Microsoft bills Windows 10 as the largest ever open collaborative development effort, and it is easy to see why. Windows 10 features will only be finalized after user feedback is taken into account.
At least, that’s the plan.
Even the recently released preview build of the operating system asks for user feedback every step of the way, and Microsoft has received thousands of suggestions from people that have deployed this early version of Windows 10.
Wouldn’t it be great to see what these feature requests are?
Paul Thurrott has posted a list of the most requested options and bug requests that users have submitted to Microsoft through the feedback forms. This does not mean the software titan will implement all of them, but here they are:
- Let us move or disable the new search and/or taskview buttons.
- Add a little animation/transition when opening the Start menu.
- Make it easier to use a local account.
- Add tabs to File Explorer.
- Can’t access Charms.
- Make a beautiful boot screen.
- Unable to select multiple tiles when using CTRL.
- Complete the transition from the Control Panel to PC Settings.
- Complete updating icons.
- Allow specific background images and folders on each virtual desktop.
Some of these features are now, a few of them old and people have been asking Microsoft to implement them for ages now (tabs for File Explorer and new icons).
These requests have been collected and tallied using script based analysis, and comprises of feedback the software titan received the past week. A lot more will surely be coming, but it is great to see the community actively engaged in the development process.
Fingers crossed Microsoft manages to take care of as many of these as possible.
