Windows 7: "You appear to be using a tablet"

"You appear to be using a tablet"

In a rush to hook up a projector for a meeting/presentation, I plugged the HDMI cable into the second video board port. I now know there is a procedure to connect a projector.
I currently get the warning (image), not sure if I need to fix whatever that is before I mount the projector properly.
First post!
Thank you

Hi there.

If you wish to disable tablet mode, you can follow the below steps:

1 Click "Start" and then click "Control Panel."

2 Double-click "Programs and Features." If you do not see this option, click "Classic View" on the left side of the window. This brings up a list of installed programs.

3 Click "Turn Windows features on and off" on the left side of the window. This opens a new window containing a list of the optional Windows features that are installed on the computer.

4 Remove the check from the box labeled "Tablet PC Optional Components" and click "OK." Note that removing optional Windows components can take 10 to 15 minutes or more, even on fast computers. Be patient. Restart your computer after this process is complete.

5 Click "Start" and then click "Control Panel" after returning to the desktop.

6 Double-click "Administrative Tools" and then double-click "Services."

7 Scroll down to "Tablet PC Input Service." This service should now say "Disabled." The tablet PC components have been removed from the computer.
