  1. Windows 10X reportedly delayed indefinitely, focus to shift to Windows 10 In what may be disappointing news for Windows fans, Microsoft is reportedly delaying the release of Windows 10X – its next-generation operating system – indefinitely. The report comes from Petri, citing information from those in the know of the matter. Microsoft originally showed off Windows 10X in 2019 alongside the Surface Neo and Surface Duo. While the Surface Duo that was powered by Android made it to the market, the Neo was delayed and Windows 10X was repurposed for single-screen
  2. Windows 10X May Not Be Ready Until Later This Year According To New Report Windows 10X, Microsoft’s answer to Chrome OS, may not be ready until later this year according to a new report from Windows Central. Earlier this month, Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer said that “it’s going to be a massive year” for Windows, though the exec didn’t discuss anything related to Windows 10X or the Windows 10 “Sun Valley” Update during the event. This silence is ahead of the release of “The New Windows” is pretty strange, though Microsoft may have some good reasons to remain s
  3. “The New Windows” is coming soon Microsoft may be planning to market Windows 10X as “The New Windows”. The news comes via reliable Microsoft leaker WalkingCat who tweeted: This could, of course, be referring to either Windows 10X or Windows 10 21H2, but the later is of course only expected in the second half of 2021 and despite the expected ‘Sun Valley’ facelift will not be different enough from Windows 10 to be called “The New Windows.” Windows 10X is Microsoft’s modernized version of Windows with si
  4. Windows 10X feature will prevent unauthorized factory resets Windows 10X is a new streamlined version of Windows designed for security and performance that Microsoft announced in 2019 and plans to launch in Spring 2021 on a new range of devices. Many details so far have been scarce, but thanks to a Windows 10X build that was leaked last week, we can get a good look at the operating system and its features. In addition to a new user interface, Windows 10X also comes with a new feature called "Anti-theft protection," a measure designed to prevent
  5. Windows 10X: Everything you need to know about the foldable PC OS The age of foldable PCs is nigh (Image credit: Microsoft) Windows 10X was going to be one of the most important operating systems to hit the computing world, especially with the age of foldable PCs and laptops already upon us. Foldable phones and dual-screen laptops like the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo, the HP Omen X 2S, and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold are out while devices like the Dell’s Concept Duet and Intel’s Horseshoe Bend (hopefully) are well on their way.
  6. Big changes could be coming as Microsoft prepares Windows 10X Microsoft has said little about its plans for Windows 10X, which was unveiled back in October 2019 for flagship dual-screen devices. In May 2020, Microsoft said it would bring 10X to single-screen devices first and reports suggested that the new operating system would leverage the power of the cloud to run legacy apps. Windows 10X is a variation of Windows 10 that uses modern components rather than legacy and it features a simpler user interface without live tiles or a proper file explorer.
  7. Windows 10X laptops will feature true instant-on ‘Modern Standby’ Microsoft intends for Windows 10X to bring smartphone-like behaviour to the PC, with great reliability, ease of use and easy updates. Another feature it appears will be Instant-on behaviour, with Microsoft’s documentation confirming Windows 10X devices will support ‘Modern Standby’. Modern Standby, introduced with Windows 10, is an expansion of Windows 8.1’s Connected Standby, a low-power idle that allows your computer to stay up to date when it has a network connection avail
  8. Windows 10X to reportedly RTM’ed today We reported a month ago that Windows 10X was set to RTM in December this year. Today WindowsCentral’s Zac Bowden tweeted that the final build of the OS, build 20279, has been compiled. Microsoft will continue to work on minor bugs before devices running the OS is released some time next year. While Windows 10X was originally intended for high-end dual-screen tablets, the OS has now been retargeted for cheaper laptops running UWP apps and PWAs, with the main competition being ChromeOS.
  9. Windows 10X to reportedly still on track for release next year We reported a month ago that Windows 10X was set to RTM in December this year, according to WindowsLatest. Today they have updated us with a report that they project is still on track, with Microsoft working with vendors for Windows 10X-optimized ‘universal Windows drivers’, presumably for devices set to launch in 2021. While Windows 10X was originally intended for high-end dual-screen tablets, the OS has now been retargeted for cheaper laptops running UWP apps and PWAs, with the
  10. Microsoft Edge is about to enter another dimension entirely Edge Chromium web browser is coming to HoloLens 2 (Image credit: Softulka / Shutterstock) Microsoft Edge Insider channels, which give members early access to new builds, have been made available on two additional platforms: HoloLens 2 and Windows 10X. While Microsoft has demoed its flagship browser on Windows 10X before, this is the first time Edge Chromium has appeared on the company’s HoloLens mixed reality platform. Users of HoloLens 2 heads
