The release of the Windows 10 Preview some time ago revealed some of the features that Microsoft plans to integrate in the upcoming operating system.
Probably the biggest feature is the redesigned start menu that mixes traditional desktop programs with Start application tiles.
There are other features of note, a new virtual desktop manager for example, the ability to run apps in windows or improvements to the command prompt.
It is not clear if there will be more, even though it is very likely that Microsoft will integrate additional features in the operating system before it is officially released.
Note: Windows 10 has been released, and Microsoft has disabled public access to the community site.
Microsoft has created a company presence on Uservoice and it has been up for some time. Users can suggest, discuss and vote for new features on the site, and while there is no guarantee that any of the suggestions will find their way into the operating system; what users want integrated is interesting nevertheless.
Here are the top 20 suggestions at the time of writing
You can check out other suggestions, there are a lot, on the Uservoice website.
Some suggestions propose that Microsoft updates native programs. The top request is to add tabs to Windows Explorer, another to improve the Notepad application and a third to modernize Internet Explorer's plugin system.
A second group of suggestions deals with visual changes, for instance to bring Aero back or to customize the login screen.
And a third group wants improvements to Windows 8+ features such as the start screen.
What about you? Is there something that you want changed, added or removed in Windows 10? If so, what it is?Advertisement
