Microsoft recently introduced a compact, tablet-optimized taskbar for Windows 11 22H2 devices (which is still a hidden test feature), demonstrating its commitment to making Windows more touch-friendly.
Microsoft is currently testing a new touch mode for the Edge browser, with the goal of making the browser more optimized for touch devices like the Surface Pro. The new version of the browser will be available on the Windows Store.
All browser elements get slightly larger when the user turns on touch mode. According to the feature description, browser elements such as buttons and labels increase in size when opened. If you’re using the Edge browser on a 2-in-1 tablet, you can also select the “Automatic” option from the touch mode drop-down menu. Doing so will allow Edge to recognize if the user is using Windows by touch and provide a corresponding layout.
Microsoft is currently testing the touch mode feature in the Edge Canary channel. Specific users can make adjustments to make Edge more touch-friendly by navigating to Settings > Appearance > Touch.
