Windows 10 new start menu

Not long ago, we reported about the new redesign of the Windows 10 Start menu and Microsoft keeps teasing it with every occasion despite its predicted next year launch.

It’s part of an older Microsoft plan to redesign the Start menu, and at some point, they even considered dropping the Live Tiles.

The latest showcase of the new Windows 10 Start menu is coming from a set of pictures posted on the Microsoft 365 Facebook page in a Pride campaign for LGBTQI+.

Is the long-awaited redesign closer than we think? We can only hope and wait for Microsoft’s move.

What’s new about the Start menu?

All the new photos of the new Start menu are showing it with the Live Tiles turned off.

At the present Start menu, if you turn off the live tiles, the apps will have solid blocks of color.

In the new version, the Fluent Design-powered app icons are placed in the center.

Although it’s not shown in the latest photos, we can assume that Start Menu will also offer support for light and dark modes, and Live Tiles.

The new Start Menu features revamped app icons and on the left, you will still notice the Recent apps list.

As stated by the Microsoft Team in a recent podcast:

The idea is to visually unify the Start menu, [from] a somewhat chaotic color, to something a bit more uniform.

When is the new Start menu coming up?

Obviously, Microsoft is still exploring this new redesign for the Start menu of Windows 10 but it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if we will see it in a preview build later this year.
