About Windows 8 Problems
After months and months of tweaking and releasing updates, it has now become obvious to Microsoft that they have to go back to the old Desktop UI, if they want anyone to buy their next operating system. Of course, the metro UI is great on a small touch screen device like a tablet or a smartphone, but on desktop computers, it was not at all user-friendly.
According to some recent rumors, Microsoft will go back to the Windows 7 model with their next operating system. They have not issued any official statement about this, but these rumors will surely keep the Windows support number lines busy for the time being.
What the next Windows Desktop OS will look like?
To be clear, the Charms bar and most of the Metro UI elements will remain where they are now in the tablet and smartphone versions of Windows 8. Reports say that the next Windows OS for such devices will follow the same interface with some small changes. However, if they are bringing back the full Start Menu in Windows 9, then there will be no need for the Charms bar any more.
The new Charms bar and Start Screen do not seem user-friendly to traditional users at all. When they first received their new laptops, many users even contacted experts over the Windows support number saying there was some error in their new OS, and that they could not find the Start Menu.

Microsoft expected users to get used to the new changes and reluctantly introduced a Start button instead of the full Start Menu in their Windows 8.1 Update. Yet this did not placate the desktop user community either.
Microsoft was wrong in attempting to combine both desktop and touch screen operating systems. These two operating systems are used for different purposes and the needs of users on different devices vary. Thus, the poor sale of Windows 8 led Microsoft to a rethink their strategies.
From the next OS onwards, users can expect to see different versions for different devices. This means that the fully functional Start Menu will be available on the desktop OS versions, where it belongs. At least, that is what it looks like in the leaked screenshots of the next Windows OS. You can connect with experts over the Windows support number for any queries about the next Windows OS, or just wait and watch.
