The October 2020 Update for Windows 10 will be a small release and won’t add any interesting new features this year.
However, if you still join the Windows Insider program, you will soon be testing many new features.
There have been many rumors that Microsoft is improving the user interface on Windows 10 and this rumor has finally come true. In recent preview builds, Microsoft has brought a few new features to the desktop.
Microsoft is currently internally testing two new features called Desktop Spotlight and the Theme Self-aware App Start Screen.
One of the easiest ways to improve the old Windows 10 screen is to change the wallpaper as you like. Windows 10 now lets you download theme packs from the Microsoft Store, use photos from your library, and create slideshows (slideshows) with your own photos or download wallpapers.
You can easily set up custom images, but the slideshow creation process will be quite time consuming because you have to use it manually.
With the Desktop Spotlight feature, it will display beautiful Bing images as a slideshow. This feature is currently exclusive to the lock screen but will soon support desktop as well.
You can enable the Desktop Spotlight feature by going to Settings> Personalization> Wallpaper and choose Spotlight Collection in the Background drop-down menu. After enabling this feature, the computer will create a slideshow using beautiful pictures from Bing on the desktop.
Microsoft is expected to bring this feature to Windows 10 later this year.
The application start screen identifies the theme
This feature will appear when starting UWP applications. For example, you will see a splash screen that recognizes new themes when you launch applications such as Microsoft Store, Groove Music, Settings, …
Currently the splash screen focuses only on the main Windows 10 colors and the application logo in the middle. But next time it will change a little.
Specifically, in upcoming releases, the splash screen will automatically detect the theme that the user is applying is Light or Dark to display the screen in accordance with that theme. This will make the experience when opening the app more consistent.
Microsoft has now turned on this feature to automatically identify the theme for the Live Tiles in the Start Menu and will soon be the user’s favorite applications. This feature is expected to be released to users soon in the latest Windows 10 updates.
