Microsoft’s Windows 10 has passed a whopping 1 billion active users milestone earlier this week. On the celebration of this milestone, the company posted a new video that teases new features and UI changes that will be coming to Windows 10.
In an Instagram video from Windows and Devices chief Panos Panay, Microsoft has revealed it’s pushing ahead with changes to the Windows 10 Start menu that will ditch the existing Live Tiles from the Start Menu and will replace with a brand new concept.
Microsoft is planning to reduce the color of the blocks of the tiled interface on the Start menu to simplify it and make it easier to scan for apps. In addition to this, there are some changes made in the spacing of the tiles menu to give it a fresh look.

The team made this video to celebrate making it to 1 billion MAD on Windows 10 and I wanted to share it with all of you. Now at a time when so much of our work and communication is taking place through our devices, it’s especially humbling to know that Windows can help empower a billion people to stay connected to the things and people they care about #Windows
Microsoft also appears to be working on improving its Fluent Design system in Windows 10, with more modern context menus and even a new Windows File Explorer. This is something what Windows users have been waiting for long to see a new design on the Files app.
It also includes many of Microsoft’s changes to the Windows icons that the company has been rolling out recently. Built-in Windows 10 apps are gradually being updated with new and colorful icons to give it a simpler look.
The teaser video comes just days before Microsoft plans to unveil consumer subscriptions for its Microsoft 365 service during an online event on March 30th. Microsoft is expected to bundle Office, Microsoft Teams, a password manager, and some general consumer-focused features into a monthly subscription.
