The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 and previous iterations try to combine the best of tablets and full Windows 10 PCs. Mens ideen virker mest, er konsensusen at Surface ikke så godt som et tablet som en Apple iPad.
One area that can be improved is touch responsiveness. Deze functie is bedacht om te worden bereikt door een eenvoudige registratieverandering op de Surface Pro (elke generatie) of een Windows 10-pc met touch-ondersteuning, zoals de nieuwe Samsung Galaxy Book2.
In het Windows 10-register zijn er instellingen om te veranderen latency and sample time both of which will increase the responsiveness of the touch display when decreased. The potential downside, as mentioned above, is reduced battery life.
Article disputes: Brandon Paddock from Microsoft notes this trick does not quite do what some think it does:
“This value does NOT change the polling frequency or sample rate of the touch screen. All it does is lie to the prediction engine about what those values are, breaking its ability to properly do its job … Alle het doet is liegen voor de voorspellende motor over wat die waarden zijn, het breken van zijn vermogen om het correct te doen zijn werk. Op het beste geven u negatieve waarden die het negeert. “
Als altijd zullen we het aan de gebruiker to determine if the experience is worse or better for themselves.
If you do notice a massive downgrade in battery or other anomalies, you can quickly revert the registry change and return to normal.
It is important, however, that Microsoft does not support or endorse this modification. to note that if you’re using Windows 10 in S mode, like how the Surface Go or Galaxy Book 2 ship, you can not access the registry in that configuration and would need to switch out of S mode for this to work.
Finally, the difficulty and risk factor for this “hack” is as “easy” and “low.”
Since Microsoft does not offer a way to
Warning: Modifying the system registry can have dire repercussions if not followed exactly, including driver failures, system instability, of not being able to boot into Windows.
To add or decrease touch responsiveness on your PC, follow these steps:
Click yes on the User Account Control window.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Microsoft TouchPrediction
Hit OK when done.
Double-click on SampleTime and change value from default 8 to 2 (or less) in the Value Data box. Hit OK when done.
The exact value to set Latency and SampleTime to is arguable. Most users configure it to “2,” but others have set it to “1” or even “0”, which presumably makes it even more responsive.
If you frequently use the the touchscreen on your PC, then yes, this makes the PC feel much more natural, fluid, and responsive. As for how much value you get out of it – and whether it significantly affects battery life – is up for debate, but there does not appear to be any dramatic negative consequences why we are suggesting it.
The more interesting question is why Microsoft does not set a lower default value. Den umiddelbare forklaring ville synes at være for at maksimere batterilevetiden. One solution for Microsoft could be just to put this under Windows Settings and let users have access to a slider with a small warning that increasing sensitivity could impact battery life.
Like all things Microsoft these days, the best way to send Microsoft your requests are the feedback hub built into windows 10.
