Better notifications, new search options and a new user interfaceFor now, Windows 10 is still limited to a few key features, such as the ability for users to add more third-parties, which are software applications that can be used to add third-person features to the desktop, and the ability of users to download apps directly from the Windows store, but these are all planned features.
Microsoft has also announced that it’s working on a new version of the desktop interface for Windows 10, dubbed the Universal Windows Desktop.
This interface will allow Windows users to easily switch between apps on a variety of devices, including laptops, desktops and tablets.
However, Microsoft says that the desktop is only “part of a much larger set of interfaces,” which includes touchscreens, touch keyboards, touch-enabled mice and even keyboard docks, so you won’t be able to use the Universal desktop with Windows 10 PCs.
In the coming months, Microsoft plans to roll these out across a variety, if not all, of the Microsoft Store, as well as on Windows PCs.
We’ll be sure to update you with any news we get on these features.
