  • Publication number: 20190087246
    Abstract: An operating system provides an extensible share action to broker content sharing between applications executing on a computing platform such as a personal computer, tablet computer, or smartphone. The share action enables a consistent user experience for content sharing to be implemented across all applications and eliminates users having to switch from the current application they are using to some other functionality in order to share content. Applications can participate with the operating system share action as source applications and/or target applications. Source applications may describe what content is shareable given the current state of their application when the user chooses to invoke the share action. Target applications can be configured to receive the shared content from the source application according to content type, and will expose a companion view of their application to the user that is specifically tailored to facilitate sharing.

  • Publication number: 20180314709
    Abstract: A file access request is received from an application. One or more file types for the file access request are identified, and one or more file hosts supporting files of the identified one or more file types are also identified. A user interface is displayed, the user interface including a hosted area. Within the hosted area, at least one of the one or more file hosts displays a portion of the user interface identifying one or more files of at least one file host that can be selected for retrieval, or one or more locations that can be selected to which the one or more files are saved.

  • Patent number: 9606702
    Abstract: A region menu is used to easily access menu items. Generally, the region menu includes a number of regions with associated menus that are located close to an initial mouse position from where the region menu is evoked. Hovering over any of the regions of the region menu displays the menu item that is associated with the region. Additionally, hovering over a menu item within one of the regions of the displayed region menu may activate a live preview showing a projected result of what would occur should that menu item be selected. During a live preview, a portion of the region menu becomes translucent such that content beneath the menu becomes visible.

  • Publication number: 20160350672
    Abstract: Evaluations of a document are generated that indicate likelihoods of the document achieving its objectives. The evaluations are based on predictive characteristics of one or more outcomes of the client document that are indicative of whether the document will achieve its objectives. Specifically, a server receives the document from a client device. The server extracts a set of features from the document. The evaluations of the document are generated based on the predictive characteristics for the one or more outcomes of the document. The generated evaluations are provided to the client device such that the document can be optimized to achieve its desired objectives. The optimized document may also be sent to a posting server for posting to a computer network. The known outcomes of the optimized document are collected through reader responses to the document and analyzed to improve evaluations for other documents.

  • Publication number: 20130298051
    Abstract: Collection user interface techniques are described. In one or more implementations, a plurality of inputs are recognized as gestures received via interaction with a user interface to navigate through a file system of a computing device and select representations of objects managed by file system of the computing device, at least two of which are accessible via different devices. In response, copies of the representations are displayed by the computing device in a collection portion of the user interface. An option is output in conjunction with the collection portion by the computing device that is selectable to initiate a command to be performed using the objects that have corresponding representations included in the collection portion.
