The new design somewhat resembles the "Start" menu in Windows 10X and Microsoft Launcher on Android.

Currently, all programs in the "Start" menu on Windows 11 are displayed in a vertical list, organized alphabetically - however, Microsoft is testing a new design that may arrange them in a grid layout (in the beta version of build 22635.3420).

The website WindowsLatest, which tested the design, says that it looks cleaner and more organized, offering better use of screen space. You will also see a larger number of programs in front of you without scrolling down each time in search of what you need (however, if you use too many programs, the screen may look overloaded and it may be difficult to spot something among them).

It is unknown whether Microsoft will offer a switcher for layouts (as was the case in Microsoft Launcher for Android) if the updated interface is introduced.

According to a survey by Neowin, in October 2023, the grid layout of the "Start" menu was among the top 10 most desired updates among Windows 11 users.

Thanks, your opinion accepted.
