Windows 10 Screenshots Leak Showing Return To Basics


Microsoft's expected to hold its Build 2015 conference tomorrow, where the software giant is expected to showcase key features of its next operating system, Windows 10 to developers. Windows 10 has been in the works for quite a while at Microsoft, and Redmond seems to be taking measured steps when it comes to it. Windows 10 is expected to be a mixture of the rather contemporary Windows 8 and the old school Windows 7, and more screenshots have leaked today supporting this claim.

More Windows 10 Screenshots Leak Showing Greater Lean Towards Windows 7's Design

As the days pass, we get to see more and more leaks about Windows 10. Another screenshot leaked today shows the return of an 'Aero' like affect. Aero was Microsoft's visual interface prior to Windows 8, which saw the feature disappear completely. But if today's screenshots are accurate, then we might also be seeing a similar interface called Arrow return on Windows 10 and end up giving the operating system more visual effects for you to enjoy.

As can be seen in the screenshot above, not only does the Start Menu contain a blend of both metro and traditional features, the transparent affect is also present in it. Toggle to full screen however, and you'll see the transparency disappear with all of the Menu's features available in front of you. Windows 10 is expected to bring several new features on board. These include Cortana, Microsoft's virtual assistant that will aid you in a variety of tasks from checking up on the weather, setting up reminders and browsing the web for any search related queries. Microsoft's IE upgrade, Spartan will also be showing alongside Windows 10. Spartan is Microsoft's drastic remake of the web browser that allows you to interact with web pages in a unique manner. We'll be updating you from Microsoft's event tomorrow so stay tuned for all the latest updates on Windows 10 and more.
