Microsoft has teased that the company is experimenting with a new Start Menu design for Windows 10 that will see the company de-emphasise its current Live Tiles interface. The possible changes were revealed during a Windows Insider podcast on March 3 and these changes are designed to make the interface look more presentable by decreasing the number of coloured blocks, and in the process making it much easier to scan the apps. To recall, Microsoft has been using the Live Tiles interface ever since the company first introduced Windows 10 in 2015.
According to the report
Regardless of these statements, there’s still a possibility for the Live Tiles interface to be scrapped completely at some point in the future as not all of Windows 10 apps support Live Tiles and the developers also haven’t shown any keen interest in the interface either. The report further mentions that according to some sources, Microsoft is yet to take a final decision on Live Tiles in Windows 10 that will be determined based on the feedback from the change in Windows 10X. Speaking of which, the Start Menu found in Windows 10X looks very different to the one found on the desktop version of Windows 10.
