Last week, a new Windows 10 build leaked out on the wild. The leaked build, 10036, is mainly focused on UI improvements. Build 10036 introduces transparency for the Start Menu. The build also brings some new icons – for example, there is a new all apps icon on the start menu. Microsoft has also tweaked some of the UI elements on the Start Menu which makes it look much better than previous. One of the most subtle change on the UI is the smaller start menu button – it’s finally small which looks better than the previous size. However, if you use the “small” taskbar, the UI does look a bit unfinished.
Microsoft has also introduced some UI improvements for the default app changing dialog. Here is how it looks like:
Alongside these changes, Microsoft has also tweaked the icons – for example, the OneDrive and Quick Access icons are much flatter. The build also introduces a new recycle bin which doesn’t look great. I’ve also noticed that the title bar for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox is much thinner on Build 10036 compared to Build 9926. Microsoft has improved the user interface of Windows 10 throughout the operating system with Build 10036. There ar new toggle switches, progress bars, sliders, as well as new hover backgrounds.
So far, Windows 10 is shaping up nicely. Microsoft has finally started making much-needed UI improvements with recent Windows 10 builds. For those of you who’re wondering, Microsoft hasn’t yet announced anything on when the upcoming Windows 10 build will be available for Windows Insiders. However, the Microsoft’s Gabriel Aul today revealed that the upcoming build that the company releases to users won’t be 10036.
