Windows 10 Mobile is major improvements with CShell. The company is actually working on full Windows 10 OS for Mobiles with scaled UX. It will be done with new CSHELL, an ‘adaptive shell’ that scale Windows 10 to any form depending on the screen size of the device.
Last week, Microsoft accidentally released a build for Windows 10 Mobile to Windows Insiders in all Rings. The build had given us various traces of CShell ‘s presence on Windows 10. The other part of the Cshell is present in the form of an application appxbundle which also shows the details of the device on which it is stored making it a device specific component.
Cshell would be the successor to ShellExperienceHost, which is present in current Windows 10 operating system. The various components of this shell are the Action Center, the Ink Workspace, the Start menu, pop-ups calendar and clock, etc. This existing ShellExperienceHost is not present in any other Windows family from the Microsoft Ecosystem. CShell will be the major component of Microsoft aspiration of full Windows 10 OS with a UX scaled for Smartphones.
