Microsoft document gives us another look at Windows 10 visual revamp

Thanks to the proposals posted on Github by Microsoft,
we keep getting glimpses of what the future might look for
Windows 10 and its apps. Reports have suggested that the
overall interface will substantially by the end of the year and
new improvements are also coming to native apps with WinUI 3.

In a series of new proposals, we’re getting another sneak peek
showing how more rounded corners could be introduced for
elements within the operating system. For instance, in one
proposal, Microsoft noted that it’s also considering a new
design for the InfoBar (alerts/pop-ups).

The Redmond firm is also adding 1px border around the whole
alert box with support for rounded corners, as shown in the

In addition to the alert box, there are
plans to update text control colours and borders as well.
The inner buttons inside the text controls will also get
rounded corners. This includes the close button, AutoSuggest

Windows 10 Settings and other important pages are also expected
to get similar improvements with the highly-anticipated Sun
Valley update.

Microsoft is testing rounded corners on the native app window
itself and buttons within the Settings app will also get
similar improvements.

This new interface is a lot more modern than the existing
legacy components in Windows 10, but the mock-up doesn’t
necessarily mean the operating system will go this way. The
plans are always to subject and these experimental changes can
be modified ahead of the final release.
