Microsoft has lost its users to other companies such as Mac due to the poor performance of Windows 8 which was not at all user-friendly, especially for desktop users, as the tile interface introduced in Windows 8 was a big problem. As the desktop users did not have a touchscreen and sliding the mouse to the corners of the screen for simple steps such as shutting down, searching and other activities was a big problem, then Microsoft updated Windows 8 with 8.1 to soothe the users with minor changes.
That might have helped a bit, But the major change done in Windows 8 was eliminating the start screen users were just shocked and wondered where the Start button has gone. This was one of the main reasons why even a normal desktop user was unsatisfied, and they just jumped back to Windows XP.
Some screenshots of Windows 9 preview were released by German blogs show that Microsoft now wants to win the faith of the lost PC users who were highly unsatisfied by the touch screen model tile version of Windows 8. Taskbar not working windows 10. The leaked preview of Windows 9 shows that the “start” button is back and with minor changes to the interface such as adding a web search directly to start button so that a user can search directly for any site from the search button itself without going to a browser or opening Google.
Microsoft wants to release a preview version of Windows 9, codenamed as “threshold,” as a developer preview to acquire the reviews from users first, as this move can be considered as a safety measure to look into the shortcomings in the new operating system.
As we see the “leaked” screens of Windows 9 show the classic “Start” menu with a modern touch, Microsoft hopes it will bounce back with a bang and bring back the loyal users who have left them.
