<Embodiment 1>
FIG. 2 is a flowchart illustrating an example of file open processing by the tablet terminal. FIG. 3 is a diagram illustrating file opening when a file icon is flicked from left to right. FIG. 4 is a diagram showing file opening when the fill icon is double-clicked.

  First, before entering the process of FIG. 2, the user performs an operation of opening an application using the operation input unit 50. For example, an operation for opening an electronic mail application is performed. The operation determination unit 31 of the tablet terminal 10 determines the input operation instruction, and the processing control unit 32 of the control unit 30 recognizes the activation operation of the e-mail application by the user based on the operation determination, and the storage unit The application 41 is read from 40 and activated. Then, the display control unit 33 displays the e-mail application on the display unit 20.

  Next, as shown in FIG. 2, the user performs a touch operation on the icon indicating the file attached to the mail (step S1). As shown in FIG. 3A, an e-mail application display 71 is displayed on the screen of the display unit 20, and the user touches an icon 61 indicating a file with the hand 60 to perform an operation.

  Here, the file icon 61 is file-related information indicating a file. The icon 61 links to a file attached to an e-mail, but may be a URL indicating a lick destination other than that. A display operation is performed by touching file-related information indicating a file such as an icon or URL.

  The operation determination unit 31 determines the type of touch operation, but first determines whether or not it is a flick operation (step S2). If it is a flick, the operation determination part 31 will determine the flick direction (direction which moves the touched hand 60) (step S3). In FIG. 3A, it is determined that the flick is performed from left to right (arrow direction in the figure).

  Next, the process control unit 32 executes the process according to a predetermined operation process. Here, since the flick operation is performed on the file icon 61 that is the operation target, a file open process is performed. That is, the file at the link destination of the icon 61 is read from the storage unit 40 (step S4). The process control unit 32 sends operation determination information and file data to the display control unit 33.

  As shown in FIG. 3B, the display control unit 33 generates windows 72 and 73 by arranging the screens in two in the flick direction (moving direction) specified by the operation determination unit 31 (step S5). .

Here, a process in which the display control unit 33 divides the screen into two to generate a window will be described.
As shown in FIG. 3A, when the display screen has a size from coordinates (1, 1) to coordinates (1000, 1500), the windows 72 and 73 shown in FIG. Generate the coordinates of.

  Since the flick direction is from left to right, a window is generated so that the size of the screen in the X direction is divided into two. Accordingly, the window 72 is generated at a position from the coordinates (1, 1) to the coordinates (750, 1000). The window 73 is generated at a position from the coordinates (751, 1) to the coordinates (1000, 1500).

  Next, the display control unit 33 displays the screen of the e-mail application being displayed in the window 72 on the near side in the flick direction, and opens the file indicated by the touched icon 61 in the window 73 in the flick direction. (Step S6).

  In step S2, if the touch operation is not a flick, the operation determination unit 31 determines whether the touch operation is a double click (step S7). As shown in FIG. 4A, if it is a double click, the process control unit 32 reads the file indicated by the icon 61 in the data 42 of the storage unit 40 (step S8), and sends the data to the display control unit 33. send.

As shown in FIG. 4B, the display control unit 33 generates a window 74 so as to overlap the electronic mail display screen 71 displayed on the display unit 20 (step S9). That is, if the display screen has a size from coordinates (1,1) to coordinates (1000,1500), a window 74 from coordinates (1,1) to coordinates (1000,1500) of the same size is displayed. Generate.
The display control unit 33 opens and displays the file in the generated window 74 (step S10).

  In this way, when an operation involving movement such as flicking is performed on the file-related information to be operated, the screen is divided into two in the movement direction so that the windows do not overlap each other, and the original screen is displayed on each window. Since the file is displayed, the user can check the opened file and the original screen without performing an operation such as reducing or moving the window, thereby improving the operation efficiency. Further, since the window is generated at the tip of the flick direction, the user can form the window at a desired position. Furthermore, when an operation that does not involve movement such as double-clicking is performed, a window can be created so as to overlap the display screen, and a file can be opened there. Therefore, the user can select a display method depending on the operation type.

<Embodiment 2>
The above shows a case where the display screen is flicked from left to right. In the second embodiment, a case where the display screen is flicked from top to bottom will be described. FIG. 5 is a diagram showing a file open when the file icon is flicked downward.

  As shown in FIG. 5A, assume that the user flicks from top to bottom as the flick direction. The control unit 30 of the tablet terminal 10 generates windows arranged in the flick direction according to the flowchart of FIG. That is, as shown in FIG. 5B, the display control unit 33 generates the windows 75 and 76 so that the screen of the display panel 21 is vertically divided into two. An e-mail screen (original screen) is displayed in the upper window 75, and a file is opened and displayed in the lower window 76 of the movement destination.

  As described above, in step 2 of FIG. 2, the operation determination unit 31 determines which direction is the top, bottom, left, or right of the display unit 20. Generally, the display unit 20 has a rectangular shape, and determines which of the four sides of the outer shape is the direction. The moving direction to be determined can be arbitrarily set, and the moving direction of the operation is specified as the set direction, and a window is generated in this direction.

  As described above, the embodiments of the present invention have been described in detail with reference to the drawings. However, the specific configuration is not limited to these embodiments, and the invention may be changed in design without departing from the gist of the present invention. Is also included.

  In the present embodiment, the display screen is divided into two in the same size, but the sizes may be different. The size at that time can be arbitrarily set by the user. In the embodiment, the operation types are two types of flick and double click, but are not particularly limited thereto. It is only necessary to distinguish the generation of a window from an operation that involves movement such as flicking and an operation that does not involve movement such as double-clicking.

  In the present embodiment, the file is stored in the storage unit 40. However, for example, a file existing outside by a cloud service may be used. At that time, link destination information is added to the icon or URL to be operated, and the control unit 30 of the tablet terminal 10 accesses the link destination file by connecting to the Internet or the like.

  In this embodiment, the file is opened in the destination window. However, it is possible to set so that the file is opened in the previous window and the original screen is displayed in the destination window.
