'Say goodbye to the blocky Window 10 Start Menu tiles with colored backgrounds and hello to partially transparent theme-aware tiles that look so much nicer.
Earlier this year, Microsoft revealed a sneak peek of the changes they were exploring with the Windows 10 Start Menu and the use of transparent tiles rather than ones with a solid background.
With today's Windows 10 Insider build 20161, Microsoft has finally unveiled the new Start Menu and its transparent tiles.
"We are freshening up the Start menu with a more streamlined design that removes the solid color backplates behind the logos in the apps list and applies a uniform, partially transparent background to the tiles. This design creates a beautiful stage for your apps, especially the Fluent Design icons for Office and Microsoft Edge, as well as the redesigned icons for built-in apps like Calculator, Mail, and Calendar that we started rolling out earlier this year."

Trying to think who it was that said transparency in Windows is in the past & old hat, this was when Windows 8 was released ... Thinking hard ... Oh yes I remember Microsoft :unsure::unsure::unsure: The new Start Menu wont really affect me as I always use a replacement (Start 10, Start Is Back etc)
