At today’s Windows 10 event, Microsoft introduced a new Windows experience coming to its upcoming operating system. New features include a Start Menu that can expand full screen thanks to popular feedback from Windows Insiders.
These new desktop experiences work in conjunction with Continuum which switches between touch and mouse/keyboard mode when a user detaches the keyboard on their hybrid PC. Another new feature is the Action Center. It looks very familiar to what the Action Center looks like on Windows Phone, in that it shows you notifications in addition to quick settings.
For those of you who were unhappy with the way Modern UI apps can no longer be snapped to the sides in full screen mode in the current Windows 10 builds, that looks like it will be changing with newer builds and the introduction of Continuum. It’s clear from the event that many of these new features came from Windows Insider requests, so Microsoft really is listening. Windows 10, the people’s OS.Further reading: Action Center, Microsoft, Windows 10
