Wzor, the famous leaker from Russia, has published new screenshots of Windows 10 Build 10031. There are small but notable changes to the OS appearance. Let's see what has changed.
The first change is related to the Start button. Unlike the Start button in the currently released Windows 10 build 9926 which is publicly available, the Start button from the leaked images appears to be smaller. It is possible that the smaller button is designed to fit the taskbar when it is resized to a smaller height. Here is how it looks in the current Technical Preview:
And here is how it looks in Windows 10 build 10031:
Another change is that both the Start menu and the Start screen have transparency. It matches the taskbar style which is also transparent. From the picture below you can notice that the Registry Editor window is visible through the Start menu:
Another change in this build is to the out-of-box-experience (OOBE) which is what you see when you set up and login to Windows for the first time. In Build 10031, this loads from the web aka the cloud so Microsoft will be able to update it.
The icons in this build still have the new Windows 10 look and personally, I don't find the overall look attractive:
