Windows 11 will let you wake your device just by touching it

Windows 11 wake on touch

Instead of reaching for your power button every time you want
to wake up a Windows device, you can soon simply tap the screen
a few times instead. According to a new leak, turning the
screen on could become even faster and more intuitive than it
is now when Windows 11 debuts.

With Windows 11, Microsoft is introducing support for “Wake on
Touch”, a feature that was previously offered on Windows Phones

Windows 11 appears to include support for a setting that will
let you toggle the “Wake on Touch” feature on and off.
References to “Wake on Touch” have been found in the leaked
build of the next-generation Windows, but currently, there
doesn’t appear to be any way to access it through Settings.

Although the feature hasn’t made it in to the leaked preview
build it has been spied in the system files. Based on the
leaked build, it looks like users will be able to wake their
device from sleep by tapping on the screen a few times. It’s
possible that it will require special hardware and it could
officially debut with the
Surface Pro 8 lineup in October.

It’s also worth pointing out that it’s a feature that’s clearly
inspired by Windows Phones and it’s a good idea so we’re happy
to see it make its way to PCs.

As to which PCs specifically will support it that’s less clear,
but it’s possible that it will require special sensors, which
hopefully means most Surface products and upcoming devices will
support it, but that remains to be seen.

Other improvements coming to Windows

In addition to this feature, Microsoft is also working on new
multitasking features for Windows.

Windows 10 currently allows two or more apps to be snapped
together side-by-side, but
Windows 11 will introduce support for a new snapping
feature that will help you work with multiple snap-based
apps. Likewise, Microsoft is also believed to be working on
gestures for tablet and touchpad users as part of the new
“gestures layer”.

Microsoft is currently planning to announce Windows 11 on June
24 and more details will be shared in the coming days.
