As a multi-platform operating system, Windows 10 operates equally well on PCs and tablets. And no matter the device, you can use both modes of the system. You can use a regular, Desktop mode on your Windows 10 tablet, as well as the Tablet mode on your Windows 10 PC (especially efficient on touch-screen laptops).

But in this post, we’re going to talk about the second one, Tablet mode, and all improvements it recently received with Windows 10 Preview build 14328. These improvements made the Tablet mode in Widows 10 even more touch-friendly and easier to navigate through.

Tablet mode improvements in Windows 10

The first change is the re-introduced All Apps section, which now appears in full screen. We remind you that All apps section in the public release,  as well as in the previous Preview builds appeared in the menu, on the left side of the screen. The full screen mode will certainly make the navigation through apps smoother and easier.

We noticed that Microsoft removed the classic All apps section from Windows 10’s Start Menu in the latest Preview release, so we can say that Microsoft just moved this section form the Start Menu to the Tablet Mode.

Another new feature of the revamped Tablet mode is the introduction of two buttons that allow you to switch between apps and Live tiles. This feature is a logical addition, since both sections (Live Tiles and All apps) are now in full screen, so users need an easy way to navigate through them.

And finally, there’s also an option to auto-hide the taskbar while in the Tablet mode. When you turn on this option, the tasbar will be hidden all the time, unless you drug the cursor to it. To enable the auto-hide taskbar option, go to Settings > System > Tablet Mode, and toggle Automatically hide the taskbar in Tablet mode.

Just like it’s the case with the redesigned Start Menu, the new looking tablet mode is also available to users of Windows 10 Insider Preview only, as we expect it to arrive to the general public with the Anniversary Update in July.

You can tell us in the comments, what do you think about the revamped Tablet mode in Windows 10 Preview?
