Microsoft provides users with Windows 10 device features to choose from family/games/creativity, etc.
Microsoft is testing the Device Usage function in the Windows 10 development version, which is a new independent setting item that Microsoft has added in the beta version.
In fact, the use of equipment has been provided in the out-of-the-box stage of OOBE. It used to be mainly for homes and businesses. Now Microsoft has expanded it to a number of different options.
For example, the current device positioning includes Gaming, Family, Creativity, Schoolwork, Entertainment, and Business. Users can reset this function after entering the system.
As for the purpose of providing these functions? Can switching between different device locations improve performance? In fact, this function is not used to improve performance.
According to the speculation of the media, the purpose of using the function of the device may be pre-installed with different software. For example, after the modification to the game positioning, Microsoft recommends more game applications.
After being modified to Schoolwork, it may be recommended that more applications are suitable for student learning. On the other hand, Microsoft has different tips for devices with different positioning.
For example, Microsoft often pops up various boot prompts in Windows 10. This is the responsibility of the Tips application. In the stable version, all the boot prompts are the same.
In the future, Microsoft may use this feature to pop up different boot prompts for different devices to help users better use Windows 10 to complete their work.
Of course, these are only current guesses, because, in terms of actual functions, there is no actual change in device function switching, so we can only wait for Microsoft to continue to develop.
