Microsoft’s intentions regarding the 10X user interface were almost completely revealed by a missing web page, first mentioned to a small blue bird by a feline hanging around. The changes are radical for static Windows, but there’s nothing revolutionary: call it ChromeOS for Windows.
The Start menu, now called “initiator” in the very Android form, has a new search function “perfectly integrated with web results, available applications and specific files on your device”. It is compatible with voice, keyboard and touch and is based on everyone’s favorite search engine, Bing.
Just below is a semi-permanent application grid, chosen by the user, but can be modified slightly according to use. Websites can be installed as Edge applications. When you expand it, all applications on the device are displayed and
can be uninstalled from there.
Below is a “recommended” section, focusing on “dynamically updated” content based on the most recently used applications, files and websites. View live thumbnails and the list of applications, as we know it, has completely disappeared. As an additional benefit, Cortana is too.
At the bottom of a new Windows 10X interface, you will find a modified taskbar, which could have a new and mysterious file explorer. “For fins and shelves, the taskbar will be the same basic model with a series of” levers “that can be used to create alternatives in the model.” Few stylistic options.
To the right is an action center that seems to replace both the notification center and the quick settings. From Android, a normal list of notifications and some configurable quick settings are registered. Interestingly, reference is also made to cellular parameters, which might suggest that the Neo has a SIM card slot.
The documents show that there are still many undecided things about Windows 10X: here we are commenting on the design summaries. Do not believe that anything is a guarantee. In fact, if these documents are as recent as they suggest, Microsoft doesn’t even have a single line of code for Windows 10X. This is a great opportunity to share your comments with Microsoft so they can implement it for the launch of Surface Neo next year. If you have ideas, be vocal.
