Windows 10 Build 10036 features notable changes to the UI

New screenshots of Windows 10 Build 10036 have leaked to the internet which showcase some changes which should be visible in the upcoming build for Insiders. The major change (but not the only one) is the network selection pane is now more compact compared to Windows 8/8.1. However, it is created in Metro/Modern style and is probably built on the WinRT/Modern apps API. Let's see what else has changed.

The network flyout pane lists the available networks and allows you to connect/disconnect from them. In Windows 8, this flyout occupied the entire height of the screen and covered the notification area as well. Now it is much more compact.

As you can see, it still is touch friendly, and has a flat appearance.

From the screenshot above, you can see another change: Windows Defender icon is back in the notification area.

The Aero Peek button is visible again at the far end of the taskbar:

That's it. Microsoft continue their work on Windows 10. I guess we can expect a new build very soon (via Neowin).
