Microsoft has accidentally leaked an internal document for the new upcoming Windows 10X, which was teased some days ago.
Windows 10X Leak
Microsoft had so far only officially confirmed Windows 10X would be available on foldable and dual-screen devices, with tweaks to both the Start Menu and taskbar. Still, it’s clear the company now has plans to bring those changes to typical laptop hardware.
This leak came into light when a twitter account called Walking Cat posted a link that showed some documentation that was supposed to be internal.

Microsoft in Windows 10X refers to the Start Menu as the Launcher, which has a stronger emphasis on local search: Search is seamlessly integrated with web results, available apps, and specific files on your device say the document. Recommended content is dynamically updated based on your most frequently and recently used apps, files, and websites.
Windows 10X will also improve the Windows Hello facial recognition authentication experience. The screen will turn on immediately without any lock curtain if the device will instantly recognize the user and will quickly transition to their desktop.
Microsoft is also reworking the Action Center and quick settings in Windows 10X. This will make it quicker to access critical device settings, and prioritize showing important ones like battery life. Windows 10X will also support customization here, but Wi-Fi, cell data, Bluetooth, airplane mode, rotation lock, and projection are all quick default settings.
It’s also worth mentioning that the bundled Office apps such as Word and PowerPoint will be the PWA versions wrapped in a UWP wrapper, meaning they will be native to Windows 10X. Users will, of course, be able to download the Win32 versions of Office if they need it.
From this leak, there has been no information about the release date or the system requirements. Seeing the leak, a release is imminent and will be a better version of Windows 10.
