Microsoft is developing a floating Start Menu for Windows 10
Microsoft is currently undergoing a major upgrade of the Windows 10 UI interface through a project called Sun Valley to revive the best desktop experience of the Windows system.
The Sun Valley project has introduced many improvements, but there is still a lot of content that has not yet appeared, that is, it has not been released to the Windows 10 preview version for testing.
For example, the rumored floating Start Menu, the Start Menu in the current stable version is completely close to the edge of the screen and the taskbar, and there will be no gaps in the middle.
The floating taskbar is to enhance the pop-up effect to separate the Start Menu from the edge of the screen and the taskbar, which looks like the Start Menu is floating on the desktop.
The above picture is not a real machine picture but a preview picture made by the media based on the information currently known. From the preview picture, we can see the style designed by Microsoft.
It is difficult to say whether this floating start menu will satisfy all users, but whether users are satisfied with this style will eventually arrive in Windows 10.
Also worth noting is the rounded corner design in the Start Menu. In the above figure, only the edge of the Start Menu becomes rounded, and the actual tiles will also become rounded.
The rounded corners of the tiles are not reflected in the preview. We should see more changes when Microsoft releases the Windows 10 Insider Preview.
