Microsoft is currently working on a redesign of its Windows 10 operating system in which the new features in the start menu stand out, which goes on to adopt a floating menu appearance with rounded corners.
This has been collected by the Windows Latest portal, which has accessed information about the new design of Windows 10, which is currently in development and is expected to be introduced in the October update of this year of the system.
The new design, known by the code name ‘Sun Valley’, was unveiled last summer and seeks to achieve a visual rejuvenation of Windows 10 by using elements of Microsoft’s Fluent Design and the WinUI language.
These changes that Microsoft is working on would be introduced in important components of the operating system interface, such as the action center, the texts and the start menu.
According to a recreation made by Windows Latest based on the information that is known so far about Sun Valley, the Windows 10 start menu will borrow a feature from Windows 10X (the version of Windows 10 designed for the flexibility of the cloud) as is the floating layout, with the menu slightly separated from the lower task bar.
The new Windows 10 Sun Valley start menu will also introduce rounded edges, and the radius of these edges cannot be customized, nor can the floating start menu layout be disabled.
Microsoft is expected to complete the design of Sun Valley in June, and this update will also affect other native system applications such as alarms and clock, email and calendar.
