  • Publication number: 20220221970
    Abstract: A system for modifying a user interface described herein can include a processor to detect a plurality of display screens electronically coupled to the system. The processor can also detect a first gesture corresponding to an application window displayed in one of the display screens and generate a preview panel in response to detecting the first gesture, the preview panel to be displayed proximate the application window, wherein the preview panel is to display a real-time image comprising content displayed in each of the display screens. Furthermore, the processor can detect a second gesture to move the application window to a different display screen modify the user interface to display the application window in the different display screen.

  • Patent number: 10073963
    Abstract: A method of storing data from a whiteboard application executed on a computing system including an interactive display device is provided. The method comprises storing, in a memory of the computing system, whiteboard data input to the whiteboard application in response to user interaction with the interactive display device, displaying a login selector on the interactive display device, upon detecting actuation of the login selector, identifying the user based on credentials of the user; and in response to identifying the user, (i) retrieving previews of stored whiteboard files from a user account in a cloud-based storage system corresponding to the identity of the user, (ii) displaying the previews on the interactive display device, and (iii) uploading the whiteboard data as a whiteboard file from the memory of the computing system to the user account.

  • Publication number: 20180203596
    Abstract: To address the issue of efficiently repositioning application windows, a computing system including a processor and a touch sensitive display is provided. The display may be configured to detect touch inputs from a digit or stylus, and the processor may be configured to recognize an invocation gesture, present a window repositioning preview interface for an application window, detect a preview gesture, display graphical preview of a window repositioning location in the window repositioning preview interface, receive a selection of the window repositioning location, dismiss the window repositioning preview interface, and reposition the application window to the selected window repositioning location.

  • Publication number: 20150331604
    Abstract: Systems and methods of presenting stored files in a whiteboard application executed on an interactive display are disclosed herein. One method may include executing the whiteboard application, and storing whiteboard input for an interaction session as a whiteboard file in memory of the interactive display device. The method may include receiving a request to browse stored whiteboard files, generating respective previews of the stored whiteboard files, and displaying the previews in an arrangement in a graphical user interface of the interactive display. The method may include receiving a selection input selecting a file of the stored whiteboard files via the interactive display, retrieving the selected file from the memory, and displaying the selected file on the interactive display. Finally, the method may include detecting that a second file has not been retrieved within a preset amount of time and deleting the second file from the memory.
