Win10 will usher in 21h2 update in the second half of this year, which is the biggest change of win10 in recent years. It will bring about the revision of UI interface and many components.
As a landmark design in Windows system, the start menu will also usher in new changes.
According to the report of windows lastest, more functions will be added to the start menu of win10, and the mechanism will be changed.
Win10 start menu will be completely separated from search
In the current win10, the start menu is integrated with the search function.
Although the search button is independent in win10, search and start menu are still integrated.
In practical use,When the user adjusts the size of the start menu, such as the height, the height of the search list will also change.
In older versions of win10, it was convenient to adjust the size of the start menu.
Just place the mouse on the edge of the start menu and drag it up and down to change the height of the start menu.
As the start menu and search are integrated, when adjusting the start menu, the height of search will also change, which will bring some problems.
For example, when the height is too low, some search UI elements can't be scaled normally, and users can't see some functions attached to the search menu, such as Bing screen capture or banner switching to edge browser, etc.
In the new version of win10, start menu and search are separated at last.
Adjusting the height of the start menu does not affect the search interface.
It should be noted that this change does not have to wait until the release of win10 21h2. Win10 search can push updates through Microsoft services, so the old version of win10 may also enjoy this update.
Microsoft search will integrate edge browser
In the new version of win10, the start menu and search are separated from each other, and search will add some new features.
For example,Microsoft is planning to share the data of edge browser with the search function. Through the system search function of win10, the data of edge browser can be searched directly.
At present, this new feature can be experienced in edge of Canary candidate.
In the setting of edge candidate version, you can turn on relevant options, win10 system search can access the data of edge browser, and users can directly browse the history, frequently visited sites, bookmarks and so on of edge from the system search.
It should be noted that although Microsoft is only testing the integration of edge browser into win10 system search at present, it is possible to share edge data with more system basic services in the future, such as Cortana and so on.
In general, although the adjustment of win10 start menu and search function is not significant, the improvement of details will still bring better experience. Look forward to the new version of win10.
