Microsoft revealed the upcoming version of Windows named Windows 10 last month. They demoed several new features that will be part of this upcoming Windows release. But the highlight of the demo was a feature which Microsoft called as ‘Continuum’. Microsoft adapts the Windows user experience based on whether you are using your 2-in-1 device in tablet or keyboard/mouse mode. When you have keyboard connected to your device, apps will be opened in Windowed mode, when you disconnect keyboard from your device, Windows will ask you whether to switch modes, if you press yes, you will be presented with the new Task view with big touch targets. When you press Start Menu, you will be presented with a new Start screen which is a hybrid of the Start Screen and Start Menu.
Speaking at TechEd Europe yesterday, Joe Belfiore revealed that Microsoft is planning to release Continuum features to Windows 10 Preview users before the end of 2014 or by early 2015. Joe mentioned that users will be able to do an in-place upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or later.
