After hearing that Microsoft may bring back the Start menu button to Windows starting with the next major release
, codenamed “Threshold,” a user imagined some other ways Windows 9 (or Windows 8.2
) might be improved. Andrew Ambrosino says
that Microsoft has to pay attention in the future to “the little things” inside Windows, as they currently don’t work quite as expected or aren’t that user-friendly.
In addition to the return of the Start menu, the next major Windows release should also find a way for the regular Windows and the new Metro environment to coexist. Instead of having two apps, one for the “old” Windows UI and one for Metro, each with its different designs, features and notifications, Microsoft
should try to unify the two environments. One way to do that is to allow users to run Metro apps inside windows in the regular desktop mode than force them to occupy the whole screen.
