotate my screen and the keyboard still doesn't disable and tablet mode doesn't enable.

Hi Heck,

 

Type regedit and tap OK in the Run dialog.

Open Registry Editor through Command Prompt.

PressWindows+X, and choose Command Prompt in the menu.

Type regedit in the Command Prompt window and press Enter

 

The .reg files below will modify the DWORD in the registry key below.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell

TabletMode DWORD

0 = Off
1 = On

 

Good luckSmiley Happy & Let us know how you get on.
