When I generate Responsive HTML5 output the TOC only shows the book that is associated with the default topic that it opens to. How can I change this so that users can see all books in the TOC. Users could easily get the impression that the book that opens is the only content available. Multiscreen HTML5 output shows all books, while also indicating which topic is open but, Responsive HTML5 (where the UI looks so much better) is not allowing this default TOC to appear with all sections.
The second screenshot is what I would like to open to--you can see how a user might not know that SECURITY, DISCOVERY, DATA SOURCE, and PREPARE sections are available in the first screenshot. The user will only get to that (5 book/section) view by clicking on INTRODUCTION TO PODIUM, which they might not intuitively know to do.

All books will be shown with opened topic in "Desktop View". From the posted images, it is clear that you are viewing it in "Tablet" mode.
In Tablet, it works this way only. It is as designed because of space crunch due to small size of screen.
Workaround will be to view it in Desktop mode.
Thanks and Regards,
Keep in mind that it may be possible to have tablet view on a desktop PC depending on your screen resolution and/or the size of your browser window. At least, this occurs with RH11 responsive HTML5. I'm unsure if there is a way to prevent this on desktop PCs.
From the images I'd say you're using RH2015, right? If so, In the TOC mobile section of the layout you can toggle this behaviour. By default the output uses the drilldown TOC. You can choose the regular TOC for desktop and mobile as well.
I forgot to mention it earlier. You can surely opt for what Willam has suggested.
When you edit the Responsive Layout, you can set the mobile drill down toc to false.
Thanks so much for the informative, multiple solutions. All I had to do was change from TOC (Tablet/Mobile) to TOC (Desktop) though I had not yet learned how to switch up the properties in the Layout customization, lots of fine-tuning can be done here.
I had this exact same question, but when I changed the Mobile TOC Drill Down to false, the output still opened only the book associated with the default topic. Is there something more that should be done? I only have two top level books with associated topics, so it would be great if both those books were open when users access the online help.
On Tablet and Mobile layout? Or both of them?
If you refresh the browser with Ctrl + F5 to force the cache, do you still see the issue?
