Microsoft is planning a design refresh for Windows 10

Microsoft Windows 10 OS is undoubtedly the preferred choice for personal OS by many. With the very famous Windows 7, Microsoft established dominance over the PC operating system market. Since its Windows 10 launched, Microsoft has completely revamped its operating system’s looks and features.

But since then, Windows 10 hasn’t received any changes in its UI. All the major updates of the company have been focused on improving the functionality and fixing security issues. Microsoft, however, did slightly redesigned its start menu and made it easier to apply themes. The company has finally declared that it will be adding more design changes with its 2021 update.

Sources reported that “Microsoft is planning to update many top-level user interfaces such as the Start menu, Action Center, and even File Explorer, with consistent modern designs, better animations, and new features. Internal documentation describes the project as ‘reinvigorating’ and modernizing the Windows desktop experience to keep up with customer expectations in a world driven by other modern and lightweight platforms.”

The refreshment of UI, which Microsoft is planning, is codenamed as the “Sun Valley.” It is expected to be introduced along with Windows 10 Cobalt, which is the 2021 H2 update.

Panay, the in-charge of the windows development division, stated, “I’m very excited to lead the Windows Client for Microsoft. Which will help us streamline our decision-making processes, be clear on our priorities, and deliver the best end-user experiences from silicon through operating systems across all Microsoft apps and service-connected devices (OEMs and Surface).”

ZDNet adds to this information, saying that internally Microsoft engineers have been describing the 21H2 (aka “Cobalt”) release as Windows 10++, which means there are some big plans for the next fall update.

Part of Windows 10 that is expected to be redesigned include:

  • Start menu
  • Action Center
  • Better dark mode support
  • Updated Taskbar
  • New design for File Explorer
  • “Fluid experiences” for tablets
  • Keyboard and emoji improvements
  • Overall consistent look and feel

It is no way means that Microsoft is releasing a new Windows 10. instead, it merely means that the world’s most used notebook operating system is finally getting a design overhaul.
