    Hands-on with Windows 10X: New Action Center, Start Menu and more


    Microsoft’s plan for Windows 10X development had already been derailed in 2020, but now it looks like the company is finally ready to launch the operating system. That means we’ll have to wait until Spring 2021 before we can see the OS on an actual device from Microsoft partners, such as Dell and Lenovo.

    As we move closer to the launch, we keep getting glimpses and teasers of what the future might look like for Windows. Today, we got hands-on time with the latest RTM candidate for Windows 10X, which was leaked online earlier today.

    The very first thing you do upon booting Windows 10X is creating a Microsoft account if you don’t have one already. In Windows 10X, Microsoft account is a requirement and users cannot configure a local account.

    Once signed-in, the world of Windows 10X is now open to you with a blank desktop, a centred taskbar with three different sizes: small, medium and large.

    Windows 10X uses components from both web and WinUI, which makes the operating system look overly different compared to the current Windows 10 experience. For example, Action Center has been completely redesigned in Windows 10X.

    New Action Center in Windows 10X


    Microsoft has also removed ‘system tray’ from the taskbar and Action Center can now be used to change the volume and brightness.

    Volume and brightness controls are at the top, while the quick settings for Bluetooth, WiFi and Power are in the middle, which you can customize by right-clicking on the icon.

    The approach is very much like ChromeOS and Microsoft has also removed the legacy components from Windows 7-era. This means you cannot access the Registry Editor, Group Policy Editor, Control Panel, Windows Run and Task Manager too.

    File Explorer


    With Windows 10X, Microsoft is developing a new modern File Explorer and it appears to be based on React Native. By default, File Explorer has been designed for browsing your OneDrive files, but you can also browse your local storage, and sync files between your local and online storage.

    The new File Explorer looks familiar because it’s based on the OneDrive website and it uses web components with Windows 10 integration.

    Consistent design language


    The entire UI is designed from the ground up and Microsoft is maintaining a single consistent design language across the operating system.

    It’s also full of round corners and web controls, which means you’re going to find visual appealing Fluent Design on the Start Menu and Action Center.

    Goodbye live tiles


    Live Tiles have been a part of the Windows desktop experience since Windows 8 and Windows 10X has now proclaimed the death of Live Tiles in favour of static icons.

    Start Menu in Windows 10X is similar to Microsoft Launcher for Android and it will display app icons in a clean way.

    You can still customize the Start menu and browse the all apps list.

    Disable Action Center in Windows 7?

    Unfortunately that doesn't disable Action Center, all it does it cause Acution Center to bitch about the Security Center service not running.

    Action Center seems to be a different beast from Security Center...

    And telling it to not display any messages gets it out of the way, the same way disabling the icon in the suggestions above does, but Action Center is still enabled and running.

    Action Center and Start Menu Continually Fail


    Device: Surface Pro 4
    OS: Fully Updated Windows 10

    Issue: Action Center and Start Menu continually fail.
    Symptoms: After an unpredictable amount of time, Action Center and Start Menu will not open using multiple prompts. Action Center will not respond to taskbar link or swipe from the right and Start Menu will not respond to task bar click or keyboard button.

    Troubleshooting:
    • I have done several SFC scans (the first few found stuff and repaired it and subsequent runs find nothing)
    • I've done the DISM image restore health hocus pocus to no avail.
    • I've executed "Get-AppxPackage | % { Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppxManifest.xml" -verbose }" in an elevated powershell. This works, until it doesn't.
    EDIT: Nothing is working now for troubleshooting. Going to try a restart and see how long until it happens again.


    ​None of these are permanent solutions. Any ideas as what is causing this and how to stop it from happening?
     
  4. Hands-on with Windows 10X: New Action Center, Start Menu and more

    For a new user account, there's no start menu and no action center

    When I create a new user account and sign in to it:

    • Nothing happens when I left-click or right-click the Start button--no menu at all.
    • When I try to open the Action Center, nothing happens; it won't open.

    So, the new user account is unusable.

    This happens when logging in to any new user account I create, not just a particular one.

    Could someone please help?

    Thank you.
