Microsoft is going to make big visual changes to the interface of the Windows 10 operating system. They will affect primarily tablet mode.
In the new tablet operating mode, the standard desktop and taskbar will be saved, but the distance between the icons of open or pinned programs will be increased. There is no search line, a magnifying glass icon is displayed instead. The virtual keyboard will automatically appear when you click on the text field. In addition, the changes will be in the “Explorer” – Microsoft adapts it to touch mode. Currently, in tablet mode, much more truncated features than in desktop.
As before, hybrid devices can automatically switch from desktop mode to desktop mode and vice versa, depending on whether a physical keyboard is connected or not.
In addition to these innovations, Microsoft is preparing several more, including cloud recovery of Windows 10 after a reset or when installing on a new device. Due to this, the need to save a full backup of all data and installed programs to an external storage medium will disappear.
