Why Windows 10's Latest Update is a Big Fail

Microsoft has begun offering its new application icons to Insider users, created to bring the Windows 10 operating system to a modern look. Some of these icons haven't been updated in the five years Windows 10 has been around, or even longer, so an update was long overdue. But as compared to Windows 10, the X-branded version comes not only with a significantly-improved UI based on a modern design, but also with a refreshed set of icons that's now making its way to Windows 10.

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

To start, the Mail & Calendar, Groove Music, Film & TV, Calculator, Alarms and Voice Recorder icons are getting updated. Specifically, we hope Microsoft can roll out the icons quickly.

Polémique: Koba LaD biffé du Caribana pour homophobie
Le festival basé à Crans-près-Céligny (VD) a écarté le Français pour avoir tenu des propos homophobes sur les réseaux sociaux. Si ces explications ont apaisé certains, d'autres comme les festivals où doit se produire la star ne lui concèdent pas.


And of course, the software giant has remained tight-lipped on the actual rollout of the new icons, so we can't tell for sure when production devices are supposed to get them.

If the new icons have started to push down to your machine, let us know what you think of then. We certainly prefer them to the rather bland two-tone icons which are now in Windows 10. Besides, Windows 10 has plenty of useful features not present in previous versions as Windows 7, or Windows 8.

Microsoft began rolling out the new icons today to testers, so you probably won't see them for a few months.

Hopefully that's the case but Fluent Design evolution has been relatively slow.

"The addition of color also gives a cohesive design language across platforms: the icon that's familiar in Windows 10 is the same on Android, iOS, and Mac, providing a wayfinding path across your digital life", Christina Koehn, Principal Design Director at Microsoft, explained in a blog post.
