Since the release of Windows 10 in 2015 Microsoft is constantly improving it with the aim to improve the usability of tablet PC. The company has done a great job in this direction. This is especially noticeable when comparing Windows 10 and previous OS versions, however, work still is over what.
A new build of Windows 10 Insider Preview 19592 for Fast Ring users get the latest test build of the operating system, despite the fact risking unstable, – bought a set of opportunities, which Microsoft calls “Tablet Posture” (posture tablet). They are primarily focused on devices 2-in-1 that are becoming more popular in the market as alternatives to traditional laptops. Possible Tablet Posture was tested with Microsoft in earlier builds of Insider Preview, but for unknown reasons later on they had been abandoned.
Microsoft claims that the new functionality is absolutely not connected with the existing tablet mode and is designed to work on devices 2-in-1:
- icons on the taskbar spaced wider;
- instead of a search string in the task bar displays the search icon;
- the onscreen keyboard is automatically displayed when clicking on a text input field;
- the distance between the elements in the conduit became larger so that they easier to communicate by touch.
Microsoft said that these improvements will not be available simultaneously to all participants in the testing program, instead they will be distributed by waves.
It seems that with the introduction of the Posture of the Tablet, Microsoft wants to provide users with devices 2-in-1 major benefits of full a standard interface without having to switch to advanced tablet mode. This seems like a reasonable compromise.
