The company is celebrating that Windows 10 surpassed 1 billion users worldwide this week. Microsoft is partying. Windows 10 is running right now on a billion devices and the number is still on the rise. To celebrate the moment, those of Redmond revealed the changes that will come soon to their operating system.
Through a post on Instagram, Microsoft boss Panos Panay presented the redesign based on Fluent Design, with new Live Tiles that we thought would disappear (but that are now identical to Windows 10x, for dual-screen devices) . However, we know that they will change from light to dark tones, according to user preferences . It also seems that Microsoft has been working to make the operating system look more fluid, with more modern context menus , which even integrate more information and accessibility options. Windows 10 includes icons with new circular and more colorful strokes. But the surprise is also that Windows will soon renew the file explorer.
“The team made this video to celebrate reaching 1 billion MAD in Windows 10 and wanted to share it with all of you. Now, at a time when much of our work and communication takes place through our devices, it is especially heartening to know that Windows can help empower a billion people to stay connected to the things and people that are connected to them. #Windows matters, ” Panay wrote in his post.
