It’s no secret that Microsoft has been working a redesign of the Windows 10 Start Menu for a while now. If you have been curious as to what we can expect from it, then good news for you as Microsoft has given a clearer look of the redesign.
There is a new video tweeted out by the Microsoft Design account which lets you see the new Windows 10 Start Menu, as well as how it has improved over the years since Windows 95. At the same time, they have asked the public for feedback and it has been received rather positively.
New Windows 10 Start menu features
For starters, the new Windows 10 Start Menu has a more compact appearance from the existing one. The icons now follow the new “fluent design” concept, and the use of space here will make it less confusing for those who have installed plenty of applications on their computer.
Furthermore, the texts below the application icons are no longer visible which leads to a cleaner appearance. However, the reception to this change is mixed as some may prefer the cleaner look while others may have a hard time figuring out which icons belong to which software.
There is a chance that Microsoft may remove the Live Tiles-style icon in the future, but there’s no official word just yet. For now, the release date of the new Windows 10 Start Menu is still unknown. The next major OS update is coming on 10th May 2020, so we might just see it then. Otherwise, we’ll just have to wait for another update.
Pokdepinion: I’m personally a fan of the new look. I think the lack of text is something anyone can get used to rather easily.
