Microsoft is looking for feedback on some coming Start menu changes in Windows 10

Microsoft will be updating the All Apps list in the Start menu in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, but this time around they’re proactively seeking feedback. (Instead of just making a change, registering all the complaints, and then changing it again.) So they’ve created a Sway where you can view the proposed changes and vote on which you like best.

Now that you’ve seen our vision for the all apps list, side by side with the current experience, let us know what you think! Head back to the Feedback Hub and click DONE to get your Quest credit and launch the survey to share your opinions 🙂

Gabe Aul thanks Windows Insiders

And speaking of Windows 10 and feedback, Microsoft’s Gabe Aul has created a short video thanking Insiders for their help improving Microsoft’s flagship OS.

Via Twitter:

A big thanks to Windows Insiders from @GabeAul and watch @ch9 for all things #build2016
