Those longing for the touch-friendly days of Windows 8 might want to give TouchTasks a try.
When Microsoft moved from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, the company drastically changed tablet mode. Many still long for the fluid shortcuts and touch-centric design of Windows 8.1's tablet mode. Windows 10 works with touch, but it doesn't have the smooth shortcuts and gestures of its OS ancestor. In comes TouchTasks, a piece of software from Stardock designed to bring touch shortcuts to Windows. The concept is excellent, and I think Stardock could make it into a great piece of software with some tweaks and updates, but in its current state, it falls short.
Awkward touch targets that can be hard to find, making TouchTasks challenging to use. Additionally, Windows 10 and TouchTasks often compete for the same spots on your screen, making specific tasks difficult or nearly impossible. That said, some parts of TouchTasks are worth building upon.
