It seems Windows 10 has a lot to offer to its users in its upcoming update. On Wednesday (9 November), Microsoft rolled out a preview build of Windows 10 Creators Update with version 14965 for Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. The test build is available for Mobile and PC platforms.
A noteworthy feature of this release is the virtual touchpad that lets users to drive content on a second display from tablet, without attaching a mouse. All you need to do is just connect your device to another monitor, PC or TV, then go to Action Center and tap on the "Project" Quick Action to extend the display.
You can use it just like you use a physical touchpad to control content on the connected screen. To enable virtual touchpad, press and hold on the taskbar and select "Show touchpad button".
Once enabled, you could see a touchpad icon appearing in the notification area, and tapping on it will launch the virtual touchpad. And to customise touchpad setting to your preference, go to Settings>> Device >> Touchpad.
Alongside virtual touchpad, the other highlight of this preview build is the Sticky Notes app update to version 18.104.22.168. The new version adds support to more languages and regions. The preview build also includes a number of improvements to the Windows Ink Workspace, and also to the address bar in registry editor (PC).
Meanwhile, if you are not a member of the Windows Insider Program and you want to lay your hands on the new features then you will have to wait until Microsoft releases the final version of the software.
The company has earlier announced Windows 10 Creators Update would be available as a free software update early next year.
