Microsoft Delivers Insider Build 14965 with New Virtual Touchpad Feature

Microsoft today is delivering a new build for Windows Insiders. Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14965 for Mobile and PC to Windows Insiders is available in the Fast ring. Windows Insider chief, Dona Sarkar teased this update just a couple hours before release on Twitter. Can you find it?

New enhancements are available for Sticky Notes, Windows Ink Workspace, Address Bar in Registry Editor, and Hyper-V VM, but a new feature called Virtual Touchpad seeks to help tablet users control second screens easier…

Controlling external monitors from tablets just got easier (PC): You can now drive content on a second display from your tablet without ever having to attach a mouse. The virtual touchpad lets you do more with a tablet and a second screen – just connect to another monitor, PC, or TV, go to Action Center and tap on the “Project” Quick Action to extend your screen. Use it just like you would a physical touchpad to control content on the connected screen. To enable it, press and hold on the taskbar and select “Show touchpad button”. A touchpad icon will now appear in the notification area (just like Windows Ink Workspace does), and tapping on it will bring it up the virtual touchpad.
