May update to Microsoft releases new UI preview of Windows 10 start menu

按照计划,Windows 10 20H1 更新即将于五月下旬到来,20H2 更新则需要等到今年晚些时候。不过在五月更新到来之前,微软已经在一段低分辨率视频中预告了即将迎来的 Windows 10 开始菜单的最新改进。从 UI 来看,新版开始菜单显得更加简洁,不过天气、新闻、邮件和照片等特定应用的动态瓷贴功能并未被砍去。

In the previous trailer, Panos Panay has shown a more streamlined version of Explorer.

As shown in the motion image, the Fillet icon designed by fluent can be seen in the Start menu. But for some unknown reason, Microsoft replaced it with Microsoft Edge in the new trailer.

Given that the Windows 10 2020 May update is locked, these interface changes are expected to be reflected in a preview later this year and may not be implemented until early next year.
