When Microsoft launched Windows 10 in 2015, no one expected it to reach a billion users. And well, five years later, the company is celebrating their connectivity with a billion active users. On this occasion, they have released a teaser that shows new features and UI changes.
In a video posted on Instagram by Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer, Panos Panay, it is revealed that the Windows 10 is pushing ahead with changes in the Start Menu. The colour of the tiled interface on the Start menu will be reduced and simplified, making it easier to scan for apps. This is shown in the video alongside what appears to be some spacing changes to how Live Tiles are displayed.
Microsoft is also working on improving its Fluent Design system in Windows 10, with more modern context menus and even a new Files app. A modern take on the Windows File Explorer!
Get ready for more new and colourful icons to modernize the Operating System with Windows 10X for dual-screen devices. Also, on 30 March, Microsoft will unveil consumer subscriptions for its Microsoft 365 service. This will include bundle Office, Microsoft Teams, a password manager and few general consumer-focused features into a monthly subscription.

The team made this video to celebrate making it to 1 billion MAD on Windows 10 and I wanted to share it with all of you. Now at a time when so much of our work and communication is taking place through our devices, it’s especially humbling to know that Windows can help empower a billion people to stay connected to the things and people they care about #Windows
