Windows 10 Calculator app with Compact Overlay Mode


Windows 10 calculator app

Microsoft announced in March 2019 that it is open-sourcing the Windows 10 Calculator app on GitHub under MIT License which is packaged with Windows 10 so, that it will open to a lot of possibilities about how development for the app can move forward. Among the very first concepts that happened was the capability to graph equations with the app. However, while we’re still waiting on that to come, another helpful feature is making its way in the future.

Dave Grochocki, Microsoft’s Senior Program Manager, working on the Notepad and Windows Calculator announced on his Twitter that the user would soon be able to overlay the Windows 10 Calculator app and the micro-calculator on top of other Windows applications at all times. The feature works by including a button that triggers the Compact Overlay Mode. The calculator is resizable in the app, and the app will remember the size whichever is preferred by the user.

With the Creators Update a while back Microsoft introduced the Compact Overlay Mode Windows for Windows 10 applications. It’s usually utilized by apps that play video content such as Skype during a call or movies.
