Shh, don’t tell anyone, but Microsoft seems to be working on a secret design of the Start Menu. The company just teased this new creation that features rounded corners for a sleeker look.
Which is a puzzle in of itself, considering how reserved and guarded the company likes to behave lately.
But for some reason, the software titan itself posted this design on the Microsoft Tips website that gives us a glimpse at this visual overhaul of the Start Menu that the software titan is working on. An overhaul that is all about rounder corners.
This something that has been the talk of the town for years now.
Only now, have we an official clue that Redmond is cooking something up with rounded corners:
As the design above shows, right-clicking an app in the Start Menu launches a context menu that features these rounded corners. The tiles in the back also sport this design, and so does the search bar that is integrated into the taskbar.
Officially, the software titan has remained completely tight-lipped on this transition. For all intents and purposes, this is the first time we are hearing about this.
But all signs point towards this direction, which should just be a matter of time now.
The next feature update for Windows 10 that could see the debut of this design philosophy is the 20H2 release that is due in fall. However, before that happens, these changes must have to first arrive in the builds that are rolled out to Insiders in the preview program.
For now, they are nowhere to be seen.
Hopefully, that changes soon.
