Windows 10 2004: Does update KB4557957 enable tablet mode?

[German]In June 2020, Microsoft released the KB4557957 cumulative update for Windows 10 version 2004. As a result, in June or July 2020, some users may have had tablet mode enabled. It's been a few days, but I'll take it up with you. Here is some information I received from German blog reader Markus.


Update KB4557957 for Windows 10 Version 2004

Cumulative Update KB4557957 raises the OS build to 19041.329. The update is available for Windows 10 version 2004 and for Windows Server version 1903 and Windows Server version 2004. The update includes quality improvements but does not include new operating system features. I reported about the update in the blog post Patchday: Windows 10-Updates (June 9, 2020). The update also makes some optimizations in the touch area, so that undocking a dock should work.

Users are annoyed about activated touch mode

German blog reader Markus already informed me at the beginning of July about an observation he made with his customers. He made the whole thing the subject of this post. There he wrote:

On some Windows 10 customer computers the tablet mode has been activated in June/July 2020. The annoying consequence for many users: The start menu covers parts or the whole desktop.

Markus suspects that the problem seems to be caused by the update KB4557957, which should improve the touch experience and make it easier to switch between tablet and desktop mode. He referenced this article from Windows Latest as a source, who noticed that, too. Markus notes that these issues all occurred on stand alone PCs or notebooks without touch display. Update KB4557957 was a real problem bear, as it was also responsible for several printer failures (see also Windows 10: Printer issues after June 2020 Updates). If you are affected by this problem and are looking for a remedy to switch off the tablet mode again, you can find it in this article.
