As a mainstream operating system, Windows 10 is widely used in modern times. Of course, Windows 10 also has continuous improvements both on features and vision. In MiniTool, this post will mainly discuss Windows 10 new tablet experience released by Microsoft.


Microsoft is planning to redesign Windows 10 tablet experience. The firm has started testing new designs for 2-in-1 convertible PCs, which will make the user interface more similar to existing desktop designs.

At present, Windows 10 will introduce you a more tablet-optimized UI that removes taskbar icons and displays the Start menu in full screen when the device switches to Table Mode automatically. Microsoft is now returning some of these changes while retaining some touch-optimized components for 2-in- PCs.

In the new tablet experience, the desktop will remain in full view, the taskbar icons will be visible, and the spacing between them will increase. If enabled, the search box will be collapsed as an icon and the touch keyboard will be displayed when the text field is clicked. File Explorer will also switch to touch optimized layout.
