Windows 10X Windows 10X Icon is going to be an operating system developed by Microsoft as part of the Windows NT family. It was officially unveiled and announced on October 2, 2019, as a dual-screen device operating system. On May 4, 2020, it was announced that Windows 10X will also support single display devices.

It would be released around 2020-2021. Its design is really similar to the Windows 10 update 2004 that came out.

Unlike other windows builds, Windows 10X is stripped of legacy components which allows for much better performance. Legacy apps run in an emulator.

The only way to access Windows 10X is to install its image file and Microsoft Emulator from the Microsoft Store.
