Microsoft has been working on a major revision of the user interface (UI) for Windows 10. It has not been officially released yet, but a recent Windows blog provided a lot of details about a preview version of the next update.
One of the most notable changes from the preview version has to do with the icons. The UI overhaul will alter the icons in areas like the Start menu and the Settings app, giving them a “more rounded and streamlined look.”
The preview version of the user interface review also showed the new look of the Windows 10 taskbar. It features a more colorful design along with some updates on how the “See more news” function works.
Users will now be able to see a preview of what is written in the articles, instead of just the headlines. This is thanks to the larger cards in the new design.
There are also a number of other known fixes and issues with this preview build, so if you’re curious you can take a look at the full list in the Windows Blog.
This hotfix is rolling out first to Windows Insiders in the US It will gradually become available for other markets over time, so don’t worry if you can’t seem to access the update here in Canada in the near future.
