Microsoft, the American Multi National Company (technology) has changed the icons recently. Here’s why and how it looks.
The latest Windows 10 has brought in quite a no. of changes in terms of looks and otherwise also. The most prominent change is the new Microsoft File Explorer icon. This is not the end, there are changes in Recycle Bin, Documents folders, and devices like disk drives too.
Though the changes are not very big, yet it adds a tinch of difference in what the icons used to look previously. It surely gives a modern look now. The taskbar widget has also been updated.
What does Microsoft has to say about these changes?
Here’s what Amanda Langowski, Microsoft’s Windows Insider chief has said in a blog post–
“We first began updating the icons in Windows 10 last year starting with the built-in apps. Since then, we have continued updating icons throughout Windows 10 including the icon for Windows Security, the Narrator icon, and most recently the icon for Notepad. Now we’re taking the next step by updating many of the system icons used throughout File Explorer.”
“Several changes, such as the orientation of the folder icons and the default file type icons, have been made for greater consistency across Microsoft products that show files. Notably, the top-level user folders such as Desktop, Documents, Downloads, and Pictures have a new design that should make it a little easier to tell them apart at a glance. And yes, the Recycle Bin icon has also been updated!”
“As you can imagine, there are a lot of icons in Windows 10 and more icons will continue to get updated over time.”
With these statements we can expect that the Windows interface may again change in future for a better and convenient appearance. Also, as the company says it will give a more apt and modern look.
