Microsoft Makes Changes to Windows 8 After Receiving Feedback During a Developer Preview

After receiving complaints from users regarding Windows 8, Microsoft has finally decided to make the necessary changes.

In a post on the Building Windows 8 blog yesterday, the company acknowledged the fact that it has received plenty of feedback since revealing of developer preview of the OS. The company pledged that they will respond to feedback by introducing a number of changes.

To start, applications displayed on the Windows 8 app screen may now be organised into groups instead of alphabetical arrangements.

The apps display will also be in higher density to include more content within same space.

Enterprise users will be able to customise their companies’ Start screens and also unify them across networks. However, whether administrators will be able to opt out of the software tiles interface in favour of the most requested feature, a more Windows 7-esque desktop app, is still not clear.

To increase the efficiency of its new Star screen, Microsoft is implementing various changes. Hopefully, these changes will improve usability and increase customer satisfaction.
