There have been many rumors about the possibility of Windows 12 being released soon, but these mock-ups of various Windows 12 taskbars offer something for everyone.
YouTube video posted on the site Addy Visualizations channel and reported by Neovin, showcases some of the different Windows 12 taskbar designs we may have seen for the alleged new operating system. The video initially introduces the brand new dock-like taskbar, divided into sections for widgets, pins, and quick settings.
And then, interestingly, the video suggests that since users would like to have other choices, Windows 12 may allow us to switch between default, combined, classic or compact views. This is an excellent idea that would meet the needs of many users who need and want different things in their UI.
There have been plenty of other Windows 12 leaks and rumors, including inadvertent ones disclosure from Intel this all confirms that windows 12 is incoming. Is also secret feature in windows 11 which may indicate what Windows 12 may contain when launched. And thanks to XenoPanther, a well-known Windows leak on Twitter, we might even have been one getting Windows 12 tests coming soon via Microsoft Canary.
Bright future possible for Windows 12
Personally, I absolutely love this taskbar concept. This is truly the best rumor to come out in recent weeks, and the only one that makes me excited about what Windows 12 can offer. For example, the redesigned Start menu is a breath of fresh air in terms of simplicity and functionality compared to the convoluted version of the system Windows 11. I also love the redesigned File Explorer which includes a handy drop zone that allows you to temporarily store files and folders.
The concept of a dynamic taskbar that concentrates widgets in one small section on the taskbar makes it seem less cluttered. Even better is the ingenious option to enlarge the same widgets as submenus and even pin them to the desktop by simple drag and drop. Finally, the ability to group apps in a folder that can then be pinned to the taskbar seems like an option we should already be getting for Windows 11.
However, such ideas are something of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, they offer great opportunities for what the next operating system can bring to the table in terms of increased usability. But on the other hand, Microsoft may never give us anything close to what we see here, which inevitably leads us to disappointment when the new operating system actually arrives.
It would be nice if the tech giant listened to the people who use its UI every day for once and gave us an operating system that is functional, consistent, flexible and stable. Even if that’s not what Addy Visuals is proposing, I’d still like Windows 12 to be an actual Windows 11 upgrade in every way.
