Microsoft is experimenting with these new features for Windows 10

Windows 10 features update

The next feature update for Windows 10 is arriving later this
month, but it won’t come with any major improvements. Microsoft
appears to be working on multiple new features, UI tweaks and
other improvements for the OS.

Microsoft is internally experimenting with multiple new
features or tweaks for Windows 10, including a brand new
web-based UI that will appear when you set up a new device or
configure the current device after Windows Update.

Now that new preview builds of Windows 10 have been released,
we have started digging through looking for smaller and bigger
undocumented changes or upcoming features.

One small but potentially interesting tweak has been spotted:
Windows 10 is now expanding the Fluent Design to other areas of
the operating system, starting with the Task View or Windows
Timeline.

Note that these features are unfinished and unannounced, but it
could show up in some installations of Windows 10 Insider
preview.

Fluent Design is expanding

It appears that key features of Windows 10 will be presented
with a subtle interface change known as the Reveal effect of
the Fluent Design System, previously called Project Neon.

Fluent Design is already available in Windows 10 as well as the
recent builds of Microsoft apps, but reveal or transparency
effects are missing.

In the next feature update, Microsoft is planning to add Fluent
Design to the Windows Timeline or apps switcher screen, which
can be accessed using Win+Tab shortcut.

Windows 10 Task View

Look for similar effects in other areas of Windows 10 over
time.

Recommended browser settings

Microsoft is adding a new option to the Windows 10’s Default
apps configuration page that will allow users to easily switch
to the default browser settings.

Browser settings

If you click on the confirm button, Microsoft says it will set
Edge as the default browser and pin it to the taskbar and
desktop.

In addition, you will be able to easily select the default apps
for each file format and protocols using a new search box.

Web-based UI components

As we reported recently,
Windows 10X OOBE screen is coming to Windows 10 and this
new experience is based on web technologies.

OOBE web UI

Microsoft is betting big on web tech for Windows 10 and OOBE is
actually a web app with features pulled off entirely from
Microsoft servers, but it works without the internet.

The company has also implemented WinUI-like user interface in
the CloudExperienceHost to offer a native experience.

We’re expecting more web-based UI components in Windows 10 as
we get closer to the launch of the modular OS in the Spring
(Q2/Q3) of 2021.

Spotlight

Microsoft is also bringing the
Spotlight feature on Windows 10 to the desktop.

This will allow you to enable more wallpapers on the desktop
and the experience is similar to lock screen spotlight, but
Microsoft won’t show suggestions, facts, or ads on the desktop
when you use it.

These are some small tweaks and may not be very intuitive for
all users, but Microsoft could also introduce some other
exciting changes, including Windows 10X-like Action Center in
future.

Hopefully, Microsoft considers expanding the development of
Windows 10 to bring all other 10X features, rather than just
minor UI improvements.
