Microsoft unveils new tablet experience for Windows 10

Microsoft is planning to redesign the tablet experience for Windows 10. The software giant has started testing a new design for 2-in-1 convertible PCs that will keep the user interface more similar to the existing desktop design. Currently, Windows 10 throws you into a more tablet-optimized UI that removes task bar icons and puts the Start menu full-screen when a device automatically switches into “tablet mode.” Microsoft is now walking back some of those changes, while keeping some touch-optimized elements for 2-in-1 PCs. In the new tablet experience, the desktop will remain in full view, with the task bar icons visible and increased spacing between them. If enabled, the search box will collapse into an icon, and the touch keyboard will appear when you tap on a text field. File Explorer will also switch to a touch-optimized layout. We’ll have to try these design tweaks fully to see how many other changes have been made.



Microsoft is testing this with Windows Insiders and has marked the design as beta, suggesting it will change and be shaped by feedback. Still, it’s hard not to see this as Microsoft walking back from a dedicated tablet experience in Windows 10. These new changes will trigger automatically when you remove a keyboard from a device like a Surface Pro, and Microsoft has confirmed that a dedicated “tablet mode” will remain but you’ll have to enable it manually. Microsoft already dropped a large amount of its Windows 8 tablet features that worked well on hybrid devices, and this tweak bring us back to the days of minimal Windows 7 touch improvements. These changes are only being made for 2-in-1 devices, so dedicated Windows 10 tablets will continue to have the full tablet experience that exists in the operating system. Microsoft is looking for feedback either way, and Windows tablet fans will definitely be ready to jump in and test these changes. Alongside the tablet experience changes, Microsoft is now testing a cloud download option to reset and restore Windows 10 PCs. It’s similar to what has existed in macOS for years and for some Surface devices, and it will allow Windows users to quickly reinstall the OS without needing it to be installed on the local disk or having a recovery USB drive.

New One Piece Chapter 955 Makes Unexpected Alliance

When something serious is about to go down in the popular franchise One Piece chapter 955, creator Eiichiro Oda lets you know in the most dramatic way possible: by Beast Pirates And Bigmom Pirates Alliance. Seven days before the raid of Onigashima, Kawamatsu succeeded in obtaining a large number of swords their forces can use for the battle. Along with this, Zoro finally agrees to return the Shusui to the people of Wano in exchange of Enma. Princess Hiyori insisted on the return of the sword as they considered it a relic to the country. She expressed that the country of Wano has been in much tribulation ever since the sword was taken from them, and hopes that the return of Shusui will bring good fortune once again to the country.


Zoro probably agrees because of Hiyori’s tale that the Enma – her own father’s sword – was the only blade to ever injure Kaido in battle. And knowing Zoro’s interest in legendary swords, he would probably want to test if the tales were true. The last time w…

Spider-Man Dead: New Upcoming Marvel Comic Unsettling Truth

It seems that Spider-Man goes to have a brush with death in an upcoming comic of Marvel’s Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. Marvel despatched new solicitation details about points #11 and #12 of the Tom Taylor-written collection to publishers, revealing that Spidey might be discovered lifeless in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man issue 12.



“Spider-Man day has been and gone,” Taylor mentioned in a tweet when the information broke on Friday. “So, now’s time to say Spidey dies in our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #12.” It should come as no shock to most comic e-book readers that this supposed dying of Spider-Man is much less deadly than it seems. In any case, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #13 is already solicited, and Amazing Spider-Man continues to be ongoing. Additionally, the textual solicitation content for the comic means that Spider-Man must resolve his personal murder.



Maybe that’s not the real Spider-Man who’s discovered lifeless then? One other chance entails the story te…
