Looks like six years after the launch, Microsoft is finally done with its Windows 10. The operating system has received so many updates over the years that has brought a handful of new features to the table, but the company has decided to hold the same moniker. After teasing the next generation of Windows during Build last week, Microsoft has announced that it will officially take the wraps off its “next generation of Windows” on June 24th at 11 AM ET (8 PM IST). Microsoft has begun sending the invites out to the media and it is mentioned that CEO Satya Nadella and CPO Panos Panay will be presenting the event.
As many of us already know, the company has been working on a total rejuvenation of the Windows Desktop user interface that is codenamed Sun Valley. Now, at this event company is expected to show off what it has been building all this time. While there aren’t any leaks until now, we can expect the company to include a number of visual enhancements and design overhauls. For starters, the next generation of Windows is expected to deliver a completely redesigned Start menu and taskbar with updated icons, sounds, and app designs. The animations are getting a revamp too. While the name itself is not confirmed, we expect the company to launch it as Windows 11.
Also, the company has recently announced that their Windows 10X that was originally built for dual-screen devices will be called off. Instead, the company is focusing on developing all these 10X features on the main version. CEO Nadella has previously confirmed to unlock a better economy for developers and creators within the Windows OS. On a similar note, the company is also working on revamping its store in recent months and rumors have it that the company will open its store up to all apps and rival platforms.
