Microsoft is bringing a popular Apple iOS feature to Windows 10 that allows you to control your cursor by pressing and holding the spacebar while moving your finger.

Since iOS 12, you can hold and press the spacebar and then move your finger around to control the text input cursor, as shown in the video below.

With the release of Windows 10 preview build 20206, Microsoft has introduced this same feature to its touch keyboard.

Microsoft stated that changing the cursor position using the touch keyboard was a desired feature by many Windows users.

"All you need to do is place a finger on the space bar and slide your finger left, right, up, or down. As your finger moves, so will the cursor one character or line at a time," Microsoft announced in their preview build release notes.

While useful for those who use Windows 10 in tablet mode, it will become even more helpful when Windows 10 X is released for mobile devices such as 2-1 laptops and the Surface Neo.
