It is claimed that Microsoft has offered the next major version of windows With a user interface that features a floating taskbar along with a semi-transparent information bar at the top of the screen.
According to Zach Bowden in Windows Center (Opens in a new tab)The next major version of Windows is called “Next Valley,” and bears the Valley naming convention that began with Windows 11.
An image was shown during a demo in Ignite 2022 (Opens in a new tab)The goal of this design is allegedly to try to better adapt to different devices, such as tablets and mice.
Although Bowden says no code has been finalized toward the next major release, we’re wondering if we’ll see something more definitive in 2023.
Convert it to 12?

I’ve already talked about what I’d like to see in him Windows 12Like the return of MSN Messenger and a dedicated podcast app, but if we already see the concept stages for the next major release, it might just be an evolution of what Windows 11 brought instead.
It makes sense to see the floating taskbar when you are in certain applications, such as Microsoft applications Designer Application and event painting But if this is for Windows 12, let’s go further.
The company also owns committed To a major release every three years, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the next major release shown in late 2023, followed by an Insiders release at the beginning of 2024.
With Apple releasing a major release of macOS Every year since 2012, there’s been pressure on Microsoft to do something similar. However, with Windows reaching millions of devices the company is not responsible for, it’s not realistic to see a major update every year, which is why. “Moment” updates more logical.
It’s a safe bet to imagine 2024 as the date when Windows 12 will arrive, but whether it will include the floating taskbar is another matter.
