Microsoft ported some features of the Windows 10X boot animation to Windows 10
We have already used the leaked version of the image to operate the Windows 10X version. Overall, this version is indeed more like a modern operating system.
However, this version is only for educational equipment, so ordinary users may not be able to use it. However, Microsoft has ported some of its features to the Windows 10 version.
For example, we mentioned that Microsoft ported some features of the Windows 10X Action Center to the Windows 10 version. It turns out that Microsoft is actually still porting more things.
Netizen @NTDEV discovered that the current Windows 10 development and beta version hides some of the features of the Windows 10X version, which can be activated by modifying the registry.
A possible Sun Valley discovery! It seems that you can enable the new bootanimation from 10X in the current Insider Builds!
You just have to go to HKLMSystemControlSet001BootControl (you have to create the key)
Then, add a DWORD named BootProgressAnimation and enable it (1) pic.twitter.com/FLhiYAyDin

The boot animation of the Windows 10X version is quite different from the Windows 10 version, and the power management button of this version is also different in styles such as shutdown or restart.
For example, in the startup interface, Microsoft does not use the interval dot animation of the Windows 10 version, but directly uses a thicker continuous line to make a circle.
Netizens found that this feature has been ported to the Windows 10 version but not enabled. If you modify it through the registry, you can enable the new boot animation like the Windows 10X version.
That key is:
Of course, this is limited to the Windows 10 Dev development version. After testing, you can see the new boot animation in Windows 10 Dev Build 21292.
The new startup animation is not much new, but it shows that Microsoft is porting more things, and perhaps Windows 10 can be more modern in the future.
