Not just for dual screens

Software King of the World Microsoft has confirmed it is planning to refocus Windows 10X on single-screen devices.

Microsoft's Windows and devices chief Panos Panay said the world was a different place when it first showed off a new category of dual-screen Windows devices.

Vole is reprioritising Windows 10X for laptops and single-screen devices because of the coronavirus pandemic. The software maker has seen a 75 percent year-over-year increase in the time spent in Windows 10. More people are turning to using their laptops or PCs instead of a smartphone or tablet during the lockdowns we've seen worldwide to work or study.

"With Windows 10X, we designed for flexibility, and that flexibility has enabled us to pivot our focus toward single-screen Windows 10X devices that use the power of the cloud to help our customers work, learn and play in new ways."

Microsoft isn't saying exactly when single-screen devices like laptops will support Windows 10X, nor when dual-screen devices will launch with the OS. However, Windows 10X will launch on single-screen devices first.

"We will continue to look for the right moment, in conjunction with our OEM partners, to bring dual-screen devices to market", Panay said.
