Windows 10X is a new version of Windows 10 built specifically for foldable devices, whether dual or single screen.
It is based on the modern version of Windows 10, which inherited its basic features. This means that almost everything has been rebuilt with modern technologies, while maintaining the support of old-fashioned applications, for those who need it.
Windows 10X has a new user interface that can be customized depending on the "location" of your device. And the reason is that on a foldable computer, the user may want to use it in different ways. As a laptop or tablet or in tent mode for movies. So the user interface should be adjusted accordingly to provide the best view, regardless of how your device is used.
You can try Windows 10X using Microsoft Emulator and a preview version of Windows 10X. It should be noted that this is a project in development and that the preview versions are designed primarily for developers who want to ensure the compatibility of their applications. This may cause errors and other issues.
