Two new Windows 10 Updates arrive every year with new features and changes. But most of these are either visible only in individual apps or system-level changes, which makes me think that we never have a jaw-dropping moment after updating our machines.
However, that’s not the case with this new Windows 20 concept developed by popular UI designer Kameer Kaan Avdan. The name is likely inspired by the recently released Samsung Galaxy S20 and the fact that we are living in the 2020 decade now.
Avdan’s latest Windows 20 concept is as visually appealing as his other creations. His YouTube video goes on to highlight what all changes have been made to the different Windows UI components to make them look beautiful while being more productive and customizable.
One of the things that piqued my interest is the Taskbar, where app icons can be re-arranged. You can align them to the left or put them in the center, just like the upcoming Windows 10X operating system.
Also, the Start Menu looks better than what we see on Windows 10. Here, when you hover the mouse over a particular tile, it reveals all the options that otherwise would show up when you right-click.
Avdan’s Windows 20 concept also showcases a revamped File Explorer (apparently, Microsoft is working on one) that brings a clean user interface and support for multiple tabs. In the past, Microsoft was working on a similar feature called Sets that eventually landed on a cold bed.
Furthermore, you can also find the new Microsoft icons for Windows and various other apps shown in the video. Nonetheless, watching such visually appealing software is an entirely different experience even though we know it’s just an artist’s imagination and may never land on the actual Windows OS. Let’s see what Microsoft has in store for the future.
