Microsoft Introduces New Start Menu In Windows 10, New Taskbar, And More Changes In Latest Update

Microsoft Introduces New Start Menu In Windows 10, New Taskbar, And More Changes In Latest Update The Windows 10 Start menu has a new design (which was recently revealed ). So lets see the latest update for insiders that will soon reach all users of the operating system. Additionally, Microsoft developers have made other relevant changes to the taskbar, the Alt + Tab menu, and more.

The news belongs to Build 20161 of Windows 10 . As is often the case with beta versions, it is available to Windows Insider Program users and you must be a member of the program to receive the update. Otherwise, you have to wait until the version has been polished and Microsoft starts sending the update to all users through its update program. Without further ado, let's see the main news.

Without a doubt the great change that we are going to find is in the Start menu . The structure is practically maintained, although now the design is unified by improving the icons and eliminating the solid colors of the live tiles . A change that is certainly appreciated, because it harmonizes better with the rest of the interface by getting rid of those solid blues with a much greater weight than that of the bottom of the menu.

Alt + Tab has also been slightly modified . This keyboard command allows you to switch between Windows windows easily through a pop-up window that shows the preview of the apps. From now on it will also show all the tabs open in Edge and not just the one that is currently active. Microsoft says that it is possible to return to the previous option where only one of them is shown if it seems more comfortable to us.

Another relevant change is found in the task bar of new users (it does not automatically apply to existing users). The change has to do with the inclusion of an Xbox icon for Xbox Live users and a 'Your phone' icon for Android users. In this way, it can be accessed directly from there and more quickly.

Finally there are certain changes in the preview of notifications . Now an X will appear in the upper right corner to get rid of the notification quickly if we are not interested. On the official website of the update they reveal some extra minor changes related to news for developers and improvements to fix existing errors. The update, as is often the case with betas, is being rolled out gradually to all users of the Windows Insiders program. We will see when it reaches all users.
