Windows 10 is getting faster and smoother app opening animations

Windows 10 animations

In the second half of 2021,
Windows 10 is getting an overhauled interface with a new
look that boasts Fluent Design and WinUI. The changes include a
new Start Menu, taskbar, and including various animations – and
they’ll start appearing in the preview builds in the coming
months.

Sun Valley, as it’s known, won’t radically redesign the
operating system, but it will make quite a number of
interesting tweaks to improve the overall experience of Windows
10, especially the app opening experience.

Microsoft has already confirmed that it’s working on new
animations and it looks like the company is now testing another
variant that will be ‘faster’ and ‘smoother’.

“Based on feedback, we’ve made some small adjustments to the
new app launch animation to improve speed and make it a little
smoother,” Microsoft noted in
the changelog of Build 21313.

According to sources familiar with the plans, Windows 10 Sun
Valley also will bring new animations to the Start Menu and
context menu.

At any rate, these new animations can always be disabled.

In addition to faster and smoother animations, Windows 10 Sun
Valley update will bring back some of Windows 7’s design
features (transparency and rounded corners), while focusing on
UI consistency and simplicity.

One of the main features of Windows 10 Sun Valley update is
support for WinUI, which basically enables faster design
development for core components and it will also add blur
effects or rounded corners to windows and sidebars for a more
‘unified’ UI look.

Other minor improvements

In the latest preview builds, Microsoft is testing minor
improvements for Windows 10. This includes the new voice typing
experience, which was first announced in September 2020, and
it’s finally heading to all testers in the Windows Insider
program.

Likewise, Microsoft is also experimenting with changes for both
clipboard history manager and emoji search bar. As part of the
experiment, Microsoft is enabling support for pinning items in
clipboard history manager and faster/accurate search engine in
the emoji panel.
