Owners of touchscreen computers that use the Windows operating system will probably want to know that Microsoft (Microsoft) has begun testing a new interface that should be more convenient than the one launched with Windows 8, and has been markedly lacking in sympathy.
The 18970 edition of its operating system, ahead of the first update of 2020, offers, according to the company’s announcement , for experimenters with 2-in-1 computers to try a new interface designed for such computers. The interface will automatically run on the reversible and detachable mobile device with the switch to tablet mode, and will include some changes.
First, the taskbar will be more similar to what people are used to in the normal desktop mode, but the icons will be slightly farther apart to allow precise finger-clicking on each. The search and Cortana will only be displayed as icons, without a search box, to save space on the taskbar. The Start menu will display similar to desktop mode, rather than the tile screen currently displayed when using the tablet interface. In addition, the file explorer will also move to a larger, touch-sensitive view.
Another new option in the new version of Windows is the use of downloading Windows 10 installation files from Microsoft servers to reset the computer. While such a download takes time, even on a relatively fast Internet connection, its availability will save the gigabytes that files currently occupy on computers, most of which come with relatively small SSDs.
