windows 9 recent leaks, all the details so far

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

and there's a lot of new changes coming, there is 20 screenshot showing them and each shows new features as well as different aspect of the redesigned desktop, like a new notification center, windowed metro apps, new multi desktops feature, new more flatten icons to match the new style, and what it seems to be the return of aero at least for the task bar (finger crossed for this one :D),and most importantly, the return of the start menu, also a dedicated search button next to it

its very obvious this isn't final, besides the MS confidentiality policy, there's a few thing that seem to be place holder, like the old recycle bin icon

 

another things i spotted, was how the start menu folds to the right like it did in all previous version up to XP which i welcome, the command prompt got a subtle font change, the explorer seems to be almost the same to how it look in windows 8, as well as the windows outer box

 

there's a lot in here that i probably missed but what i spotted does look like a massive upgrade vs 7 and 8, can't wait for the previews to roll out test all of this on my own :D

 

edit: another new things that can be seen in the pictures, found by @GoodBytes

To add more details:

We can notice, from the 3 first icon (including start button), from the bottom, right, that Microsoft is working in changing the icons. These are probably the target style.

We can also notice that it looks like Win9 will no borderless windows look, which is nice, in my opinion.

We see the multiple virtual desktop switch from the shots above. This was a detail previously leaked. Now we have a screen shot.

Storage Sense

Source: http://www.neowin.net/news/windows-9-storage-sense-is-coming-too

It is a feature that was introduced with Windows Phone 8.1 to manage your internal and external (microSD) storage, and gives you a better idea what consumes what.

It looks like it's coming to Windows 9.

 

This feature, which was first made available in Windows Phone 8.1, allows you to easily manage your internal and external (microSD) storage. The feature makes it simple to understand what is filling up your space such as apps, games, videos etc. Simply put, it's a total storage management solution in one app and it looks like it is coming to Windows 9 too.

The feature was spotted in the leaked screenshots from a partner build that was handed out to some folks in Germany. As you can see in the screenshot above, Storage Sense is in the list of options. Windows 8.1 already has Disk Space but we expect Storage Sense to replace this feature and offer up a more robust solution.

Considering that Windows is much more flexible with storage (multiple hard drives, USB drives, SD cards, OneDrive and more), this feature very well may be the best Windows solution yet for managing storage across multiple devices.

Now I think this will be more interesting in tablets than laptops or desktops, as I doubt it will be able to differential Steam games (let's say) and other data. My guess, is that it will show how much space by category Windows 9 Apps takes, and everything at the desktop level (beside pictures/videos/music/etc folders, as that is easy to measure), as "Other", or "Desktop apps", or if it's fancier, separate system files size from "desktop apps"/"Other".

It could also mean that perhaps, Windows 9 will allow you to install Windows 9 Apps on microSD card or SD card that your tablet might support instead of the system drive.

 

edit 5: changed title since more info has been added besides the desktop screnshots

 

edit 6: new notification center video, provide by @GoodBytes

 

edit 7: cortana functionality on windows 9 got leaked

 

the added screenshots in the spoiler show a very early iteration of it, just like everything else mentioned here, atm it seems cortana only supports reminders, no voice functionality or anything else, also it seems it will be integrated into the search function in the task bar,

 

also i expect to have a function to sync between your phone or other windows machines seamlessly, an IMO it would be nice if they release cortana on android and ios

Personally, I think I might ditch Windows (especially if steam takes off on Linux) completely if the start menu is kept.  No company has ever pushed things forward by listening to their customers, only made current iterations better.  I will give Microsoft a chance to explain all this this nonsense, but could find myself going somewhere else.  (Hoping for a whole new OS from another vendor)


Please spend as much time writing your question, as you want me to spend responding to it.  Take some time, and explain your issue, please!

I'm waiting for the care to kick in but it's not happening.

Why is it the OS has to look like that? It's garbage.

It's called in the works.

Icons are are being changed, windows shell is being changed.

If you look at Win7 in development shots, you'll see how ugly it looked. Same for Vista. :)

I'll pick it up to play around in, I like that it has a proper start button again and that metro won't take over my entire monitor when I'm using it.
