Here’s what you need to know about Windows 11 touch gestures

Incoming features in the latest version of Windows 11 for developers include a range of new touchscreen gestures, not unlike the ones we already use on smartphones.

These new touch gestures should make navigation within the operating system easier. For example the Windows The start menu can be displayed by simply swiping your finger from the bottom to the top of the screen. Swiping in the other direction will close it.

In the Start menu, navigate by swiping right or left between the user’s pinned applications and all apps.

The same goes for scrolling through recommendations. To display the Quick Settings menu, simply swipe your finger from the lower-right corner of the taskbar, then swipe down to close it. The Notification Center opens and closes from the right edge of the screen.

Note that all these gestures are systematically reversed in right-to-left languages.

These new touch gestures are intended to be highly intuitive, largely echoing everyday smartphone use. As such, the new gestures should feel relatively familiar to touchscreen PC users.

How to Change Your Snapchat Username

Good news if you’ve outgrown your Snapchat username, because you’ll be able to change it soon. Snapchat is finally giving in to one of the most requested options from its users: the ability to change their username. This is how it works.

Have things moved on since you picked your Snapchat username? No problem, because the social network is finally letting users change their username without losing their account. Evan Spiegel’s platform has announced the rollout of this option starting February 23, giving Snapchat users the chance to choose a new username while keeping all their settings.

This change will not affect a user’s Snap Score, Snap Code, Contacts, or Memories i.e. older content. Only their username will be changed. This feature will be available on both the iOS application and Android.

While this option is good news for users who are tired of their current username, keep in mind that Snapchat only allows one change per year. Likewise, Snapchatters cannot choose a username that has already been used by themselves or another member, making old usernames unrecoverable. A way to prevent possible misuse or abuse on the platform.

Follow these steps to access this option:

  1. Click the Bitmoji icon to access your profile
  2. Click the gear icon to go to settings
  3. Select ‘Username’ and then ‘Change username’, written in blue
  4. Enter your new username and then click “Next” to complete the change
