    Microsoft yet to address context menu inconsistency issue

    Microsoft tried to tweak Windows 10 in such a way that it would be capable of offering a fresh feeling everywhere you look, so the company redesigned the key features of the operating system, seeking the modern interface that everyone seems to like.

    But in its struggle for a more modern look, Microsoft indirectly caused a high level of inconsistency across the operating system, and living proof is none other than the traditional context menu.

    The screenshot you see here was posted on reddit, and perfectly illustrate the fact that Microsoft seems to have a context menu problem, as the design is different in almost every single part of the OS.

    Probably because the Start Menu and Taskbar is coded in XAML, while the others still have Win32 integration of some sort or another.

    No big deal. Microsoft will fix it along with fixing the themes.

    For example, in File Explorer alone, Microsoft uses three different context menu styles,
    I would certainly hope so. Three different locations that the context menu does three different things. Would probably look like crap and be confusing as heck if they merged all three of those together.

    Then again so go out of there way to find problems where none exist.

    I can't help but feel sorry for people confused by "inconsistent context menus." I mean, it doesn't take much, does it?....

    Windows 10 clearly was not designed from the ground up, it's like a mix and match
