So far, Microsoft has not shared anything about the upcoming Windows 10X, but the company is expected to launch a variation of its operating system to roll out with the Surface Neo. And a new leak has given us a closer look at how the tech giant will customize the user experience on dual-screen devices.
According to a Twitter user with previous leaks about Microsoft, an internal document accidentally went live on Friday includes details about Windows 10X. The document was removed quickly but other outlets have got some information.
The company previously hinted that it would make over the taskbar for a unique interface for dual-screen devices, The Verge reported, this obviously incorporates multiple levers for customizing its base model on both foldable and clamshells. This means Windows 10X may also work with older laptop models. In addition, the notifications center may have additional options for configuration.
As Microsoft is marketing the upcoming Surface Neo and Surface Duo as combinations of a phone, tablet, and laptop, these options are likely to allow users to move between traditional interfaces on these devices, which may let them select their favorite elements to mix together and form something new.
It was also suggested by Microsoft itself that there will be similar changes to the Start Menu, which will likely be rebranded as the Launcher in Windows 10X. The document says that the company will integrate available apps, web results and certain files on devices. It will also significantly update the recommended content based on websites, files, and apps that users use the most recently and frequently, the Verge reported.
Besides, Microsoft will make it easier to unlock devices for you. Engadget shared that the company is killing the lock curtain with this operating system, and will instead trigger Windows Hello, its facial recognition software, instantly each time you wake the device.
Microsoft hasn’t made any public comments on the leaks, so we can’t say 100% for sure they are all true, for now. And the firm didn’t respond immediately to a request for an inquiry.
