Windows 10 has a feature that changes the traditional Windows 7 like desktop and start button into a more tablet friendly mode. Continuum is primarily used in Windows 2 in 1, sometimes called Convertible devices in which the keyboard can be detached from the screen.
- the START button changes to a full screen tiled mode, much like Windows 8
- most programs start in full screen mode rather than a windowed mode
Continuum is the name Microsoft has given to the function that automatically swaps these two interfaces.
