Windows 10 will have a new design
Microsoft plans to change the user interface of the Windows 10 with an update coming later in the year. The software giant’s project called Project Neon uses more of the animations and visual blurriness elements of Aero Glass that exist in Windows Vista and Windows 7.
The screenshots from the MSPoweruser site allow us to see the concept ideas that Microsoft has tested. Among the concepts, applications also have the ability to blur navigation areas. It is said that Microsoft will introduce a new component called “Acrylic”. This component, which will span the entire Windows 10 design, will offer a new way for developers to further customize the appearance of universal applications. Project Neon also focuses on Microsoft’s 3D and HoloLens work, playing with the mouse cursor interacting user interface elements.
In fact, many of the changes seem to be small additions that will simplify the Windows 10 design process rather than a comprehensive renewal. Some of Microsoft’s design changes are expected to be elaborated in the Build developers’ conference, which will be held in May, just one month after the Windows 10 Creators Update update is released for existing users.
Meanwhile, Microsoft is said to be planning another major update for its operating system this year. All these new design elements and support for ARM-based chipsets that will run desktop applications will likely come with that major update.
