Microsoft Previews New Windows 10 Icon Design

Windows 10 is getting an overdue (and weird) makeover

Microsoft launches new colorful Windows 10 icons

These icons will be phased in over the next couple of months through app updates via the Microsoft Store and via release previews of Windows 10.

Microsoft has come under fire several times lately for using ancient icons in Windows 10, some of them even dating back to the Windows 98 era, but it looks like this isn't something that only the Redmond-based software giant does in an operating system.

Microsoft today announced the release of Windows 10 Preview Build 19569.1000 for Insiders in the Fast ring. It's a part of what the corporate describes as a "multi-year effort throughout Microsoft's design groups to revamp our icons".
