[Exclusive] Windows 9 Start Menu Screenshot Leaked




The first screenshot allegedly showing a Windows 9 build reached the web, but little is still known about the operating system that's expected to hit the market in early 2015.


Now a new screenshot published on MDL and brought to our attention by Twitter user Subaru2012 appears to be showing the new Start menu, which is set to return in Windows 9 and not in Windows 8.1 Update 2 as it was initially believed.

Of course, nobody can guarantee that this screenshot is real or fake, but as you can see for yourselves by zooming in, the Start menu clearly matches the design shown by Microsoft at the BUILD 2014 conference in April.

At that time, Microsoft said that the Start menu would return in another Windows 8.1 update, most likely Windows 8.1 Update 2 which is expected to debut sometime next month. People close to the matter however said that Redmond actually decided to delay this critical moment until Windows 9 comes out in April 2015, so Windows 8 and 8.1 users won't have a Start menu unless they decide to upgrade.

The new Start menu, which according to this screenshot has been implemented in build 9788, mixes traditional elements seen in Windows 7 with modern design cues belonging to Windows 8, such as live tiles.

Of course, it also provides easy access to power options, which could clearly fight confusion and help users control their computers easier. It's a well-known fact that many Windows 8 adopters had problems when trying to perform basic tasks such as shutting down or rebooting PCs, so the new Start menu would clearly tackle this problem.

Microsoft doesn't talk about its future projects and we should clearly take all of these with a pinch of salt until we actually get a leaked ISO that allows us to try out an early Windows 9 build by ourselves and see what it brings new. If this screenshot is real, it's hard to believe that a Windows 9 ISO is far from getting leaked, but at the moment we have absolutely no other option than to wait.

Microsoft's WPC 2014 conference kicks off later today and according to some people close to the company's plans, some Windows 9 information might also be disclosed, even though Windows 8.1 Update 2 is ready to be unveiled next month. We'll keep you up to date as more information emerges.

Well this genuine imo, I can't put my promise on that but my community friends vouch for it too.

I think this will get some people like our @vijayninel back to Windows, as Windows 8 and 8.1 (my present system) is superb and I love using it.
this will be better than that too so it will be more positive...

Waiting for my email to download it

Re: [Exclusive] Windows 9 Start Menu Screenshot Leaked

I think the start menu is coming back but im not so sure that this is the final version. @ManISinJpr its not just the start menu that they are changing, but the tiled Metro UI is going away from desktops too. Microsoft has capitulated on this one, but lets see what more changes are there.

No the new thing is that Window's will not have the "Aero" 3D effects and instead will have a flat "modern" effects. Besides that you assesment is spot on. As of now I plan to use Win 7 till 2020 when the support officially ends.

I will upgrade to W9 for sure. Got bored of W7, want some change. The start menu looks good enough for me, and with metro UI removed there is nothing to complain about.

I am also going to use it till it dies on me,just like XP . Windows 8 and 8.1 were not that good as per my perspective.
