Apparently, Microsoft has big plans for Windows 10X, the operating system for dual-display devices.
Windows 10X was announced earlier this month at Microsoft’s scheduled Surface event in New York. The operating system ran on the new Neo Surface with two screens of the company.
According to Microsoft, the new product category requires an enhanced version of Windows 10 for outstanding performance in a highly mobile format.
Speaking of Windows 10X, Redmond said, “Users expect more flexibility from their PCs: They want powerful, highly flexible, fully functional and compatible peripherals that are simple, elegant and versatile in addition to their mobile phones.
“This new hardware requires a Windows 10 expression designed to take advantage of this opportunity – it’s Windows 10X.”
Among the most notable aesthetic differences in Windows 10X include a new taskbar and a redesigned Start menu.
And it seems Microsoft, according to a leaked document, might also consider putting Windows 10X on laptops. This suggests that significant changes could be made to the company’s new PCs.
As the Windows specialist WalkingCat announced, Microsoft temporarily released an internal document on Friday that looked at Windows 10X online. At the time of this writing, her message had been removed, but part of her content had been seen by The Verge.
The document cites the document that Windows 10X was developed for “Flaps and Foldable Objects,” suggesting that it can also be started on laptops.
In addition, the document also looks at the new taskbar of Windows 10X, which he describes as “the same basic model with a set of” levers “that can be used to create alternatives in the model.”
It seems that the iconic Windows 10 Start menu in Windows 10X is simply referred to as the “launcher”. It appears to be “seamlessly integrated with web results, available apps, and device-specific files,” and “the recommended content is dynamically updated to the most popular applications, files, and websites.
As noted by The Verge, this indicates that the renamed Start Menu focuses more on locally stored items on a device than on standard Windows 10.
The Microsoft document would also have created Windows Hello, the facial recognition system that allows fans to unlock their device without having to enter a password every time.
Apparently, Windows Hello has begun to authenticate a user once the PC screen has been activated, not Windows 10, forcing users to skip a security curtain.
Commenting on the changes to Hello in Windows 10X, Microsoft said, “When the screen is turned on, you will immediately be put in the authentication state, unlike Windows 10, you must first close the lock before you can authenticate.
“When the device wakes up, Windows Hello Face immediately recognizes the user and immediately switches to his desktop.”
Some other new features described for Windows 10X are also worth mentioning, such as the new “Modern File Explorer” and the simplification of the Microsoft Maintenance Center.
As mentioned before, the Microsoft document for Windows 10X has since been removed. However, Express.co.uk will update you as soon as we learn more about the new operating system.
