It’s been a week since Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) unveiled the Windows 10 Technical Preview. Early users have started sending feedback, and they want the software giant to address several issues. Of course, Windows 10 is a huge improvement over Windows 8. But users want to see certain changes before final version of the new OS is unveiled next year.

Can I move or disable the search button?

Paul Thurrott of WinSupersite has compiled a list of most requested feedback. Two requests have received more than 400 votes. One, technical preview version users want the option to move or disable the new search and taskview buttons. This issue has received 415 votes. Two, many users (with 453 likes) want Windows 10 to have a little transition/animation when opening the Start menu.

The third most requested feedback was, “make it easier to use a local account.” It has received 329 votes. However, Thurrott said it was time to enter the 21st century. Windows 10 is probably not for those who can’t handle a connected account, said Thurrott. Adding the tab to File Explorer is the fourth major suggestion with 325 votes. Another 296 engineers have reported that they can’t access charms bar via mouse, making it the fifth most popular suggestion.

Windows 10 may get a notification center down the road

Another 293 people have recommended the software giant to make a beautiful boot screen. Thurrott said the seventh most requested feedback was, “Unable to select multiple tiles when using CTRL.” He didn’t specify how many votes it received. Though Microsoft has brought back the Start menu, it still can’t please everyone. Many users have suggested the company to completely kill the Live Tiles from Start menu.

The Redmond-based company didn’t include a notification center in Windows 10 Technical Preview, Twitter user Adrian has put together a new hack that enables the feature in semi-functional form. According to Neowin, the hack requires you to download a ZIP file with a third-party code and then run the EXE patch. Note that the feature is semi-functional, indicating that Microsoft may add a notification center in Windows 10 before the final version is released.
