The latest examples of the appearance of Windows 10 go back to the days of Windows 7, Vista and XP with rounded corners for windows, dialogs and pop-up menus. This customized user interface is part of the Fluent Design transformation.
These are further steps in the overall evolution of the Fluent design language, which has permeated the system and related parts in the last few years. It seems that Microsoft does not want to risk complete changes from day to day and lets users get used to it gradually. Of course, it takes a while to change and unify the user environment.
It has long been argued that a revised Start menu, Event Center, taskbar, or Explorer will arrive, which should also be in the design language mentioned. This goes hand in hand with a redesigned dark mode, which should be much more consistent across the system. Microsoft has been testing several variants of this dark mode for a long time. The Sun Valley (21H2) update, scheduled for the fall of this year, is expected to be the biggest visual change in the history of Windows 10. Before that, the smaller 21H1 update is expected to arrive in the spring, but it is not yet to be the same. an imaginary big change.
Other major aesthetic changes are coming up with Windows 10 application icons. These have also begun to gradually become more colorful and more enjoyable icons. The “tile” base is slowly disappearing and, according to speculation, it is only a matter of time before Microsoft gets rid of the tile completely. We can only hope that attempts at unification will fall on the fertile ground between the Settings application and the popular Control Panels, which, according to users’ opinions, are still not surpassed in terms of practicality.
