The Windows 10 operating system is going to look different, at least if Microsoft (Microsoft) launches an idea that it is currently testing as the bottom line is eliminating the Live Tiles feature in the Start menu.
The idea was unveiled yesterday by Microsoft employees as part of a live broadcast (starting 47 minutes) on the Windows Insider channel on the company’s game-focused video streaming service, Mixer.
Mike Lego , one of the main designers of the new operating system’s icon set, has revealed what they might look like in a future version of the Start menu. The image he presented shows many Microsoft software icons, with the common denominator being the icons themselves more colorful than their predecessors but displayed on a uniform background rather than a combination of colors, with each application having a different background color.
“The idea is to unify the look of the Start menu, from a rather chaotic tint to something of a more uniform shape. But that doesn’t mean the living tiles are going anywhere – look for no meaning here. , He told Joy.
Even Brandon Blanca , senior staff of windows, hastened to emphasize that currently the company has not decided to completely eliminate the tiles in life. “The living tiles are not insignificant – we did not declare such a thing. Those who enjoy their living tiles can continue to do so,” he claimed.
Despite the clarifications, the live tiles don’t seem to last long: the feature, which was first launched as part of the Windows Phone 7 operating system in 2010 and reached PCs as part of Windows 8 in the fall of 2012, has not been updated in years, and even Microsoft itself has not bothered to support it in all its applications and software. In addition, in Windows 10X, coming this year with dual-screen devices, the Start menu no longer displays live tiles. So, even if the tiles continue to work for those who want it, it is worth starting to get used to life without them.
