Microsoft Teased A New UI For Windows 10 And It's Stunning

To celebrate the 1 billion device mark of Windows 10, Microsoft released a teaser video showing how the new UI will look like. And it's promising!

Microsoft has been hinting on a revamped Start menu for Windows 10. But the company has now released a teaser for the next refresh of Windows 10 UI to celebrate its 1-billion mark. The teaser was posted on Instagram by the chief product officer of the tech giant, Panos Panay.

The video starts with an illustration of Windows’ evolution over the years from Windows 1.01 to Windows 10. But the interesting things begin at the twelfth second when Microsoft shows a set of new icons, then a redesigned look for the Live Tiles and Start Menu in the operating system.

The company has replaced the brightly colored, rectangular icons with more unified colors that change automatically in accordance with your desktop background. The icons may potentially change based on other interface elements too.

Besides, the video also unveiled a wide range of options for accessibility including pointers in various colors and sizes, which could better support the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a new built-in snipping tool, etc.

The video then capped off everything by revealing the light and dark themes for Windows 10 as well as other options for snapping and resizing to make multi-tasking easier and faster. The tech giant also mentioned support for ARM-based systems such as the Surface Pro X and x86-based systems that are powered by AMD and Intel chips.

Overall, the upcoming changes in Windows 10 UI look promising as it seems to offer a sleeker and more streamlined interface that’s in line with the Fluent design language Microsoft introduced in 2017. One of the biggest complaints about the operating system right now is the UI, which seems disjointed as it tends to look like Windows XP when users dive in deeper and deeper. Meanwhile, the new Start menu comes in a cleaner, more moderns design.

Another big tweak is that Windows seems to de-emphasize Live Tiles, which have caused troubles for many users for a long time. As Windows 10X has ditched Live Tiles, the new UI of Windows 10 may do the same.
