    Microsoft Makes the Desktop Touch-Friendly in Windows 10

    Posted: 03 Jan 2015

    Microsoft is indeed working to make the desktop in Windows 10 better for those who still rely on the mouse and keyboard as the main input method, but touch users won’t be neglected in this upcoming release.

    In fact, while the desktop will be significantly improved to be used with the mouse and most Metro features will be gone from it, there’s at least one way that Microsoft is considering to make the desktop touch-friendly in the new OS version.

    McAkins found that, when running Windows 10 on a touch-capable device, the context menus on the desktop look different when they’re launched with a touch input, thus making it easier to use on tablets and 2-in-1s.

    This could be what makes my final decision on Win 10

    For me I want the same interface with touch as I do with keyboard/mouse not a different one and when using Metro/Modern apps I want no sign of desktop elements showing

    For those who use touch on their main computers this sounds like a good thing it also sounds as if though Microsoft is looking more to the future with touch.
