The Xbox user interface has had many iterations over the years as Microsoft worked effortlessly to perfectly craft the ultimate dashboard experience. Yet there’s still improvements many fans would love to see come to systems and one fan has proposed those in a mock-up image.
One of the most notable inclusions is the Quick Resume icon on tiles on the dashboard, alerting players as to which games are currently running in the background. The apps have been designed to be interchangeable, too. Other inclusions consist of a setting icon in the top left and the tabs being at the top of the screen instead of down the side.

The Quick Resume feature is definitely something we’d love to see as it can be fairly annoying to see what you have running in the background. We’ve lost count of the amount of times we’ve opened games and found they’ve been in Quick Resume for weeks. Fortunately, Microsoft has already acknowledged it is listening to fan requests on the UI, with more updates expected in the coming months.
