Microsoft has never stopped making changes to its products, and today it announced that it will make more than 100 of its app icons. These icons belong to Microsoft’s services, tools, applications, and so on, this icon adjustment further into the “Fluent Design” design concept.
Fluent Design is Microsoft’s official design language, the greatest feature is intuitive, powerful, flexible, and can be used on a variety of devices for a unified experience. In more blunt terms, Fluent Design tends to be more flat, concise, and easy to understand than in past design languages. Microsoft has recalibrated app icons such as Office, Outlook, Paint and Mail before, and now it’s making large-scale uniform tweaks to its services and app icons.
The most interesting thing about this massive adjustment is the Windows icon itself. Although the current Windows icons are very simple and flattened, the angle and overall shape of the icons for the new version of Windows remainthes the same, but the four windows have a blue background and different shadow processing.
It needs to be clear that Microsoft is currently simply redesigning the application icon. Microsoft also continues to make major adjustments to the application UI for Fluent Design, but it is clear that these developments will take longer. It’s unclear when Microsoft will launch these new app icons.
