New start menu of Windows 10 Anniversary Update revealed

It is known that Microsoft is going to improve the Start menu available in Windows 10. Today, an animation/video of the new Start menu appeared, so we can get a better idea of how it will be in Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Let's discuss it.

Recently, Microsoft announced that the Start menu in Windows 10 Anniversary Update will include a new view - the "All apps" list will take the entire left side of the menu area, and the Settings and Account details will be hidden inside the hamburger button. Jen Gentleman, a Microsoft employee created a GIF animation which demonstrate these changes in action:

This change will reach Windows 10 with the Anniversary Update, which is expected to be released in July 2016. Those who are participating in the Windows Insider program and using Fast Ring builds will get their hands on the Start menu a bit earlier.

  1. Do we know yet if you can change those shortcuts on the left? I have drop-down folders for my most used folders pinned onto my start menu. It’d be a pretty sharp drop in productivity to give that up.
