For tablet PCs that come with no input devices other than a touchscreen, it’s now safe to say that Windows 10 was built with touch in mind. That is, instead of using a mouse or keyboard to manipulate Windows 10, you use your fingers to touch the screen in specific ways called gestures.

Here’s list of gestures that can be used
  • Tap: Use your finger (or the stylus) to touch the screen and then immediately release it. This is the touch equivalent of a mouse click.
  • Double-tap: Tap and release the screen twice, one tap right after the other. This is the touch equivalent of a mouse double-click.
  • Tap and hold: Tap the screen and leave your finger (or the stylus) resting on the screen until the shortcut menu appears. This is the touch equivalent of a mouse right-click.
  • Swipe: Quickly and briefly run your finger along the screen. This usually causes the screen to scroll in the direction of the swipe, so it’s roughly equivalent to scrolling with the mouse wheel.
You also use the swipe to display some of the Windows 10 interface elements: Swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen to display the task-bar, swipe right from the left edge to open Task View, and so on.
  • Slide: Place your finger on the screen, move your finger, and then release. This is the touch equivalent of a mouse click and drag, so you usually use this technique to move an object from one place to another. However, this is also ideal for scrolling, so you can scroll an app vertically by sliding your finger up and down on the screen, or horizontally by sliding your finger right and left on the screen, making this technique the touch equivalent of clicking and dragging the scroll box.
  • Pinch: Place two fingers apart on the screen and bring them closer together. This gesture zooms out on whatever is displayed on the screen, such as a photo.
  • Spread: Place two fingers close together on the screen and move them farther apart. This gesture zooms in on whatever is displayed on the screen, such as a photo.
  • Turn: Place two fingers on the screen and turn them clockwise or counterclockwise. This gesture rotates whatever is displayed on the screen, such as a photo.
