Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system passed a billion active users earlier this week, and to celebrate that occasion, the company released a video that teases new features and UI changes.
In an Instagram video from Windows and Devices chief Panos Panay, Microsoft has revealed it’s pushing ahead with changes to the Windows 10 Start menu.

The team made this video to celebrate making it to 1 billion MAD on Windows 10 and I wanted to share it with all of you. Now at a time when so much of our work and communication is taking place through our devices, it’s especially humbling to know that Windows can help empower a billion people to stay connected to the things and people they care about #Windows
Microsoft also appears to be working on improving its Fluent Design system in Windows 10, with more modern context menus and even a new Files app.
The video includes many of Microsoft’s changes to the Windows icons that the company has been rolling out recently.
Built-in Windows 10 apps are gradually being updated with new and colorful icons ahead of a bigger effort to modernize the OS with Windows 10X for dual-screen devices like the Surface Neo.
