Yesterday, Microsoft made available the first public build of Windows 10X for developers to start testing their apps for dual-screen devices. It's our first real look at Windows 10X, and gives us an early look at some of the new features and experiences that Microsoft is building on this new version of Windows. Let's go hands-on with the new build and check out what's new.
Windows 10X is like Windows 10 Mobile but with Win32 support too. While it's complicated internally, the end result is a simple experience where all your apps can run on the Surface Neo and other dual-screen PCs. Whether it's UWP, Win32, or PWA Windows 10X treats them all the same. Here is how it all works.
At Microsoft's 365 Developer Day, the company has confirmed that Windows 10X will feature faster Windows Update experiences that should keep full feature updates to under 90 seconds when requiring a reboot. This is a huge improvement over Windows 10, which can take anywhere from 5-20 minutes to install a feature update once it's ready to reboot.
A video that's likely part of Microsoft's Developer day showcases Adobe Spark on the Surface Duo and Windows 10X. In the video, Adobe discusses how it optimized the app for the Duo's dual-screens, including letting people drag and drop content between the device's screens.
Microsoft has started sharing more information around its upcoming Windows 10X operating system for dual-screen and foldable PCs. It's a new version of Windows 10 built on a modern core that strips out legacy components in favor of a lightweight and streamlined user experience. Because of this, not all Win32 programs will be compatible with Windows 10X.
Microsoft has today shared more information regarding app development for the upcoming Windows 10X operating system, as well as how developers can adapt Android apps to support Microsoft’s Surface Duo. Foldable and dual-screen devices offer new ways for app developers to present their apps through functionality such as spanning, and Microsoft wants developers to be ready for when these...
Today's Microsoft Developer Day is a chance for developers to learn the best ways to optimize app experience for Windows 10X, the Surface Neo, and the Surface Duo. It's also a chance for us to gawk at Microsoft's new dual-screen efforts.
We're back with another exciting episode of the Windows Central Podcast, and this week, developers can start writing apps for Surface Duo thanks to a newly released SDK, and the Windows 10X SDK isn't far behind. Enthusiasts can even check out a Surface Duo emulator on Windows 10 to get a feel for what the device will be like.
Lenovo is gearing up to launch the first foldable PC later this summer, but it'll initially only be available with Windows 10 Pro. I'm here to tell you to skip this version, and wait for the variant that comes with Windows 10X, as that's what will make the foldable PC experience. Without it, you might as well just buy a normal PC.

This year is going to be a big one for Microsoft, from the launch of the Xbox Series X to the Surface Duo and Neo, Windows 10X, and beyond. Here's a look at everything we're looking forward to in 2020.
We're back with another exciting episode of the Windows Central Podcast, and this week, Windows 7 support is ending on January 15, so what's the next step for the 300+ million devices still running it? Microsoft may ship the Surface Hub 2X with a version of Windows 10X. In the biggest news of the week, the Xbox Series X was unveiled at The Game Awards on December 13, 2019. The beastly,...
Microsoft's Surface Hub 2X hasn't been talked about since its initial announcement in late 2018. In fact, it's not been seen since then either. What's going on with it? Is it dead? We've done some digging and found some interesting information.
Internal Microsoft documentation has revealed new details around Microsoft's upcoming Windows 10X operating system announced earlier this month for foldable PCs. The documentation reveals minor details around some of the user experience changes and enhancements you can expect to see on Windows 10X, and also confirms what I've been hearing about how Windows 10X will also be made...
It's another week, and another episode of the Windows Central Podcast. In this episode, Zac and Dan talk about 19H2 reaching RTM, and the future for Windows with Windows 10X on the horizon. They also talk about why the Surface Neo and Duo run different operating systems, and the idea of a Surface Watch. Listen now!
Are you confused around Microsoft's decision to use two different operating systems across both the Surface Neo and Surface Duo? Do you think they should have chosen one, either Android or Windows, and stuck with it for both? That's a terrible idea — this is why Microsoft chose two different operating systems instead of one.
Last week, Microsoft announced Windows 10X, a new version of Windows 10 that it says is designed specifically for foldable PCs in both dual-screen and single-screen configurations. Devices like the Surface Neo and Lenovo's foldable ThinkPad X1 will be some of the first devices to ship with this new version of Windows, and it'll be exclusive to this form factor at launch.But what about more traditional form factors like laptops or tablets? Can we expect to see Windows 10X on those in the future?
