- The main innovation will be the use of rounded corners throughout the system.
- Start will be separated from the taskbar and organized differently
- The quick settings panel will also change
- The notification bar will look more like the one used in Windows 10X
- An item with weather and other useful information will appear on the taskbar, taking into account the user’s preferences
- Redesign the multi-screen system
- Users of tablets and laptops with touch screens will be able to control the system with gestures like Windows Precision Touchpad
- For English-speaking users, the Cortana assistant will acquire a minimalistic interface
Windows Central noted that Microsoft rarely makes final decisions so early, so things may still change. Sun Valley is slated for release in the second half of the year, with a light version of Windows 10X due in the spring.
