Microsoft Releases New Windows 10 Icons For Insider Users

Without a doubt, Microsoft will also release other icons to complete the entire pack makeover, but for now it appears the whole thing takes place in stages.

The new designs, based on Microsoft's Fluent design language, have an animated, 3D appearance along with more vivid colors compared to the previous ones, which were flat and tiresome.

Microsoft has begun offering its new application icons to Insider users, created to bring the Windows 10 operating system to a modern look.

Kaspersky has put the blame squarely on Microsoft after a recent Windows 10 update (KB4524244) meant to further protect against an attack that exploited a vulnerable version of the Kaspersky Rescue Disk software has caused more system crashes.

Microsoft previously revised the Office icons and design for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.

This all ties into Microsoft's Fluent Design language. We are beginning to roll them out to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring first, starting today.

Windows 10 is getting an overdue (and weird) makeover

You can find out more about the new icon designs here. However, with hundreds of icons still to change, we are seeing a problem.

As with all Microsoft rollouts, not everyone will see these new icons at the same time but should begin to see them over the next couple of days. We certainly prefer them to the rather bland two-tone icons which are now in Windows 10.

The result is a jagged visual experience on Windows 10.

The updated icons show up in the Windows 10 Start menu, the taskbar, and the splash screen, according to AL, and target apps like the Calculator, Alarms, Mail and Calendar, Film And TV, and the voice recorder app.

In some cases, the changes in design are very subtle. "Over the coming months, Insiders will see more of the icons in Windows 10 get updated with new designs", Microsoft said.
