Windows 10 revamp

Among other projects that are still in development, Microsoft is in the process of adding the finishing touches to Windows 11.

As we can remember, Windows 10 was first announced back in 2015 and, even though it changed a bit over the past few years, much of the interface is still unchanged from 2015.

The operating system still uses UI features and elements from the Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP, and even Windows 95 versions.

Microsoft wants to change some Windows 10 UX elements

Although the redesigned interface for Windows will be coming later this year, in the form of the Sun Valley project, Microsoft is looking to spruce things up a bit.

Judging by a job listing that Microsoft posted some time ago, the company now wants to create a new experience that involves the customization of the existing Windows user interface.

This job listing we mentioned above, mentions that Microsoft is building new parts and modernizing existing parts of the Windows UX.

In order to improve the user experience, the tech giant is undergoing user research, to understand users’ needs and also test multiple solutions, before adding the finishing touches to the final look.

In other words, Microsoft wants a Senior Program Manager that will define and deliver a one of a kind experience.

Windows 11 is on its way to users’ PCs

Even though Microsoft might still be working on such projects, aimed at the modernization of the current operating system, the future is right around the corner.

In the meantime, the company is hard at work perfecting and testing the new version of the OS, which some call Windows 11, while others already dubbed it Sun Valley.

At first, Sun Valley was believed to be just a system update, which will bring a complete makeover to Windows 10. However, new information suggests that Microsoft plans to give this name to the new operating system.

The tech giant keeps describing it as revolutionary and astounding, so users are itching with curiosity and can’t wait for the official release.

This major event, that got everyone so excited, is supposed to happen on the 24th of June, so less than two weeks from now.
