With Windows Blue, Microsoft is building in additional Snap Views, allowing users to place apps side-by-side in the Windows Blue view. The new 50/50 view is somewhat the same as the desktop mode snapping, but Windows Blue will also support up to four different snapped apps alongside each other. A new alarm, sound recorder, movie moments, as well as a brand new calculator WIndows 8 -style apps will also take advantage of these new views, but developers are able to update their apps to support the Windows Blue Snap Views and other API changes that come new in Windows Blue. The snapping improvements also apply to multi-screen support, where you can now run individual Windows 8-style apps across multiple monitors.

Withe the Windows Blue update Microsoft is also making changes to its Charms. The Devices Charm includes a new play option, which looks similar to the existing PlayTo options found in Windows 8. On the Share Charm there's a new screenshot option that lets you quickly share an image with applications. Internet Explorer 11 is also included in Blue, although it's not immediately clear from the leaked screenshots what improvements have been made. A tab sync feature appears in some screenshots, suggesting that Microsoft is planning to make tabs available on additional Windows Blue devices.
