Originally made for dual-screen devices.
Announced in 2019, we only saw brief appearances of Windows 10X in the past months. The operating system was originally made for dual-screen devices like the Surface Neo, but Microsoft has since changed direction and will now offer Windows 10X to low-cost Chromebook style devices.
A leaked build of Windows 10X was reported by Bleeping Computer, which finally gave us a peek at what the new operating system looks like. It’s not entirely new to be fair, think of Windows 10X to be the Lite version of Windows 10 that can be installed on less powerful devices.
The new changes include static Start Menu icons along with shortcuts to various Microsoft software. Installed apps will be seen on the main Start Menu screen, which you can right-click and pin to the taskbar. Additionally, a floating Action Center will debut with Windows 10X, where you can access various tools and settings with a single click.
You can check out the rest of the new UI changes at Bleeping Computer.
Reports said that Microsoft is looking to release Windows 10X by this spring, though they haven’t confirmed an exact date.
