Windows 10 users thrilled about all the new updates have a new reason to rejoice: the latest Windows 10 build incorporates a lot of different utility features, all of them playing an important role in improving the overall experience.

The latest Fall Creators Update build brings with it new implementations such as the brand new curve-flick input. Here are some more details on the new curve-flick feature:

Curve-flick input on PC

Users that also have Windows 10 Mobile on their smartphones are probably a bit more familiar with this feature than those who use other mobile operating systems. Since the feature was first introduced and was already available on mobile, the former category might find this new feature concept easier to grasp.

Using the one-handed Japanese keyboard has never been easier

The new curve-flick feature is available for the one-handed Japanese keyboard on Windows 10 and its role is to simplify the usage of Japanese Kana. Now, users will be able to input Japanese Kana on PC just as easily as they do on mobile.

New and improved

Just because the feature was already available on mobile doesn’t mean that Microsoft has just ported it over without any further adjustments and improvements. For starters, it has made it a lot easier to use through little tweaks such as unlocking options and not needing to hold down the Move icon in order to move the touchscreen keyboard.

Additionally, it’s been made a lot easier to access and use settings along with switch between capitalizations (Now as easy as pressing the Shift key to toggle through the various options).

The new curve-flick input feature will bring a lot of dynamic improvement to Windows 10 for PC and the prime beneficiary is, of course, the user. That being said, it will be interesting to see just how much use the community will make of these new implementations.
