Sooo.... Does anyone think they will add more tablet functions in Win10, or are we stuck?

    <<...I'd be much happier if they'd just bring back an option for the HWR features/interface which we had in Vista...>>

    +1 (Or at least some comparable UI)

    Sorry, don't understand. What are HWR features? Hand Writing Recognition? If so, what were those?

    I've only started using tablets since HP-TM2T + Win7. In retrospect, it was pretty advanced for its day.

    Yes; handwriting recognition. Some of us feel that earlier incarnations of the TIP (Tablet Input Panel) offered a better UX (e.g. auto-expansion of the writing area, etc.) and that the current TIP is several steps backward from where it used to be in that respect...

    I thought of this old thread when I saw this video comparing Windows 8.1 to Windows 10:


    One truly sad thing is that you can't get Edge into full screen from a tablet. You have to use a keyboard to get there. That's just crazy stupid.

    Unless I'm misunderstanding, the full screen option is in the top right Edge menu, next to the zoom settings. Or is that too cumbersome?

    I think I prefer the Win 10 UI more than 8.1. It totally merged the modern UI and legacy desktop unlike in 8.1.

    I still don't like the Settings app in Win10.

    Full control still requires you to jump back to Control Panel, but they keep deprecating features out from CP, while Settings gets useless and restrictive on/off sliders buried in unintuitive sub-menus.

    Still a hack job of a system UI in my opinion, and I often find myself wishing they would just axe the Settings app completely.

    Trying to make windows less complicated to the less savvy. Power users can still find ways to do their thing. No?

    Power users will always find a way to get what they want. ;)
