To celebrate 1 billion users.
Earlier this year Microsoft has already started hinting about big changes that are coming to Windows 10. Just last week, they celebrated more than 1 billion users of their latest operating system that was released in 2015. A lot has changed since the first release of Windows 10, and Microsoft has committed to keeping updating it on a regular basis, different from previous Windows versions.
Part of the teasers that Microsoft is showing is a refreshed user interface for Windows 10. Based on a video posted by Microsoft’s chief product officer Panos Panay, it looks like Windows 10 is getting a new cleaner look. Redesigned icons and a revamped Start Menu are just some of the big visual changes that you will see.

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
Speaking of the Start Menu, one thing that was highlighted in the video is Live Tiles. Since this feature never really took off, it looks like Microsoft is removing the feature and changing it to standard looking tiles when this new version of Windows 10 is released.
Microsoft said that a new unified color scheme will be implemented across the entire OS, which will adjust automatically to match the color of your desktop background. Additionally, new light and dark themes along with improved snapping options were also showcased which will improve the overall user experience.
More details should be revealed in the next couple of weeks. What do you think of Windows 10’s new user interface? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
