Windows 10 offers new trackpad gestures and multi-screen enhancements

Neowin writes Microsoft showed off a couple of new trackpad gestures that will be supported by Windows 10. The site says Joe Belfiore showed off the following gestures at the company's TechEd Europe 2014 conference:
  • Minimize all open windows by swiping down with three fingers
  • Re-maximize all windows by swiping up with three fingers
  • When windows are already open on the desktop, swipe up with three fingers to launch Task View, to easily view virtual desktops and open apps
  • Swipe three fingers left or right to switch between open apps
  • Most of these gestures are very similar to those found on Apple's OS X and the new Task View also borrows heasily from OS X's task switcher.

    Microsoft also previewed some enhancements for multi-monitor setups:
    He then showed how dragging a window to the center edge between two monitors set up side-by-side brings up new visual Snap prompts. You only need to hover the window near to the edge of the display before Windows 10 will signal the ability to simply Snap the window against that edge. In Windows 8.1, Snapping windows doesn't work when you drag a window to the edge of a monitor with a desktop that spills over onto another display.
    Both new features are expected to be part of the next Windows 10 Technical Preview build.
