A few interesting announcement has been made its way to the Microsoft’s latest Developer Day event and one of them was the Microsoft Windows 10X operating system that is basically a version of the popular operating system that works better on dual screen devices.
At the Developer Day of this year, Microsoft finally unleashed its much anticipated Windows 10X emulator. This simply means that, users would no longer have to rely on individual OEMs proprietary workarounds for the new format, which are generally clunk at best. The software giant has also released two new videos to show off the new Windows version running on the Surface Duo and Surface Neo notebooks.
This new development is in a way making ways for companies like LG and ZTE who have already offered us a glimpse of what you can achieve in terms of productivity as well.
Just like the Neo, the Surface Duo, a dual screen notebook from Microsoft, also signifies the new parameters that an additional display opens up. Microsoft is trying to state that it would only require a few additional lines of coding to benefit from the new format. In other words, it is fairly simple to update existing Windows apps to better support and utilize two screen seamlessly.
One example of an app making this switch is PicsArt, an image editing application for the Windows OS. The primary screen shows the controls and the edits while the secondary screen displays the finished product. It also includes other special features, like optimizations for the Surface Pen, offering highly precise editing.
