Microsoft brings Aero Glass back to Windows 10

Last week, it emerged that Microsoft is planning a series of improvements to the user interface in Windows 10, including an Aero Glass blur effect for the universal applications that will be first incorporated into Redmond applications and then available for rest of developers.

Aero

Early previews already look good and confirm that the Windows user interface is evolving, but at the same time, it is more interesting to note that some of the improvements that the company plans for future Windows OS upgrades are based on requests from the user community.

The blur optical effect was an essential feature of Aero Glass in Windows 7 and its removal was highly controversial in Windows 8, the first operating system to signal Microsoft's migration to a flat user interface.

But with future updates for Windows 10, microsoft will bring back one of the features that people liked in earlier releases of the operating system and which continue to demand it particularly these days.

Back in the days when UserVoice was the feedback platform of choice for Windows, a suggestion to bring back Aero Glass had more than 43.000 votes from users who wanted this feature to return to Windows 8. The application received more votes with the release of Windows 10 and is still popular these days.

Only in the Feedback Hub, there are dozens of applications for the effects of Aero on Windows 10, including blur effects, with Microsoft providing the following answer:

"Because of your enthusiasm for Aero Glass. As we mentioned in the Made by You article on Shell improvements, as a result of your feedback many of our features now support transparency. This can be done by turning on the Features> Custom> Colors> feature. If you want to see this transparency light in more features, please log in or press + 1 on the feedback requests for the feature you would like to see support ".

Blur effect on Windows 10 is predicted to see daylight with the release of Redstone 3 update in the fall, but since work on it is still in its early days, many could change in the meantime, so do not hold your breath waiting for this feature.
