Windows 10 may lose a major design feature


The next large-scale update of Windows 10 may deprive the start menu of the desktop version of the OS of its characteristic functional tiles, thereby returning its appearance to the original Windows 7 and XP. As a result, the "Start" menu will reproduce a list of all installed programs, recently opened applications, system settings icons according to the classic scenario.

Changes in the beta version of the operating system (build 19H1), in which there was no tool for pinning applications to the Start section, indicate the possibility of future modernization of the dozens' appearance. In the test version, the icons appear there only after the program is placed, as it was before. This serves as circumstantial evidence that live tiles may no longer appear after the next Windows 10 update. The experimental build is still available only for testers, and the final version of the Top 10 update may come out in the spring, becoming the next major update after October 2018

The famous Windows 10 tiles were designed to speed up your work and quickly open the required application without first searching the entire desktop. Initially, they were introduced into the interface of the mobile system Windows Phone, and later appeared in the desktop version of Windows 8. As a result, the usual look of the start menu turned into a full-screen version, consisting of many movable tiles of different sizes that were randomly placed on top of the desktop.


One of the reasons why Startup for Windows 10 has the ability to return to the standard look and lose its main functional difference from previous OS, was the ambiguous attitude of users towards the new design option. Most of the owners of desktop devices did not accept the appearance of the "dozens", as they were accustomed to the usual start-up interface. Microsoft has faced strong resentment towards the visual performance of the new OS, more designed for tablet devices, rather than PCs and laptops. This visual solution gave rise to the emergence of various third-party utilities that return the "Start" position to the familiar position in the lower left corner.

The appearance of functional innovations in the start menu in the experimental assembly does not mean that the Windows 10 update will necessarily teach them already in the stable version. It is likely that Microsoft is testing the innovation and will refrain from implementing it globally for now.
