Minus Windows 8: Windows 11 UI is getting more consistent


Windows 11 is all about having a consistent user interface, and for this reason it’s increasingly ditching elements from Windows 8. The first is the “Open With” user interface, whose deprecated design language comes from Windows’ touch-optimized tile operating system. Microsoft from 2012 and will soon be replaced.

Windows 11 breaks away from legacy issues

I like the site Windows latest it was first reported, the latest Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25151, which was published on the Dev Channel, which is mainly aimed at developers and experienced users, hides the hidden function of changing “Open with” in the context menu to the design language Windows 11

The new view was already briefly rendered in Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22563, which previewed Windows 11 22H2 in February. Even in the latest preview, the uniform look and feel is still not offered to all testers, making Windows 11 23H2 more likely a candidate for deployment.

The basic requirements to use the new view are the current Windows 11 Insider Preview 25151 and the small Live Tool v0.3.1 (ZIP)which is offered directly through the GitHub development platform.

“Open with” with new user interface
  • Download Vive Tool → Unzip File
  • Right click inside the folder → Open in Windows Terminal

Then simply enter the following commands through the terminal prompt:

  • vivetool /enable/id:36302090

The new view is immediately visible after selecting “Open with” from the context menu and fits harmoniously into the Windows 11 user interface.

Microsoft still has a lot of work to do

After Microsoft once again changed the UI and thus the UX of the OS with the switch from Windows 10 to 11, countless generations of designs can now be found on and below the OS UI.

Microsoft still has a lot of work to do to give Windows 11 a really cohesive and consistent UI and UX design.

In the area of ​​icons and command prompts, in particular, there are still legacies that are still in use today going back to the days of Windows 9x and even Windows 3.x. Users who want to convince themselves of this should take a look below. %SystemRoot%\System32\SHELL32.dll recommended.

Windows 11 brings many legacies with it
