Microsoft Windows 10 Users Started Getting New Icons


It’s been a few months since Microsoft first released the latest Windows 10 style icons, as well as different apps.

Now that Windows Insiders have begun the rollout of the latest icons, the organization is allowing others updates to the new versions. For the moment, users operating Windows 10 edition 1909 tend to be impaired, and that ensures they will get new mail, diary, spreadsheet, images, and more software icons.

Back in December, Microsoft clarified the graphical improvements it was planning to create, saying:

With the newest wave of icon redesigns, we faced two major creative challenges. We needed to signal innovation and change while maintaining familiarity for customers. We also had to develop a flexible and open design system to span a range of contexts while still being true to Microsoft.

Originally only people interested in the Insider system had exposure to the latest icons, but, as Techdows stated, the updated design is now distributed to non-Insiders.

Although changes to the Calendar and Mail apps seem to have automatically rolled out to everybody, you’ll need to upgrade the apps through Microsoft Store to see the latest icons for the Calculator and Movies & TV applications.
