Microsoft Intends to Modernize Existing Parts of Windows 10

Microsoft wanted to create an entirely new version of Windows that was different from the 30+ years of legacy. But earlier this year, they scrapped the entire plan and decided to improve Windows 10 instead.

The decision reflected when Microsoft posted a job looking for an engineer in the Windows shell team (which is responsible for things like the β€œStart & Taskbar to the touch, voice, and pen+ink interaction models, as well as features like snap and windowingβ€œ) to build β€œnew parts and modernizing existing parts of the Windows UXβ€œ.

The role for the Senior Program Manager also needed to conduct β€œuser research to understand users’ needs” and test their new solutions. Microsoft’s goal is to β€œunlock the creative and productive potential of customers.” 

We will see whether or not Microsoft is successful in doing so, in the June 24th event where the company will reportedly announce the new version of Windows!
