A look at what ‘windows 9’ will look like. No major change, just refinement. This one is the desktop version but with some tile integration.
Tiles get added to your start screen which can be seen in desktop view and not its own transported fullscreen window when in “All Apps” View.
Above is the all apps view. This is the more traditional look perhaps.
The option is there to have either the start screen or the layout above.
Either way, tiles can be a part of what you see.
It also has a ‘mac like’ multi desktop. This isn’t having two things on screen at the same time but having different desktops to flip and choose from so I can have full screened windows of Word and a full screen of chrome/PDF etc and switch between them (OSX’s mouse gestures helps a lot, not sure what Windows will have)
Before getting a mac, I had apps that replicated this function so I kept clutter/work/games on different desktops.
Whilst the windows items are different, the icons on the desktop remain regardless of what desktop you pick
If an app that you’re using is open on a different desktop, instead of moving it to the one you’re at, you’ll flip to that desktop with the rest of the other apps that might be open on that page.
There’s possibly a bigger all in one view to show all that’s running. I’m not quite sure.
If you’re only using the one desktop, a big bar at the bottom gives you the option to add more.
Like in WP, new toast notifications pop up at the top. In this case, top right. These are then collected at a notifications panel on the bottom right.
