Windows 10X is a special version of Windows 10 and is currently in development. It is designed for terminals with two screens, such as the future Surface Neo, and low-power PCs. Today we have a very small preview of the OS.
Windows 10X is long overdue. This special version of the OS was announced in 2019 to accompany the Surface Neo, which is now missing. But it’s still in development for other dual-display PCs, as well as low-power single-screen machines. We have today a first glimpse of what awaits us.
Zac Bowden, from the Windows Central site, posted a first image of the OS. Here we can see the desktop and we note an interesting thing: the icons are centered on the taskbar, which is always present. The Start menu is also placed in the middle, thus accompanying the other icons. It should be noted that this overview concerns the “Single Screen” version of the OS.

The image shows the Start menu open on the desktop. We notice that this one is reviewed and corrected, presenting itself as a central window reminiscent of the Android application drawer. A way to better comply with the touch, somewhat neglected by Windows 10. Here we find all the flagship applications of Microsoft, such as Edge, Outlook or the Microsoft Store. A search bar appears at the top.
Release scheduled for 2021
Windows 10X has been very discreet so far, but is starting to leak a bit here and there. Zac Bowden’s screenshot isn’t the only preview we get. Indeed, Alumia Italia also shared an interesting little thing, sincethis is the OS boot menu. Animation was introduced with Build 20279.1002.
Windows 10X will be an OS intended for both low-power PCs and PCs with dual displays. At the moment, the operating system is still scheduled to be released later this year on specially designed computers. No doubt many more previews will be available by then.
