Continuum improvements introduced with Windows mobile build 15235
Windows 10 Mobile finally picks up a new feature
Microsoft hasn’t really given up on mobile. The company is releasing a new Preview build for Insiders on the Fast Ring. Windows 10 Mobile build 15235 brings the ability to switch to portrait mode orientation in Continuum.
Prior build 15235, Continuum only supported landscape rendering, so the feature was useless on a vertical-mounted monitor. To enable the portrait mode for Continuum, you go to Settings → System-> Display. There is a new option in the menu called ‘Display Orientation’ for connected display. You can select Portrait and press apply.
If your phone is connected to a monitor via cable, your phone will ask you to disconnect and reconnect the cable to the external display and press ok to change the orientation to portrait. If your phone is connected to a monitor via Wi-Fi, your phone will ask you to disconnect and reconnect to your wireless display. Once this is done, your phone will remember the orientation and you will not have to repeat the setup process when connecting again to the same monitor.
In addition to the Continuum improvements mentioned above, Microsoft has fixed several bugs in this build, and also improved the performance.
Contrary to the previous information that new features won’t be added to Windows 10 Mobile, the company may be rolling out some other things in the coming weeks.
