Microsoft works to add graphical calculator functionality to the Windows Calculator app in Windows 10. The company opened the app earlier this month and is now the most popular GitHub project this month.
of the features that Microsoft will build for Windows Calculator is an open graphics mode that first noticed ZDNet. The new graphics mode is built for use in schools and students, so they can quickly plot the equations using the built-in Windows calculator. The function will work very much like how you can convert the equations into charts into OneNote.
The feature is actually under development for a long time. "We are doing various forms of prototyping, and then doing the initial work on that for about a year," says a Microsoft engineer at GitHub. The company also shared a list of features that the new graphics mode will provide, including the ability to input several equations and compare different graphics as well as advanced export capabilities:
- Users can enter an equation so that they can be viewed of
- Users can introduce several equations so they can compare the graphs to each other and see the interactions between the rows.
- Users can edit equations to see how changes affect the plot and correct errors. Users can change the graph view window so that they can see different parts of the plot at different levels of detail.
- Users can change the line preview options so that they can clearly distinguish several plots. so they can share it with others or join Office / Teams.
- Users can easily manipulate secondary variables in the equations so they can quickly understand how the changes affect the equations
- Users can see traceable KGF as nodes / equation points and call others KGF in a list so that they can better understand the important features of a feature.
- track plots so they can better understand the relationship between the variables in the graph equation.
Of course, building such a sophisticated function into what must be a simple calculator can significantly affect the code of the application. But it seems Microsoft will not build the graphics engine for the new graphics mode – and instead will use a graphics engine built by an unfamiliar third party to power the feature. "We do not develop the graphics engine ourselves.
Graphical mode in the Windows calculator will probably take months before it is sent to Windows 10, so you'll have to wait a while for it. , We will take care to let you know when the feature is actually usable.
