The foldable PC screens are coming – but Windows 11 is not ready for them
Microsoft’s operating system is not ready for PCs with foldable screens.
Recently, PC manufacturers Lenovo and Asus announced new models with foldable screens. These are the ASUS ZenBook Fold 17 and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold 16.
This will be a problem for Microsoft’s new operating system Windows 11.
The operating system is not designed for products with a foldable screen, which means that the product developers have had to force the system into a box where it does not fit with the help of third-party modifications, writes Windows Central.
This happens because Windows 11 is not designed for the way that the screen is shared.
Therefore, it has to be modified before it works, which according to the medium leads to a result that is not exactly elegant.
The media also writes that the original Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold was launched with Windows 10 and that Lenovo used its own software to adapt Windows to the device’s settings, resulting in a slow experience with more bugs.
Among other things, problems with turning off one-half of the screen when folded are reported.
Microsoft has recently worked a lot on the tablet experience, which may prove favourable in relation to an adaptation to foldable PCs.
