  2. Multi window tasking in windows phone

    Hello Souvik,

    Currently, multi-window tasking feature that you're looking for isn't available. However, that would be a great feature to have on our Windows 10 Mobile platform. We suggest that you request this feature on our Windows Feedback Hub app. To submit
    a feedback, you can follow the steps below:

    1. Go to All Apps, search for the Feedback
      Hub app or press and hold Volume Down+Power button for about 2-3 seconds to launch the app.
    2. Open the menu icon at the top left side.
    3. Select Feedback, then at the top right side, tap the
      button (+).
    4. Select Suggestion and fill up the box with the details needed.
    5. Select the right category for the suggestion and then submit.

    Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.

  3. [IDEA] Multi-tasking "APP"

    Hello, I hope MS would take notice about my idea. This is something I come up recently.


    Multi-tasking is evil, as you can see; a number of virus/spyware can be downloaded from competitor's marketplace. Certainly the app store should be more vigorous about validating those things, but, the fact remains, multi-tasking is the sole feature that
    enables apps like spyware or Trojan or virus sending text messages periodically. From the case of WinPh7, WinPh7 only allows single 3rd party app to run to avoid suck problem. From the recent video of MANGO update, WinPh seems to be still safe as it is still
    single tasking for 3rd party apps. After mango, it is just much easier to get back to the app you closed/dehydrated, but, they are still single-tasking.


    Eventually WinPh7 will support multi-tasking. No doubt about it. Because you cannot run apps like Last.FM while doing other stuff, which is very limited. Such limitation will lower the competitiveness as some of the apps requires multi-tasking to have a
    desired experience.

    My Idea:

    Introducing Multi-tasking "APP". It is an internal system app, similar to Email/Message.

    • Just like the Email/Message. apps, this app will also show counter on both LiveTile and LockScreen. The counter described the number of 3rd party apps are running concurrently IN the "multi-tasking app".

    • Why do I capitalize IN? Because all 3rd party apps by default, are NOT running in "multi-tasking app". Meaning by default, everything ran in single-tasking.

    • Multi-tasking app is disabled by default.

    • To enable multi-tasking app, you need to launch it in the app list and accept the prompt to PIN it to the main hub. This is important because it is required to make sure the user will see the counter on their main hub (not only the lockscreen).

    • To disable multi-tasking app, just UNPIN the app

    • To add your currently running 3rd party app into multi-tasking app, HOLD back button and an additional button will be shown in the MANGO hold-back GUI (IFF multi-tasking app is enabled).

    • As you can see, to let the 3rd party app running in multi-tasking app is an explicit action

    • multi-tasking app's list is always empty after OS reboot. Meaning no startup apps.

    • You have to always manually include your 3rd party into multi-tasking app when you reboot WinPh.

    • To manage the running apps in multi-tasking app, launch the multi-tasking app GUI to remove single/all running apps from the list. (They turn back to default setting, thus, they will be dehydrated).

    • After removal, they are dehydrated and not running and not using battery. You can still continue your app by rehydrate the app as usual.

    • 3rd party developer can NEVER ask user to add itself into the multi-tasking app. (No code change either. This is managed by OS. No extra API to enable multi-tasking because it has nothing to do with developers.)

    Hope this is clear.

    My idea enables explicit multi-tasking feature for the 3rd party apps. No change in API, so no work for devs. No worries by users because it is explicitly voluntary by the user (no pop-up which most people would press YES). Will always shown the counter
    on main hub and lockscreen to inform the user.

    Problem with Windows multi-tasking

    Suggestions for multi-tasking laptop

    Good day. I need some help picking out a new laptop and was wondering if I could get some suggestions from the members here.

    The laptop will be for personal and business use and needs to be able to run multiple applications simultaneously with ease. It also has to have a Windows OS. As far as budget, I'm undecided, but I'm prepared to spend over $1,500. If you could, maybe suggest a low end laptop around $1,500 and another slightly better machine around the $2,000-$2,200 mark.

    To give you an idea of what the machine will be handling on a daily basis, listed below are the applications I currently have running and usually have running at all times.

    --Google Chrome with 7 tabs open (blogs/forums)
    --Photoshop CS4 with 3 files open, the largest being a 2550x3300 pixel, 35MB file
    --Microsoft Word
    --FilaZilla Cilent

    In an effort to help you better select a laptop for my needs, I've included a link below to a screenshot of my task manager so you can see how much memory these applications are using.

    ImageShack - Best place for all of your image hosting and image sharing needs

    Any suggestions would be great. Thanks for your help in advance.
