Windows 10X Gallery: Taskbar and Action Center

Posted on January 17, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10X with 5 Comments

The Windows 10X taskbar is much simpler than in Windows 10, and the Action Center looks almost identical to the similar UI in Chrome OS.

    I don't really understand what Compose Mode is doing besides the display being in a portrait orientation.

    What is 10X’s boot time like? Similar to regular Windows 10?

    I wouldn't mind seeing the new Action Center coming to regular Windows 10. In particular, the addition of a selection button next to the WiFi and Bluetooth buttons means that those options aren't just on/off toggles, which irks me in the regular Windows 10 action center. For me, it's more of an issue for Bluetooth since usually I want to select which BT device to connect to, but that requires that I go into the Settings app since the Bluetooth icon in Action Center only toggles BT on or off.
