Today, Microsoft released the second public version of Windows 10X Emulator. And it’s particularly interesting that the new version doesn’t need to be run on a PC that’s part of the Windows Insider project. This means that you can install it on your everyday device without compromising system stability.
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.
