Neowin writes Microsoft is expected to show off a bunch of new consumer features of Windows 10 in the first Consumer Preview of the OS in early 2015. This build is expected to debut the new start screen, a full version of Continuum, Cortana for desktop, and more.
Winbeta adds to that list by mentioning Live Tiles on the desktop, a feature we’ve been asking for but which hasn’t showed up until now. According to this report Live Tiles will work exactly the way you’d expect, with users being able to drag them to their workspace and then they’d act similar to the way widgets used to.
Of course we’ll also get to finally see Internet Explorer 12, with its simplified UI, as well as further improvements to the Notification Center and a much more unified UI – aka Vista icons will be gone forever.
