Microsoft will be naming this new Windows 9, as Threshold, and will be releasing it’s early version to test its different functionality (or one can call it as the beta version) by October. But I have to give credit to WinFuture and ComputerBase to give us the cropped screenshots of Windows 9, that just leave us wanting to see more of it. Nonetheless, we are not being able to it much closer than ever before.
The screenshots showed us how the new Start Menu looks like. And after noticing the different changes, like having quick access to file explorer, documents and pictures (normal stuff), there is a completely new area that shows off the new Microsoft tile style menu with different things like Skype, Music, One Drive, People, News, Microsoft Store, Mail and more.
The focus of these screenshots is on the actual “Windows”, and not those apps that take on the whole screen. In one screenshot we also noticed that there was an option to switch between windowed view, to full screen view. I guess that this will then give us the option to multi-task even better with those windowed views. In another screenshot, we noticed that there was a notification pop-up, and even though there was nothing to notify about, we guess that there will be something in the future for it.
The Verge warns us that this is the much earlier version of the Windows, and we can expect a much different version when it is being released.
Here are all the screenshots:
