In fact, Microsoft has started to enable new color icons on Windows 10. At present, users of windows insider have given feedback, which will be the development direction of windows system in the future.
According to the pictures released by these internal users, the icons on the windows 10 start menu, taskbar and boot screen have been updated, and the calculator, alarm, mail and calendar, movie and TV, and recording applications have been updated.
Obviously Microsoft will enable new icons for other core applications, but now it seems that the whole process is carried out in stages, and windows 10x also uses similar icons.
Microsoft has previously publicly stated that it has transformed some new icons for the flow design of windows 10, but the scope is too small. Now they are increasing the scope (redesigning more than 100 product icons), such as including word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, etc.
However, these icons are only applicable to windows insiders running the latest insider build, and the applications involved are limited at present. For example, the windows start logo remains the same. Microsoft may ask insiders to give feedback on these new modern style icons, and may make some small changes based on the feedback, and then push these icons to ordinary users.
Microsoft said that compared with the past design languages,Fluent design tends to be more flat, concise and easy to understand, which was previously reflected in the application icons such as office, outlook, paint and mail, but now Microsoft has made a large-scale unified adjustment of its services and application icons.
