New Videos Show Windows 9 Desktop in Action

/ 5 years ago


The technical preview release date for Windows 9 is still a few weeks away, but that hasn’t stopped videos of the new operating system from leaking online. This is the first time I’ve seen the OS in action and so far it’s looking far better than I expected it to. The clips below show various features of Windows 9 including the start menu, notification system and the multi-desktop mode. The start menu has clearly been improved upon, bridging the gap between the more traditional start menu featured in Windows 7, with the app focused functions of the Windows 8 metro-style interface.

The notifications system is certainly improved, featuring more extensive customisation options; it now has more in common with a smart phone notifications system than a desktop one.

Multi desktops are nothing new, but having the feature more directly wired into the stock OS offering is no bad thing; especially for those who work on multiple projects, or want to keep their gaming and work desktops separate.

Don’t forget that this is all from a pre-release build, so many aspects could still undergo a lot of changes, but for now, it looks like Microsoft are on the right track and the new version of Windows is shaping up nicely.

    I hope there’s an option to trash those silly tiles. I don’t like them.

    only thing that would keep me from upgrading is cost
