The freshly minted Windows 10 consists of a laundry list of revolutionary features, and Continuum is certainly one of the most incredible of them. Windows 10 runs on a diverse range of devices, and Continuum enables its UI to automatically adapt itself according to the input/output hardware method used on the device.

Part of Continuum is the Tablet Mode, which as the name suggests, optimizes the Windows 10 UI for touch based input, making changes such as disabling title-bars and increasing spacing between icons.