  11. Microsoft releases download links for Edge Insider builds for Windows 10X Microsoft announced Windows 10X back in October 2019, a brand new OS aimed at dual-screened devices, which debuted alongside the work-in-progress Surface Neo running on the new OS. However, over time, plans changed for Windows 10X as it was repurposed for single-screened devices, with the Surface Neo delayed indefinitely. Now, the new OS is reportedly targeted at low-end devices and is expected to make it to devices as early as spring 2021, with it said to reach RTM status this Decemb
  12. Microsoft to expand Tips app into Learning Hub for Windows 10X Windows 10X, which is expected to show up in low-end laptops sometime next year, will break from the now-familiar Windows 10 UI to present something a bit more tablet-like. This could mean a lot of retraining will be needed, and to address this, Microsoft will reportedly upgrade the Windows 10 Tips app into a new app called Learning Hub. The app will feature an improved UI and more content, including video, images and animations and is designed to get new users up and running quickly.
  13. Windows 10X to reportedly RTM in December, without Win32 app support Microsoft originally developed Windows 10X to support their dual-screened ambitions, but development difficulties eventually caused Microsoft to abandon that plan, and eventually re-target the OS for cheap single-screened laptop-like devices for front-line workers, to compete with ChromeOS. One of the reasons Windows 10X struggled was trying to run Win32 apps in containers in the OS, with Microsoft unable to achieve reasonable performance. Now WindowsLatest reports that Microsoft is fi
  14. Project Acrylic concept bring the Windows 10X look to Windows 10 We have already seen some elements of Windows 10X coming to Windows 10, such as the colourful icons, but designer vGlad has decided to re-image the whole OS in the style of the new sibling. The design, of course, draws heavily on Acrylic effects, and also brings an updated Start menu to the desktop OS. One of the best features of Acrylic design is the subtle animations, which can be seen in vGlad’s video below:
  15. Windows 10X: Train wreck in slow motion – or the future of Windows? Microsoft hasn't said much about Windows 10X – and what it has spelled out so far leaves the company's plans unclear. Is 10X the next version of Windows 10? Or a dead end? Gerd Altmann / Modified by IDG Comm. (CC0) If you’re a resolute Windows watcher, you may have heard about Windows 10X, the new version of Windows Microsoft has been cooking up. But there’s a great deal of confusion about Windows 10X, because Microsoft hasn’t been forthcoming about
  16. Microsoft confirms that Windows 10X will be on single-screen PCs first; Surface Neo delayed Microsoft announced Windows 10X in October, aimed squarely at dual-screen devices. It also announced the Surface Neo as the first PC to run the new OS. However, everything has changed. The Surface Neo will no longer be the first PC to run Windows 10X, and Windows 10X is now aimed at single-screen PCs, at least at first. The news was first leaked last month by ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, so this isn't entirely surprising. It was confirmed by Windows and Devices ch
  17. Today, Microsoft is holding its Developer Day event focused on dual-screen experiences, and with it come a few announcements. For starters, just like it had promised, the company has released the Microsoft Emulator and tools so developers can start working on developing for Windows 10X and dual-screen devices to make use of the new form factor. The emulator includes a tool that lets users view a 3D render of a Surface Neo-like device to see the effects of moving the screens around the hinge. Microsoft also updated the Surface Duo SDK, which it released last month. The new version i
  18. Someone got Windows 10X running on a MacBook Earlier this week, Microsoft released the first public emulator for Windows 10X, giving people the chance to play around with the new operating system. But even though Windows 10X is made for dual-screen and foldable devices, it was only a matter of time until someone figured out how to get it running on a regular old laptop. That's exactly what Twitter user @imbushuo did, getting Windows 10X running on a MacBook, of all things. You'll notice that the UI is the same a
  19. Windows 10X for single-screen devices spotted in Windows 10X emulator We have heard previously that Microsoft has fallen behind in Windows 10X development, and would be pushing back the release of the Surface Neo and other dual-screen Windows 10x products till 2021. Part of that rumour was also however that Microsoft was still trying to get Windows 10X released for single-screened devices. Now just such an image was spotted in the Windows 10X emulator, as uncovered by Gustave Monce. Said to be for a single, large-screen device, it is unclear
  20.

  21. The new Windows 10X Clipboard+Emoji tool is pretty nice The new Windows 10 Insider Build 20185 brought a number of cool features to Windows 10, including some features of Windows 10X.

  22. Windows 10X details revealed in major leak Microsoft has mostly kept details of Windows 10X- a version of Windows 10 that has been tailored to dual-screen devices- under wraps.

  25. Microsoft might be building an IoT version of Windows 10X It's been a while since there's been a significant feature update for Windows 10 IoT Core.
