Bug Description

The touch tutorial is inescapable on desktop (without a touchscreen).

I somehow accidentally started Unity8 in touch mode and could use it with a mouse. However after a short while (bug 1607176) the tutorial starts, and there I'm stuck.

Would it also be possible to make the tutorial dismissable with the escape key, or by clicking a close button. Just because I might have a touchscreen, doesn't mean I don't have a keyboard, for example.
