With Windows 8.1, Microsoft allowed OEMs to sell full Windows tablets at any size of 7-inch and above. Using classic Win32 apps on a 7-inch screen didn’t offer great experience and Microsoft was aware of this issue. Joe Belfiore from Microsoft today confirmed that Windows Desktop and classic Win32 apps support will be only there in 8-inch and above Windows tablets. This also means that devices which have display size less than 8-inch like phones, phablets, small tablets won’t have Windows desktop experience.
