Microsoft released a new start menu for the Windows 10 operating system on Wednesday, local time, according tomedia reports. The new design will reduce the importance of live tiles. In a blog post, Microsoft explained: “We started with a smoother, simplified design update menu, removed the solid background behind the logo in the application list, and applied a partially transparent, unified background to the program icon.” “
In essence, reducing the color of the tiled icon interface in the start menu is a little simplified, making it easier for users to browse the applications they often use. While this is a subtle design tweak, it does make the start menu look less messy and avoid many block icons that are the same blue color.
In addition to updating the start menu, the latest version of Windows 10 has made some major changes to the Alt-Tab interface. “Starting today, all tabs that open in the Microsoft Edge browser will appear in the Alt-Tab interface, not just the Active tabs in each browser window,” Microsoft explains. Older users may not be used to this change, but it’s good that Microsoft allows users to switch back to the classic Alt-Tab experience.
Microsoft had previously tried to make changes to the Alt-Tab experience on the Windows 10 operating system, when the company planned to add tabs for each application. When Microsoft makes a major update to its Windows 10 operating system later this year, the change in the Alt-Tab experience is bound to draw a lot of feedback from users.
Microsoft has also made minor changes to the new Windows 10 operating system. The default taskbar will also look more personalized, with Xbox Live users adding Xbox apps and Android users pinning Your Phone to it. Overall, however, the existing taskbar layout will remain the same.
In addition, there will be an “X” in the upper right corner of the notification window, which allows the user to close quickly. Microsoft is also improving the settings in Windows 10. Users typically click “Settings” to refer to the system classification on the Control Panel page, and now it will be directed to the About page in the settings. This means that users can find the control panel system features they need more easily, and Microsoft has promised “more improvements to bring the ‘Settings’ option closer to the control panel.” “
