What happened to the ''Tablet PC Settings'' option in Control Panel?

Hi Everyone, 

I'm running Windows 10 Pro build 1703. 

I have a little touchscreen monitor attached to my PC.

I am attempting to locate, and use, the Tablet PC Settings option, which used to be in Control Panel. 

Unfortunately, Tablet PC Settings are totally gone. 

I attempted the workaround that places a shortcut to Tablet PC Settings on my desktop, via the instructions below. 

Unfortunately, all of the options are greyed-out. 



I'm not sure why that would have been removed from the Control Panel?

Here is a possible workaround until this issue can be resolved.

Go to the Desktop.

Right click on the Desktop and select New/Shortcut.

In the Type the location of the item window, Copy/Paste the following.

%windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{80F3F1D5-FECA-45F3-BC32-752C152E456E}

Click the Next button and type the name Tablet PC Settings.

Click the Finish button.

Double Click the new shortcut and it should open the Table PC Settings window.

[Moved from: Windows / Windows 10 / Windows Ink & touch]

Tablet Settings still there, but not in Control Panel - it's in Settings which is not the same thing.

Type tablet mode into the search box.
