    Microsoft patent could make foldable Windows 10 devices usable


    A number of Microsoft patents have shown off the foldable phone and PC designs from the company. Today, yet another Microsoft’s foldable device patent has emerged online and unlike other patents, the latest one is all about the single or multiple GUI-based display modes.

    Spotted by us, the patent titled “SELECTIVELY DISPLAYABLE MULTIPLE DISPLAY MODE FOR A GUI” was filed by Redmond-based Microsoft in 2018 and published by USPTO on July 11, 2019.

    In the background of Microsoft’s patent, they wrote that computing devices with multiple displays can render programs and media contents across a broader display area (both of the displays). However, the device may fail to maintain the quality of the content when it is unfolded and it could result in a discontinuous appearance.

    Microsoft says apps may lack awareness of text breaks and other features of how the program is displayed on a dual-screen device. Another example is broken toolbars or panels in apps such as image editor or video editor. Similarly, gaming is also difficult as the seam between the displays may obscure or break up relevant content, resulting in a deterioration of the gaming experience.

    Microsoft’s patent application proposes a new method to address the above quality issues on a dual-screen device:

    “While the hinged mobile computing device is depicted with the primary and secondary displays in a side-by-side orientation, it will be appreciated that other suitable arrangements, such as a top-to-bottom orientation, may be used to display the GUI in the multiple display mode,” the patent description reads.

    “As discussed above, when displaying the GUI in the multiple display mode, the primary view on the primary display may include all or a subset of the content of the launch window of the GUI, i.e., the main content of the GUI, and the secondary view on the secondary display may include a subset or none of the content of the launch window of the GUI, i.e., relevant information related to the main content. Typically, the main content and relevant information are different from each other, and also each is different in a respect from the originally presented content in the launch window for the application program. The main content and relevant information may alternatively be referred to as first content and second content,” Microsoft noted in the patent description.

    Microsoft Selects Dolby Audio for Windows 10

    it would've been great if microsoft added HEVC decoders, LAV filters along with other codecs with Windows 10, and developing WMP to be better than VLC, KMPlayer and such sorts of media players.

    Nevertheless, this is good step for microsoft, by far.
