Windows 10 to get new touchpad gesture tweaks

The Tech Report found out Microsoft is preparing some gesture tweaks for Windows 10, the new operating system will introduce some new touchpad gestures and will change some of the edge-based touchscreen swipes from Windows 8.
Three-finger taps will launch Microsoft's Cortana virtual assistant, while four-finger ones will fire up the Action Center. Swiping with three fingers is reserved for multitasking. Horizontal swipes will switch between active apps, much like alt+tabbing. Vertical swipes will clear the desktop or invoke Task View, a grid-based depiction of current applications.

Edge-based touchscreen gestures have also been adjusted. Swiping from the left edge will bring up Task View, while swiping from the right will launch the Action Center. Charms begone! A new, tablet-oriented taskbar will be accessible by swiping up from the bottom edge. Swiping down from the top will display the title bar, and continuing that downward motion will close the app.
