Leaked Windows 9 Screenshots Show New Start Menu with 'Metro-style' Apps

Leaked Windows 9 Screenshots Show New Start Menu with 'Metro-style' Apps

Microsoft's next generation Windows 9 leaked screenshots again revealed the new Start Menu but with different types of "Metro-style" apps pinned to the menu.

Microsoft is said to be working on a new versions of its Windows OS that is expected to ship next year. Microsoft's next desktop operating system is likely to be called Windows 9 upon shipment.

Microsoft has already offered an early look at its future Windows 9's new Start Menu back in April. But now Myce has posted two new Windows 9 screenshots that offer a closer look at the new Start Menu and also show the windowed apps.

The build shown in these two leaked screenshots is 9795. This build is codenamed 'Threshold.' And the development version of the upcoming Microsoft Windows 9 is currently labeled as "Windows 8.1 Pro," as you can see in the below leaked Windows Threshold screenshot

July 13th is the compilation date of the build #9795 which is a part of the uip_dev FBL. UIP stands for User Interface & Platform while FBL stands for feature build lab. Basically the uip_dev FBL is the lab which is responsible for "UX changes like the start menu and windowed apps plus some under the hood kernel changes."

The above leaked screen shot offers a closer look at the new Windows 9 Start Menu which is not much changed from that which Microsoft showed off back in April. However, this fresh leaked screenshot also shows different types of 'Metro-style' apps along with the traditional app. And these 'Metro-style' applications are pinned to the new Start Menu.

According to The Verge, these screenshots look genuine and that "in some current development versions of 'Windows 9' the Start Menu expands to maximize the screen and act like the Start Screen found in Windows 8."

Given below is the second leaked screenshot that shows how Microsoft is planning to make these "'Metro-style' apps run in the desktop as windowed or full screen." In fact, Microsoft wants to make its next generation Windows OS more mouse and keyboard friendly especially the desktop version.

Previously rumored Modern UI title bars for Windows 9 are not visible in the above leaked new screenshots. Why? It is because all the features of upcoming Windows OS are not built in a single feature build lab. Different FBLs are developing different features. And when a feature is built completely, it gets "merged into the Winmain branch and then back into the different FBL branches."

 

Microsoft is said to be working on many different products as a part of its Threshold project. And the tech giant is expected to ship the Windows Threshold early next year. Windows Phone and Windows RT combined OS version and Xbox One OS are also expected to ship alongside Windows Threshold.
