Microsoft released on Wednesday the latest Windows 10 Creators test version, which could represent a leap of quality for its products since now includes a virtual touchpad that allows users to control external monitors from tablets, without the necessity if attaching a mouse. The company explained that this update is designed to provide a virtual trackpad on the screen and sit in the taskbar if selected.
A Simple Way Of Using The Virtual Touchpad
According to the International Business Times, all you have to is to connect your device to a TV, PC, or just another monitor, go to the Action Center and then tap on the "Project" Quick Action. Once you´ve done that, your device can be used like a physical touchpad in order to control content on the screen. If you want to enable the virtual touchpad, you just have to select "Show touchpad button" on the taskbar.
This update represents an important move for Microsoft, considering that is now extending to Window 10 tablets users that don't use a keyboard or a trackpad. Although they don't represent the majority of the company´s customers, it could create a loyalty that could steal many Apple´s users, which is one of Microsoft´s main competitors.
Window 10 Also Released More Updates
According to The Verge, Microsoft is also tuning the Sticky Notes app for Windows 10, alongside the virtual trackpad, so the updates are not reduced to the possibility of controlling contents on a screen with your fingers. The app now has many more languages and its regions are well supported, with the ability to recognize URLs, addresses, phone numbers, stocks in some new countries and emails.
What´s even greater is that the company is improving the Window Ink features, with many options that will improve its quality and capacity as never before. If you´re not a member of Windows Insider Program and you want these new incredible features, you must wait for the final version of the software. Window 10 Creators update will be presented as a free software update earlier next year.
