  • Publication number: 20120081322
    Abstract: Embodiments are described for handling focus when a gesture is input in a multi-screen device. In embodiments, a first image displayed on a first touch sensitive display of a first screen may be currently in focus. In embodiments, the gesture is a tap on a second touch sensitive display of the device. In response to the gesture, an application is launched, which displays a second image on a second display of a second screen. Focus is then changed from the first image on the first touch sensitive display to the second image on the second touch sensitive display.

  • Publication number: 20120081318
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provides for displaying a desktop for a multi-screen device in response to opening the device. The window stack can change based on the change in the orientation of the device. The system can receive an orientation change that transitions the device from a closed state to an open state. A previously created in the stack can expand over the area of the two or more displays comprising the device when opened. A desktop expands to fill the display area and be displayed on the second of the displays after the device is opened.

  • Publication number: 20200348800
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provides for changing a window stack for a multi-screen device. The window stack can change based on the movement of a window. The system can receive a gesture indicating a change in the position of a window in the device. Upon receiving the gesture, the system determines a new position in the window stack for the moved window. Then, the system can determine a display associated with the moved window and change the logic data structure associated with the moved window to describe the new position of the moved window in the window stack.
