Last year, the operating system was given mainly new features, but soon the external railway may come to the fore.
Windows 10 has been on the market for 5 years and Microsoft was in the motto “never change an operating system” so it did not want to change the software. Although the operating system regularly received some new features, they were not significant. This year, however, changes are expected that will mainly affect the exterior of Windows 10.
Redmond developers are working on a modified interface called Sun Valley. The new interface is intended to be a link between Windows 10 and Windows 10X. This means, among other things, that traditional Windows 10 will also have an action center and rounded corners like Windows 10X.
Windows Latest writes that the internal code of the Sun Valley update will be Windows 10 ++ and will be an overwhelming visual refresh for the software. The first versions of Sun Valley are now available, but the new interface is far from complete. There are versions available at Microsoft or some that have been publicly tested. Between the two there is a new prototype interface that rounds the corners of the windows on request. However, RoundedWindowCornersPrototype affects the Start menu, Universal Windows Platform (UWP) applications, and other advanced sites. The developers say that the changes are sophisticated, but impressive and give the operating system a renewed look.
In mid-December 2019, it became known that Microsoft icons and logos were updated. It turns out that Windows Insider participants will first receive the new icons and logos, followed by other users. In the first phase, new icons will be added to Calculator, Groove Music, Mail, Voice Recorder, Clock, Movies + TV and Calendar and new icons for other programs and services will be available later. The Start menu has also become more consistent.
