Windows 10’s resizable Start menu is coming your way

Windows 10 is set to arrive this summer, and leaked screenshots have suggested you could soon be getting an early look at the platform’s resizable Start menu.

Posted online by WinSuperSite, the series of images appear to confirm that the resizable Windows 10 Start menu will be introduced as part of the next Technical Preview – build 10056.

The third of a series of four images on the site shows the Windows Start menu in its traditional bottom left-hand corner of the screen. The fourth, however, reveals a full-screen Start menu, offering up all the same options.

Interestingly, the power button has been relocated to the bottom left corner of the start menu, sitting just above the Windows icon.

The next instalment of the Windows 10 Technical Preview will introduce further aesthetical changes too.

The famous old Recycle Bin looks set for a facelift, though we’re not sure it’s for the better. The new rubbish bucket is still grey, but it’s more angular and 3D-looking than the one we’re used to.

The screengrabs also show off a revamped style overlay dialogue in the advanced settings page, hinting that all dialogue confirmation boxes will be treated to the new design.

We already know that Windows 10 will feature Cortana, Task View and Project Spartan, the much-anticipated Internet Explorer replacement.

Though we’ve still got a little while to wait until its formal release, you can actually already download and play around with the Technical Preview, though it’s set to shut down on April 15.

The full-blown OS will come as a free upgrade to current Windows users, at least during the first year of release.
