On Instagram, Windows and Devices chief, Panos Panay has disclosed that they are moving ahead with the changes in the startup menu of the Windows 10 operating system. And as predicted, Live Tiles will be made less prominent
Rumours state that Microsoft will decrease the colour in the blocks of the tile interface on the Start menu. This is being done to follow the statement that Microsoft will make the operations of Windows 10 simpler and easier for scanning apps.

You can see it in the video link below and check how the spacing between the Live Tiles have changed to make the menu more comfortable for the users.

The tech giant is also working to enhance the Fluent Design System in Windows 10. They might add more modern context menus and even introduce a new Files application. Let’s face it, we all wanted a new Windows File Explorer for a long time, and thankfully, Microsoft’s video promises a teaser for one.

The company has been producing a lot of changes in the Windows icons as visible in the videos. According to The Verge, “Built-in Windows 10 apps are gradually being updated with new and colourful icons ahead of a bigger effort to modernize the OS with Windows 10X for dual-screen devices like the Surface Neo.”

Microsoft has a lot of unveiling lined up as, during an online event on 30th March, they are scheduled to reveal the consumer subscriptions for its Microsoft 365 services. So we might expect them to discuss the new updates in the event because the teaser has been released.

Rumours say that they will combine Office, Microsoft Teams, a password manager and some general consumer-focused features and make them into a monthly subscription.

No news regarding the upcoming Surface Book 3 or Surface Go 2 is expected. However, we do expect them to disclose some plans regarding their Windows for 2020 and future.

The company is also featuring its Build developer event online this year probably because of coronavirus so that is where we’ll get to know more about Windows and Windows 10 X for dual-screen devices.
