    Windows 10 can be signed in as a tablet or as an Desktop while login .This can be changed in the Table mode settings in Windows 10 settings . i have changed the mode to login as desktop while login in this Tablet mode settings while login and restarted my System .

    This solved the issue.

    Hello Prasand,

    You should go to the latest sapui5 library version and check if your issue is solved.

    Check the following release inforamtion note:

    2482210 - ABAP SAPUI5 1.38 release

    Currently the latest patch is 1.38.34

    Any case I reproduced in my device (windows 10) and sap.ui.Device.system.tablet is returning false

    Thank you.

    Kind regards,
