Given how many different “modes” that Windows 10 is due to come in, tablet, desktop and mobile for example, finding the right balance in design is essential to ensure functionality. What this translates to is a series of little touches, inherent to each mode, that make them as unique as they are useful, though within reasonable boundaries.
Tablet mode in Windows 10 is case in point, and the Windows Insiders have once again made their voices heard regarding this particular issue, an ‘auto-hide’ option for the task bar. User “Mark” writes,
“when we chose ‘Tablet mode’ the Taskbar should go to ‘Auto-Hide option’ automaticly [sic] and we can call it with a simple swipe up from the bottom of the screen”
Up-voted by 2,131 Insiders at the time of writing, it is certainly a popular request. And if granted, it could make multi-tasking while in tablet mode on Windows 10 a little easier than it currently is, such as when running multiple instances of the same program.
