With the Microsoft Store, Microsoft today released a simulated image of Windows 10X for developers who want to test the new system while updating Microsoft Emulator. The app doesn’t have windows Insider members, and the average user automatically checks for available mirror updates the first time they run the new version.
The new Windows 10X Emulator image allows older Win32 applications to run in a windowed container. Microsoft explains: “The system-defined window layout ensures a consistent and simplified window experience tailored to small-screen, dual-screen, and touch-friendly devices. There are still some gaps between the new version and expectations, but will be further fixed in future updates. “
An “early” version of the File Manager app is also included in the new Windows 10X image, which displays OneDrive files when a Microsoft account is tied to the system. Features and known issues in the new version can be found on this page.
Windows 10X, a new operating system designed for dual-screen devices, will debut on Surface Neo later this year. Application developers can use Windows 10X to optimize their applications for dual-screen use, including Win32 applications.
