What is Windows 10x?
Windows 10X is the new Windows 10 version for foldable PCs and dual-screen laptops. Basically, a Windows-based operating system for these computers. And as such, it can put in beautiful functionality that other models of Windows 10 don’t.
This isn’t a brand new operating system, so it doesn’t have a completely new application. Windows 10X tends to be based on the Windows Core operating system.
Windows 10X is intended to take advantage of multiple screens on a single system easier than Windows 10, as we now know. While the fundamentals of Windows remain the same, there are configuration improvements and the resulting experience, including improved multitasking, a reissued start screen, and more. But Microsoft has changed course now and confirms that Windows 10X only falls on single-screen monitors and notebooks first.
There are explanations for the move. Microsoft emphasizes that the use of Windows 10 computers has risen dramatically – there is a growth of 75 percent during the year. Maybe that millions worked from home after the coronavirus pandemic worldwide. They claim windows 10 users now spend 4 trillion minutes per month. At this time, reprioritizing Windows 10X placement for notebooks and tablets with one screen makes sense.
With Windows 10X, we designed for flexibility, and that flexibility has enabled us to pivot our focus toward single-screen Windows 10X devices that leverage the power of the cloud to help our customers work, learn and play in new ways,” says Panos Panay in the post. “These single-screen devices will be the first expression of Windows 10X that we deliver to our customers, and we will continue to look for the right moment, in conjunction with our OEM partners, to bring dual-screen devices to market.
Microsoft has not yet confirmed that when we should be able to see the Windows 10 X for our single-screen laptops or desktops but it is expected to be released somewhere in late 2020
