Easy mode for the system interface

A simpler alternative interface could be great for a wide range of groups. People who encounter barriers with understanding or remembering complex interfaces, children, even some people with motor or vision impairment would benefit from simpler navigational structure. Access only to the core content items that they need to access, without being able to get lost in menu options that aren’t relevant to them.

This already exists on other platforms. One example is the easy mode found on Asus smartphones, which gives you a single fixed simplified interface. But some Doro phones go further and allow any section of the interface to be turned on or off per the capabilities and interests of each user; for example being able to turn off sections of the top nav to remove complexity for people who don't use TV or social.

        Xbox One current menu feels so akward, it is so goofy in my opinion. So many options for what? I mean, yes, people like options but this is just too cluncky and meaningless customization... Just give me some **** nice looking simple menu, with the games and apps I recently used, let me put all the marks I want, and don't bring more stupid buttons to the screen like: Groups (why in the **** I need to see that? I have a controller with buttons, I don't need to see it on screen) Make it clean! Hire some actual UX designers and graphic designers. This looks done by IT with no knowledge on design and no taste. Simple, faster, more fluid... Come on! You are Microsoft ! Not a cheesy chinese company, geezes!
