Hands-on with Windows 10 Continuum during Ignite 2015 (video)

Continuum is the notion that one computing experience is continued regardless of the device used or the location. It allows for a consistent user interface, a familiar style of operation for the user to become accustomed to. This is a new feature set to arrive with Windows 10.

“Continuum is about being able to transform your use of a device into mobile scenarios that give up no compromises in your use of input device or screen size,” Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore said during his keynote presentation at Ignite 2015. As you will see in the hands-on demonstration in the video embedded below, Continuum is actually really neat. Unplugging the keyboard from your Surface Pro 3 will prompt you to enter tablet mode, which is where Continuum shines.

As demonstrated on an 8-inch Lenovo Windows tablet, Continuum offers a nice user interface, complete with a hamburger button at the top left of the screen, which offers an elegant Start Menu when pressed. Docking the tablet and having it connected to a larger screen, you can utilize the device as if it were a full-screen PC.

Connecting a Windows 10 mobile device to a larger screen allows you to utilize your phone as a PC. How cool is that? Continuum offers a “natural, no compromise, and familiar” method to seamlessly switch between a smaller device to a bigger device, without hitting a speed bump in your productivity.
