When Microsoft announced Windows 10 way back in 2015, anticipated the OS to be on 1 billion gadgets within 3 years. That did not happen, in large part due to the OS‘s failure to take on Android and iOS in the cellular sector.

Although the video is low resolution, we catch a few glimpses at aesthetic changes. There’s a original take on the File Explorer, including some nifty original icons and a extra minimalist design. The Start Menue is cleaner as properly, with Live Tiles that now have a background to match your mild or dark theme. And at lengthy last, Microsoft is updating its fair-click menus to match Fluent UI.

Microsoft is holding a virtual occasion on March 30, which is anticipated to point of interest on Place of work related-information, such as a original subscription provider for everyday customers that combines Place of work, Teams, a original password manager, and extra. I’d expect to hear extra about the upcoming UI changes during its Fabricate 2020 occasion, which is being held online due to, you guessed it, coronavirus.
