What’s New in Windows 11 version 22H2: Gestures

22H2 Gestures Windows 11

Microsoft has included a new set of multi-touch gestures to Windows 11 version 22H2 to enhance tablet users’ experience.

However, I don’t believe this update has made any alterations to the multitouch motions that use the touchpad.

In terms of new multitouch gestures, here are some examples:

Toggle the Start button. By swiping up from the taskbar, you may access the Start menu. To turn it off, simply swipe down on the Start button.

In the Start menu, show all apps. Swipe left on the Pinned area of the Start menu to reveal All Apps. The default Start menu view can be returned by swiping left from the app list in All Apps.

Start by displaying the recommended options. Once you have the Start menu open, swipe to the left on the Recommended area to see the entire list of recommended apps. Swipe left from the Recommended view to returning to the standard Start menu layout.

toggle Quick Settings. Swipe up from the bottom-right corner of the screen to open Quick Settings. Swipe down on Quick Settings to dismiss it.

Tip: The Quick Settings and Notifications/Calendar interfaces now follow your finger as it slides in from the right screen edge, rather than appearing suddenly as they did before.

Revert back to the previous application. Switching between apps by swiping with three fingers.

Snap Layouts, a new feature. When you move a window, a new Snap Layouts pane is displayed at the top of the screen. Using touch, you can simply drag the window up to reveal a menu with all of the different layouts that are available for selection.
