Is there any way to ban tablet mode in a thinkpad yoga 14?

Hi. Occasionally, my thinkpad yoga 14 went to tablet mode by mistake in standard mode, and the keyboard was disabled. I was wondering is there any way to disable or ban tablet mode forever? Thx!

Hi Everbeen

Have you tried disable tablet mode in Windows?

Presse: Win
Go to : System - System - Tablet Mode -
Slide "Tablet Mode" to Off

In When sign in, set it it to:
"Don't ask me and always switch"

Hi William, thanks for the reply.

 

Sorry for the confusion. But by "Tablet mode", I mean the mode in contrast to the "Desktop mode". Maybe a better way to describe the question is, how to disable the keyboard lock in the "Tablet mode"? When the problem comes, the screen goes up-side-down, and the keyboard input is disabled. I guess the laptop "think" I was in the Tablet mode by mistake (like I have bent it to a tent or tablet mode).

 

Attached is a picture of when this happens. Note that the lights in the keyboard is off. In this situation, the keyboard is completely disabled.
