    Windows 10’s new rounded UI is now heading to another Microsoft app


    Microsoft is believed to be testing out new designs and tweaks for Windows 10 and pre-installed apps. Now, it appears Microsoft is also testing a new tweak to the UI of the Windows 10 Your Phone app that will introduce rounded corners, bringing the application closer to the WinUI design guidelines.

    Microsoft sources believe that most inbox apps or pre-installed apps will receive rounded corners and other UI improvements before the release of the Windows 10 21H2 ‘Sun Valley’ upgrade.

    Over the past few months, rounded UI elements have been appearing in Windows 10 apps including Calculator and Calendar. It’s clear that the tech giant is planning to propose rounded corners as the standard design language next year.

    A new update for the Your Phone app, which is rolling out to the testers in the Insider program, rounds off the corners of the buttons. Note that the Your Phone app already comes with rounded menus, but Microsoft is now expanding the rounded edges to more pages of the app.

    In addition to the Your Phone app, Microsoft also confirmed that Edge 88 will ship with rounded icons and Fluent UI improvements.

    Of course, these changes are far from major, but they certainly make it more obvious that Microsoft is betting big on rounded UI edges for Windows 10.

    Last month, users noticed that Microsoft is experimenting with rounded buttons and menus in the Alarm & Clock app. Likewise, rounded corners for the taskbar search bar and Start Menu were also spotted in a design mockup posted by Microsoft.

    It could be argued that the rounded corners give the Windows 10 UI a more modern and fresh look when compared to the current sharp edges, but at the same time, the rounded corners introduce could introduce another inconsistency problem.

    According to the latest information from the rumour mill, Windows 10 21H1 service pack-style update is set to launch in the spring of 2021.

    On the other hand, the major UI upgrade will ship in the fall of next year and we have already seen mockup screenshots of app windows with rounded edges, but it’s unclear if it will be included in the rumoured ’21H2′ upgrade.

    Microsoft Announces Windows 10 Operating System

    Microsoft Corp. on Tuesday unveiled its next Windows operating system, Windows 10, and gave a first look at an early technical preview for the PC available Oct. 1. The announcement highlighted advancements designed for business, including an updated user experience and enhanced security and management capabilities. The company also introduced the Windows Insider Program, kicking off its largest-ever open collaborative development effort to change the way Windows is built and delivered to best meet the needs of customers. Program participants will receive the technical preview of Windows 10 and a steady stream of builds through the development cycle to use and give feedback on.

    "Windows 10 represents the first step of a whole new generation of Windows, unlocking new experiences to give customers new ways to work, play and connect," said Terry Myerson, executive vice president of the Operating Systems group at Microsoft. "This will be our most comprehensive operating system and the best release Microsoft has ever done for our business customers, and we look forward to working together with our broader Windows community to bring Windows 10 to life in the months ahead."

    Windows 10: familiarity and consistency across devices
    Windows 10 adapts to the devices customers are using - from Xbox to PCs and phones to tablets and tiny gadgets - and what they're doing with a consistent, familiar and compatible experience, enabling even greater productivity. Windows 10 will run across the broadest range of devices ever from the Internet of Things to enterprise datacenters worldwide. Microsoft is also delivering a converged application platform for developers on all devices with a unified app store. Developers will be able to write an application once and deploy it easily across multiple device types, making discovery, purchase and updating easier than ever for customers.

    Windows 10: designed for the challenges of modern business
    Windows 10 builds nearly everything that businesses need right into the core of the product - including enterprise-grade security, identity and information protection features - in ways that can reduce complexities and provide better experiences than other solutions. One area of advancement is in the work Microsoft has done with user identities to improve resistance to breach, theft or phishing. Windows 10 will also help advance data loss prevention by using containers and data separation at the application and file level, enabling protection that follows the data as it goes from a tablet or PC to a USB drive, email or the cloud.

    Management and deployment have been simplified to help lower costs, including in-place upgrades from Windows 7 or Windows 8 that are focused on making device wipe-and-reload scenarios obsolete. Businesses will also have the flexibility to choose how quickly they adopt the latest innovations and influence continued improvements. In addition, organizations will be able to customize an app store specific to their needs and environment. The intent is an app store that will allow for volume app licensing, flexible distribution, and the ability for organizations to reclaim or reuse licenses when necessary.

    Technical preview PC productivity
    The early technical preview of Windows 10 demonstrates new levels of flexibility, navigation and familiarity through the Windows experience. Features include these:
    • Expanded Start menu. The familiar Start menu is back, providing quick one-click access to the functions and files that people use most, and it includes a new space to personalize with favorite apps, programs, people and websites.
    • Apps that run in a window. Apps from the Windows Store now open in the same format that desktop programs do. They can be resized and moved around, and have title bars at the top allowing users to maximize, minimize and close with a click.
    • Snap enhancements. Working in multiple apps at once is easier and more intuitive with snap improvements. A new quadrant layout allows up to four apps to be snapped on the same screen. Windows will also show other apps and programs running for additional snapping, and it will even make smart suggestions on filling available screen space with other open apps.
    • New Task view button. The new Task view button on the task bar enables one view for all open apps and files, allowing for quick switching and one-touch access to any desktop created.
    • Multiple desktops. Instead of too many apps and files overlapping on a single desktop, it's easy to create and switch between distinct desktops for different purposes and projects - whether for work or personal use.
    Open and collaborative development
    The introduction of the Windows Insider Program demonstrates Microsoft's continued commitment to working closely with customers to help shape the future of Windows. Windows Insiders will be able to give feedback on early builds of the product throughout the development cycle. The program will include various ways for Windows Insiders to engage in a two-way dialogue with Microsoft, including a Windows Feedback app for sharing suggestions and issues and a Windows Technical Preview Forum for interacting with Microsoft engineers and fellow Insiders. More information on the Windows Insider Program and the technical preview can be found here.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”
