Major UI Changes in windows 10 -Differentiate Tablets and PCs
As we all know, in Windows 8, Microsoft mostly concerned on touch screens and tablets. This made lot of normal PC users go crazy. So finally Microsoft decided to differentiate between touch PCs and normal desktops, that means the user interface will be different for touch versions and normal PCs.
The Return of old start Menu in Left Corner
One thing every Windows user likes about Windows 7 is it’s good looking and easy to use menu at left bottom. As we know, in Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 we don’t have that old menu. Instead we have a different UI in menu. So after hearing to many of its users feedback, Microsoft is ready to revert it back to old Windows 7 with some improvements.
In the next version of Windows, Microsoft including a new notification center like in Android and Windows mobiles. You can see all your app notifications in one place. As per the leaked news, this notification center gonna be at right bottom corner.
Change in Metro Apps UI
Everyone knows that Windows store for PC is a big flop. The idea was good but the implementation was very poor. After releasing the Windows 8 in to the market they realized this fact very lately. Somehow they’ve changed UI of Metro Apps in Windows 8.1 update 2. After this update we can minimize the Metro apps to taskbar but we don’t have control with the size of the Metro Apps.Image source: Myce
In windows 10 we can use metro apps like desktop apps. We can control the window size of Metro Apps like any other normal Windows applications.
In any kind of field it is very important to keep an eye on “what our competitors are doing?”. It looks like Microsoft forgot this principle. Finally, with the entry of new CEO Nadella Satya they realized that what users are loving in their competitor operating systems. Coming to the point, it is really very good news for us (Windows users). In windows 10 they are including the virtual desktop feature which is really amazing. Apple and Linux have this feature from years back.
