With the final version of the Windows 10 Creators Update nearly upon us, a leaked screenshot of a visual revamp of the operating system that’s set to launch later this year, has appeared. This design is among numerous leaked concept screenshots that have popped up online over the last few weeks.
The new Start menu design concept, published by Tom Hounsell on Twitter, has a few subtle differences when compared with Windows 10’s current build. For example, many of the live tiles seem to have a transparency effect applied to them. This is something that according to The Verge, Microsoft has been working on adding to Windows’ Start menu for some time. The screenshot also shows other subtle differences between the concept and the current version, such as minor icon design shifts.

Furthermore, the mail icon at the bottom is all lines now and is no longer coloured in. The File Explore icon is also now on the left side of the Start menu and can be found where other most used applications are located. The user icon has been pushed to the top in the concept design, compared to where it is now directly above the settings and File Explorer icon. It’s also worth noting that Cortana’s icon has been revamped and is much smaller.
It’s important to keep in mind, however, that this screen shot is just a design concept and its possible that it won’t be included in the final version of the Creator update.
