Microsoft finally added a new feature to Windows 10 Mobile for those in the Windows Insider program. For months, Microsoft has only been adding bug fixes and improvements to Windows 10 Mobile’s Insider Preview releases and there hasn’t been any notable new additions to the OS for a little while now. All of that changes today with the release of Windows 10 Mobile build 15235.
Microsoft today added a new feature to Windows 10 Mobile’s Continuum feature. Continuum now includes a portrait mode, which means it now works better for users with vertical monitor setups or portrait oriented monitors. In the past, there was no way of making Continuum adapt to the orientation of your monitor and everything just looked off, but the new portrait mode will help fix that. It’s worth noting that Continuum won’t automatically adapt to the orientation of your monitor just yet, so you’ll have to manually enable the portrait orientation for your monitor.
In order to do that, head over to Settings > System > Display on your phone, and select the “Connected Display” from the Select Display dropdown. After that, change the Display Orientation to Portrait to enable the new portrait orientation. The orientation won’t change automatically, and you will have to reconnect your phone to your monitor if you are using a wired or a wireless connection.
