The Continuum Mode lets you plug the phone into a special adapter and allows you to connect it to your desktop monitor which allows your phone to be used like a regular PC. It is like you are looking at a bigger version of your phone.
There are some limitations, though; in order to use the Continuum Mode, you need to buy one of the Microsoft’s $100 adapters. Also, if you want to use any app, it should be a universal Windows 10 app.
