Microsoft has released the Build 19546 (or the new Windows 10 graphic mode calculator) to the users of the Insider Program. These Windows compilations usually come with minor new features, as many are released each year, but sometimes there are new breakthrough features, as has been the case with the latest trial version of Windows 10.
Microsoft has listened to the prayers that advanced users of graphing calculators have been saying for years, and is finally going to include these functions in the Windows 10 calculator. A calculator that, after becoming open source, has reached iOS, Android and even the web.
The graphic mode was most in demand at the Feedback Hub
For users who are wondering if making requests to Microsoft is any use, perhaps this calculator will serve as an answer. Microsoft says that adding the graph mode was one of the most requested features in the Feedback Hub, its request and suggestion channel. Microsoft has not specified whether it will release the graphics engine it uses in this version, and it is not open source at this time, as specified in GitHub.
The Calculator already had a scientific mode, but it was not a graphing calculator. Among the new features that will be added for users when the next stable version of Windows 10 arrives, which is expected to be released in April or May of this year, are the following:
- Display one or more equations on the graph. The Calculator allows you to view several equations at once and check plots and interactions. As you move the pointer over each point, the Calculator will display the value of the x and y function. On the right side of the window, the Calculator will provide much more information, such as domain, range, monotony, etc.
- Add functions with variables. The Calculator allows you to add equations with a second variable and allows you to manipulate the points to see how those changes affect their graphical representation.
- Analyze the graph and draw points with the keyboard and mouse to understand the relationship between the variables in the graph equation, with analysis of equations to identify elements such as the intersections between the x and y axes.
