The Live Tiles feature in Windows 10 was appreciated by many, but Microsoft might make it less prominent. The company is checking out new ways of making the Start menu more accessible and easy on the eyes so they might reduce the colors from the display of apps.

In a podcast with Windows Insider, the spokesperson said that the changes are being made to “visually differentiate the Start menu from something that’s chaotic color to something that’s more uniform.”

Windows 10 introduced Live Tiles in the start-up menu five years ago and gave it a closer resemblance to a Windows phone. But if you have seen the Windows 10X start menu, you already know that they dropped Live Tiles from the start-up menu on dual screens. So, it is quite possible that similar changes are being made on the new menu.

However, a senior programmer on the Windows Insider team, Brandon LeBlanc says, “Live Tiles are not going away, we have not announced anything of the sort. Those that enjoy their Live Tiles will continue to be able to do so.”

However, it does look like that in the future version of Microsoft, Live Tiles will disappear because some built-in Windows applications do not even support it. The final verdict has yet to be reached, but public feedback will play an important role in the decision.

Windows 10X looks nothing like the Windows 10 desktop version anyway. It is similar to a task launcher where you can place documents and move your applications. So basically, the clash with the colorful background made Microsoft take the menu into consideration.

It is safe to say there are many fans of Live Tiles who might support it, but it would be much easier if the Menu bar became simpler and more accessible.
