Microsoft to update Windows 10 Preview with new animations

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft has already confirmed that a new Windows 10 Preview build would be released very soon and even though the company hasn't provided any specifics on this updated version, new information reveals that some of the improvements could be based on user feedback.

One of the most requested features after the release of Windows 10 Preview was the introduction of new animations in the operating system, especially for the Start menu, with many users asking the company to implement some sort of fade in/fade out effect when opening it.

It turns out that Microsoft has received this message and is now working to reply with an update in this regard, with a new report via Neowin confirming that the next Windows 10 Preview build would bring new animations.

No other specifics have been provided until now, as Microsoft struggles to keep all details behind the closed doors, but at least we know that an improved user interface is very likely to be implemented.

The original build of Windows 10 Preview already comes with a notification center, but this isn't turned on by default and Microsoft locked all of its features to make sure that testers cannot use it.

The most likely reason for this decision was the fact that the notification center was just work in progress, but it appears that development has advanced really well and Microsoft is finally ready to make this feature available to those who download and install the upcoming testing release.

Not much is known about this improved version of the notification center, but given the fact that it's still in development, don't be too surprised if Microsoft actually decides to keep it locked for a little bit longer until more features and options are completed.

Even though Microsoft will ship a completely new build of Windows 10 Preview, no clean install would be required, as the company implemented a new update system that takes care of everything.

A small registry hack that allowed users to see the next Windows 10 Preview build recently reached the web, but Microsoft warned that those who apply it won't receive any updates for their testing machines.

As a result, everyone is recommended to disable the registry tweaks they made in Windows 10 Preview as soon as possible in order to make sure that new updates are delivered to their computers as well when they become available for the general public.
