MathType appears in full-screen mode and will not re-size


The information in this document applies to:

 

  • Windows 10
 

Issue

When you open MathType, it fills the screen. You can't "restore" it or change the size of the window:

MathType is maximized and will not resize.

Reason

Your computer is in Tablet Mode.

Solution

Turn off Tablet Mode.

  1. The easiest way to do that is to click the "Notifications" icon in the lower right. It will look like one of these two, depending on whether there are notifications you haven't read yet:

    There are notifications you haven't read yet.There aren't any notifications you haven't read yet.

  2. When you click the Notifications icon, you'll see the Tablet Mode on/off switch:

    Click this button to turn Tablet Mode on or off.

  3. You'll likely want to change your system settings so your computer doesn't boot up in Tablet Mode next time you boot. To do that, press & release the Windows Logo key, to the left of your spacebar: Windows logo key. Type the words tablet mode. The "Best match" should be "Tablet mode settings". Click it.

  4. You'll see something like this:

    Tablet mode settings

  5. Yours may look slightly different, but they'll all have an option to start up in "desktop mode" or "go to desktop", or something similar. Whatever the exact wording on yours, choose the "desktop" option.

That's all there is to it. Your computer should now be out of tablet mode, and the windows should behave normally.


We hope this has been helpful. As always, please let us know if you have questions about this, or if you have additional techniques that work. We'd love to hear from you.
