Microsoft Photos app ditches hamburger menu in Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft released a new update to the Microsoft Photos and Microsoft Camera apps for Windows 10. The update is available on both PCs and phones.

The update for the Photos app removes the hamburger menu in Windows 10 Mobile in favor of the top navigation bar, similar to how the navigation works in Windows Phone 8.1. Some Insiders will be pleased with this update, as some aren’t fans of the hamburger menu. The update also adds the ability to set a photo as a live tile from the ellipsis menu.

The latest update to the camera app doesn’t really add anything new as far as we can tell. We believe it’s mostly just stability improvements and bug fixes.

The update is available now from the Windows Store. Did you find anything else that has changed after the updates? Let us know in the comments below.
