Contacts What this feature does If you use the People app or a supported third-party app to manage your contacts, you can choose to share specific contacts with other apps on your PC, display contact info in a contact card, or share specific contact info with other apps on your PC to perform an action, such as making a call or mapping an address.

Manufacturers are scrambling to create mobile devices that can run Microsoft Windows with the touch of a finger, without the need for a keyboard and mouse. Even Microsoft has released their very own Surface brand to satisfy this need to run Windows in a mobile world.
This is all fine and dandy if you are building Windows Store applications that run on any version of Windows 8, and are built with touch as a first class citizen.
Windows Store apps integrate perfectly with the device, such as automatically showing the Windows 8 touch keyboard when giving focus to an input element in the application.
Windows Store apps are smart enough to know when I am not using a mouse and keyboard, and I give focus to a TextBox by touching it, it will show the touch keyboard to allow me to input data.
On the other hand, if I am using a mouse and keyboard, and I give focus to the TextBox by clicking it with the mouse, the touch keyboard does not show, but rather I use the keyboard to enter my data. This is a nice feature built into the platform. This means, that if you are a desktop developer and want your WPF applications to work in this new mobile world, you need to make your WPF apps more touch accessible.
Specifically, when dealing with running your WPF application on a Windows 8 Pro tablet, without the need for a mouse and keyboard. Unfortunately, this is not as easy as we would like. This means, that if a user loads your awesome WPF application onto their Surface Pro 2, and touches a input control, they have no way of entering data into that control.
In order to enter any type of data into your WPF input controls, they would have to manually open the touch keyboard by tapping on the keyboard icon located in the taskbar.
Sure this works, but it is not the ideal experience. Well, you can, and I am going to show you how. The first thing we have to do is disable inking in the WPF application.What a difference a year makes. Last summer, Microsoft rolled out WIndows 10, a new system that was designed to both make up for the mistakes of the past -- cough, Windows 8 -- and move the PC.
Office Lens is an app for all of your Windows devices. It's a great way to capture notes and info from whiteboards, menus, signs or anything with a lot of text--and even images without text. Hello Windows Insiders!
