Microsoft Tweets New Windows 10 Start Menu Design, It Looks Slick!

Microsoft has gone the SaaS route where Windows 10 continues to receive updates, both big and small. In older times, we might have already reached Windows 12 by now but the new schedule seems far more plausible. Despite some shortcomings in these updates that affected performance, it has been a good run overall.

The new Windows 10 Start Menu design is the talk of the town. When the company removed the Start button way back in the past, people were literally irritated. They brought it back, made some neat changes but it is not as productive or slick as it is supposed to be. With a new tweet, Microsoft gives us a quick overview of the design language they have implemented in the new design and it looks impressively good.

In the quick video, the company showcases the design of the Windows 10 start menu in both light and dark mode. If you are using your PC endlessly and would like to give your eyes some break, the dark mode is a welcome addition. The mode helps reduce eye strain, has dull colors but still the icons look great.

The overall design theme is based on what Microsoft calls the Fluent Design. The idea is to increase the space between blocks so as to make them more readable and easy to comprehend. Live Tiles is probably getting removed or modified as they don’t add value to these aesthetics. The larger icons will also work better with touchscreen tablets when Windows 10X gets launched.

The original Windows 10 update that brings this new start menu and lots of other tweaks was previously expected to be rolled out this summer. However, with the health issue affecting the world, it might get delayed. After all, new updates often affect performance of computers and there is no time to bug fix or rollout additional updates to support. It is better to wait for the team to spring back to action before they roll out such a huge update to their OS.
