Alongside its Microsoft 365 Developer Day focused on dual-screen devices, Microsoft launched the Microsoft Emulator for Windows 10X today. The emulator allows you to emulate Windows 10X and the Surface Neo experience ahead of their launch, letting developers get their apps ready for dual-screen devices.
You can check out all of the development tools you'll need to get started developing for Windows 10X at Microsoft. However, the Microsoft Emulator and the Windows 10X image are both available via the Microsoft Store. You can grab Microsoft Emulator here, while the Windows 10X image is available here.
As of this writing, it appears the Windows 10X image isn't quite ready to download, but it should become available later today.
The emulator comes as Microsoft showed off how developers can easily create dual-screen experiences for both Windows 10X and Surface Duo. We also got more information on how Windows 10X will run, including 90-second updates, the ability to run Win32 apps in containers, security, and more.
