    Live Tiles may get removed from Windows 10 Start Menu

    • Windows 10's live tiles could be removed soon as part of a redesign of the Start Menu.
    • A report claims that static icons could replace live tiles in the upcoming Windows 10 20H2 update.
    • We first explored if Microsoft was moving away from live tiles last year when a new Start Menu leaked.

    The upcoming Windows 10X operating system features a redesigned Start Menu and static icons rather than live tiles. Now, it seems that Windows 10 might receive a redesign in the same direction. A report from Windows Latest states that Microsoft is planning to replace live tiles within the Start Menu. The move would line Windows 10 up with Windows 10X and allow Microsoft to use its redesigned icons in Windows 10's Start Menu...

    If the rumours are believed to be true, ... Microsoft is planning to replace live tiles with icons in a future update after Windows 10’s 20H2 release.

    I hope not. There’s not much I like about Windows 10 when compared to 7. But live tiles is one thing I do think looks good. Seems like a backward step

    I personally like the live tiles (especially Photos and News) and would at minimum like to at least have the option to enable them if Microsoft proceeds with planned removal.

    Won't matter to me. I deleted them all long ago. If Windows starts putting large icons where the tiles were, I'll delete them too.

    I for one welcome this change. Nothing more distracting from what actually one needs to do. the nett change over the years will be: no change actually .

    Just thinking about all this effort wasted over the years...

    On the day of release, the first thing i installed on Windows 10 was the Start Menu replacement, Start10. I haven't seen a single Tile since and hope i never will again.

    OMG what's a girl supposed to? Microsoft is like a bully who keeps stealing your lunch money, take, take, take.

    why call it Windows, it should be called Dumbows, it has been dumbed down so much.

    Microsoft must be taking a page from Henry Fords book. “A customer can have a car painted any color he wants as long as it’s black”
