New user experience
For ordinary users, the change of interaction interface and mode of the system will produce the most obvious difference. Windows 10x completely redesigns the system interface, adopts an adaptive design scheme, and the display interface can be adjusted according to the shape of the device. For example, the foldable screen PC can be used in notebook, tablet and foldable form, while the windows 10x will adjust the display interface according to the use form to provide the best operation experience.
In addition, some old elements, such as control panel, file manager, etc., will be wiped out or rebuilt in Windows 10x. Microsoft has reconstructed the whole shell in Windows 10x, so the interface design in the new version of the system will be very uniform, and there will be no such situation as windows 10.
In terms of operation, windows 10x also brings more gesture operation logic.
New start menu
Microsoft is redesigning the start menu that the PC user is no longer familiar with to improve efficiency. The new start menu looks very similar to the application drawer of Android system. The top contains the search bar, which can search local content and online content; the bottom is the application and website icon used to replace the current dynamic tile; the bottom is the document content recently used or the website recently visited by the user, which is convenient for the user to resume the previous work.
For the applications shown in the middle, users can customize, fix their common applications on the list, and support rearrangement. In addition, the new start menu supports application folders, which can group applications, just like the existing start menu.
Windows 10x also includes a new taskbar. As mentioned above, the adaptive interactive interface, the new taskbar can be changed according to the use of the device or user preferences. On the new taskbar, some shortcuts will be centered by default, but they can be customized, and the settings are the same as the Current Windows 10. In addition, the new version of the taskbar is optimized for the touch environment.
In addition to the new start menu and taskbar mentioned above, Microsoft has renovated its control center. The new control center is visual, andappleThe notice of is a bit similar. The new design focuses on enhancing the operation efficiency, integrating volume adjustment, quick operation, information notification, etc.
New setup experience
Because the whole interactive interface of windows 10x has been redesigned, and the setup and guidance page has also been redesigned after startup, which looks more modern. What makes some people more happy is that Cortana no longer exists. After the new machine is powered on, the sentence "let Xiaona help you" won't be heard again.
New compose mode
In general, applications on Windows 10x run in full screen mode, not in the current windowed mode. However, in large screen devices, after switching to compose mode, the application can run in window mode, just like a normal laptop. But it's not sure if this will happen on devices with small screens.
Support for old Win32 applications
This should be a point of concern for more people. Microsoft has added a new container in Windows 10x system to run old Win32 applications. When the Win32 Application runs in Windows 10x, it will be sandboxed, which means that running the old software program in the new operating system will face a series of problems. And, although Microsoft has been trying to make sure that there is no performance difference between the old and new applications, there may be a delay in starting the old version of Win32 applications for the first time.
When the system doesn't need to use the old win32 program, it doesn't need to load the corresponding components to extend the device's life and system performance.
Improved windows update
Windows 10x updatesAlso evolved, the installation of feature updates will not last as long as on Windows 10, and the installation of feature updates will take place in the background. When a reboot is required to complete the upgrade, the restart can be completed in less than 90 seconds. Such an upgrade would be a big step forward compared to the current version of Windows 10.
It's a new feature that Microsoft doesn't have yet, and Windows 10X's dynamic wallpaper feature can show different elements depending on time. For example, the display of wallpaper for three time periods in the morning, middle and late will show the characteristics of the current time point.
Only for folding screen or dual screen PC
Windows 10X will be pre-installed in a dual-screen or folding-screen PC, and the equipment will be shipped in the second half of the year if it is not unexpected. Moreover, the new system does not offer mirror downloads or push to existing devices, nor does Microsoft offer purchase options.
