For the first time in the world when the touch screen came who would ever have imagined that they also would be using their PCs would also become touchscreen one day.
Yes the news is from the world’s most successful Operating system producer Microsoft. In the blog of Microsoft Windows 8, Alice Stein glass, a manager with Microsoft’s intricatelyentitled Core Experience Evolved team said that they are bringing a new form of start menu that they named “reimagining”.
They gave it this name because of the changes made by them that the new Windows Metro Start Screen will allow more customization than the Start Menu that we are using now a day. Today we rely on navigation from start menu but with the new technology applications will be visible all at once. This is much similar to Apple Machines “all applications” shortcuts. A Windows 8 user can pin their desired applications like weather forecast app, email client, notepad application, etc. to the newly developed Start Screen for easy access.
There is a very well said saying that “Change is good” and when it comes to Microsoft they give surprises and very high tech technologies to their users which provide them more flexibility.
The change was made after the reviews that “the start menu which users are using now is not well-optimized for such purposes” as said by Stein glass. After moving from Windows Vista to Windows 7, the company realized an11 percent drop in Start Menu usage. Although it is notanoverwhelming number, but one the company does not wanted to dishearten their users.
