In addition to the taskbar and Start menu, Task Manager is one of the core experiences on Windows. Over the years, Microsoft has implemented minor design improvements, but the tab-based box interface remains in place. Recently, however, some netizens shared a Mission Manager concept map using the Fluent Design design element on Twitter, making us feel more in harmony with the Windows 10 operating system.

Interestingly, apart from being inspired by Fluent Design, this conceptual task manager seems to be running on Windows 10X.
The taskbar has a centered icon and a redesigned system tray that is very different from any system UI we’ve seen before.
The conceptual task manager abandoned the Windows 98-style frame around the tab to render more concise and clear text with an indicator line below.
A brand new search box has been introduced in the upper left corner, allowing users to retrieve specific tasks or processes that they want to work on. In addition, the menu bar at the top disappears completely and is replaced by a button that runs a new task.
You can even find a “…” submenu, a friend who has used the new Microsoft Edge browser and should nuns.
In other ways, the list of processes and applications has become more concise, and the overall look looks cleaner, removing the dark background.
There’s even a clear blue icon to end the task (End Task) and a list that scrolls up and down.
Unfortunately, while this is a pretty cool concept, we don’t know if and when Microsoft will be officially introduced on Windows 10.
