Microsoft recently announced that it will release Windows 10 in 2015. Windows 10 is mostly focused on addressing shortcomings in the user interface introduced by Windows 8 by improving the user experience for non-touchscreen devices (such as desktop computers and laptops) and includes the ability to run Windows Store apps within windows on the desktop as well as in full-screen mode.
The Start Menu is Back!
One of the most significant changes that arrived with Windows 8 was the “metro” interface that pushed the classic windows desktop to the background and eliminated the Start menu that’s been a cornerstone of Windows since it was introduced in Windows 95. The Start Menu will be a mix of the classic application list and the Windows 8-introduced tiles.
Better Multi-Task Views
Taking a cue from operating systems like Mac OS X and Linux, Windows 10 will make task switching more interactive than just what’s sitting on the task bar. You’ll be able to access a full desktop view of all open applications and even have multiple desktops in which your running applications can be segregated.
Even More Focus on Cross-Device
Windows 10 will detect that your using a touch screen and focus on swipe gestures for those devices and be ready for mouse clicks when using a desktop.
