What are your plans for today?
Microsoft has invited people to an event on June 24th, at 11:00 a.m. ET, to “to see what’s next for Windows.” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Chief Product Officer Panos Panay will host the event.
During the Build conference a week ago, Microsoft teased the “next generation of Windows” What will change with the next major Windows release is unknown until something official is announced; however, if the Sun Valley enhancements make it to this release, it could mean a significant UI overhaul is on the way, including the redesign of old icons and the addition of a floating start menu. The update might also include a huge makeover of the Microsoft Store, which has been widely publicised.
The supposed graphic overhaul, easier app management and support for unpackaged Win32 apps would surely be welcomed by both users and devs.
Microsoft has indicated that, despite the cancellation of Windows 10X, it intends to include some of its features into Windows 10. While we wait, you may upgrade your PC with the Windows 10 May Update, which includes many quality of life improvements. This update will not revitalise your system, but the incorporated improvements will be much appreciated.
If you’re interested in watching the reveal of the “next-generation of Windows,” set a reminder and tune in on June 24th at 11:00am ET.
