Some time ago, Microsoft pushed a new icon to Windows 10 Preview users. However, after the trial, many netizens said that the actual effect is far from as good as imagined. In fact, Win10’s interface design has been criticized, the biggest problem is the modules between each other, there is no unified planning. A few days ago, some netizens drew a set of effect series, in addition to incorporating the latest Win10X concept, but also with a few days ago updated the new icon.
1. Start menu
The start menu has always been the focus of everyone’s slotting, from Win8’s METRO to Win10’s list and tile, and the questioning has never been broken. From the effect sgram, the author’s menu clearly draws on the concept of Win10X, the tile was completely canceled, the nail-picking program and the recently visited files are almost copying Win7’s mature pattern. Search boxes, voice assistants, schedule tasks are placed at the top of the menu, and a real-time weather and settings button is cleverly arranged. Fluent Design is also supported, especially the shadow effect next to the feature box.

Timed tasks are noticed
2. Quick Operator Panel
The shortcut panel comes out of the notification center independently, and in addition to leaving more free space for notifications, the panel itself becomes more flexible. From the effect map, the author will be volume slider, brightness slider, etc., directly added to the relevant panel, not only the display content is richer, but also more convenient for users to quickly handle similar operations.

Explorer should be the second most slotted, this system tool from Win8, from the beginning of the year, has not been able to follow in the footsteps of Win10. Not only does the appearance have nothing to do with Win10 Fluent Design, but many other aspects of icon, spacing, etc. are not suitable for touch-screen users. In the author’s effect diagram, the Win7-era shortcut button is re-taken and the RIBBON label is retained. At the top of the window is a multi-tab bar, and the color blocks replace the current split line design.
Overall, the concept version is not only more valuable, but also more practical than win10. It also adds a path tag similar to Win98, which should be used to replace the previous address bar. Although the author did not give a screenshot of the night mode, but inferred should also be very good!

4. UWP Application
The UWP version of the app has changed a lot, taking the familiar weather as an example. The effect map re-adjusts the interface and color on the basis of maintaining the original Win10 layout. In particular, the elimination of the left-hand hamburger sidebar greatly improves the coordination of the entire interface. Compared to the original Win10, the effect version is more suitable for touch-screen users in the element distribution habits, and the layout looks more reasonable. In addition, the author also came with a UWP open-start diagram, the visual sense is excellent!

5. Micosoft Office
The application software changes much like Explorer, leaving many common feature buttons while retaining the RIBBON label. Unlike the current Version of Word, the effects section splits the edit area from other areas, except for the edit blocks, which are displayed in a diluted manner, making it easier for the writer to concentrate. Of course, Fluent Design is also very perfect, which is what many users have been looking forward to, so that all Windows software has a unified style.

Write at the end
In fact, this is not the first time the author released win10 effect map, as early as a year ago, has been published on the Internet about the effect atlas. This time, the man turned over his previous inventory and embedded Microsoft’s latest icon to create a refurbished version. Compared with the above effect map, a representative a year ago, a representative a year later, good and bad, we feel it for ourselves!

In fact, there has been such a saying, all of China is teaching Zhang Xiaolong to do WeChat, the world is teaching Microsoft to do UI. Microsoft UI chaos should start with the Win8 era, after a decade has not improved, but also made a small history. Although the chances of getting Microsoft to adopt the above design are slim, but you and I know that this is the user’s favorite operating system!
