Microsoft Continuum

Continuum turns your phone into a big-screen projector and a big-time productivity tool. Get real work done on the go with a device that fits in your pocket. Simply connect a mouse or keyboard for an experience like a PC, while still keeping the use of your phone.

Or you can connect wirelessly by using a dongle that is compatible with continuum to project wirelessly from your phone.

You  can use Microsoft continuum on your windows phone and control what you would like to show on the screen just from your smartphone.

How to use Continuum: What is it? 

Continuum is a way for Windows to detect the hardware you are using and ensure that you always have the optimum interface on your machine. If you are using a desktop with no touchscreen, then Windows will now know this and present the traditional mouse and keyboard interface that works best on that setup. For those with a hybrid device, such as the Surface Pro 3, Continuum will monitor whether a keyboard is attached or not and provide either a tablet or touchscreen laptop interface. If you then remove the keyboard this will be detected and the interface adjusted accordingly by the system, and vice versa. It’s simple and keeps out of the way, just like good software should. 

How to use Continuum in Windows 10

As Continuum comes built in to all versions of Windows 10 there isn’t much to do in terms of setup. If you have a traditional desktop or laptop your system will always use the same interface. For owners of tablets and hybrid devices there are options for controlling how your device responds to a change of hardware, such as removing or adding a keyboard.

In Windows 10 when you remove a keyboard, for example, the system will pop up a dialog box asking if you want to enter tablet mode. Tapping this will then adjust the interface. Of course the reverse is true when you reattach the keyboard. Rather than be prompted every time, you can select an automatic response so that Windows knows what you want it to do.
