microsoft surface proMicrosoft’s Windows 10 is an operating system that powers devices ranging from phones to consoles to tablets to laptops. While it has been argued before that an operating system that tries to do too much will inevitably be mediocre at most things, Microsoft touts Windows 10 as an example. Indeed, the best selling device that the firm puts out hardware wise is the Surface Pro hybrid device which is by all accounts a tablet-focused device.

For tablet mode users, a full-screen Start Screen, full-screen apps, and larger buttons would transform that desktop experience into a tablet experience. We have a lot more posted on OUR FORUM.
