A progressive Windows 10 overhaul is coming

To support it update Windows 10, which has been essentially untouched for over five years, Microsoft is searching for programmers. On its website, the organization posted a related vacancy, but later erased all references to the redesign from it. The arrival of Windows 10’s latest look will take place in the fall of 2021.

The presence of the Windows 10 architecture upgrade project, codenamed Sun Valley, was first announced at the end of October 2020. It could be at an early stage of growth at the time, as Microsoft was not yet searching for software developers to join its team to “radically change” the OS.

Testing of the Sun Valley upgrade could start in the near future, according to Windows Latest. Beta testers could have access to their first construction samples by the end of February 2021 at the latest.

The gui is new and the operating system is old


Microsoft is preparing a “radical visual update” for Windows 10, which could remind all users that “Windows is back.” It is these epithets, writes The Verge, that Microsoft quoted in the Windows Core User Interface team in the overview of the work of a software developer.

In this team, you will collaborate with our core platform, Surface and OEM partners to orchestrate and offer a radical visual redesign of the Windows experience to remind our users that Windows is back to ensuring that Windows is deemed the best user experience. OS for consumers.’

The work was highly circulated on the Internet, and to delete the mention of a significant design improvement in Windows 10, Microsoft secretly updated the job description.

What can change?


The inventions, dubbed progressive by Microsoft, may be part of a forthcoming global upgrade, codenamed Sun Valley. “According to the Windows New profile portal, the tech giant plans to reshape the configuration of the “Start” start menu and “Explorer” appearance with it. A number of built-in Windows 10 apps will also be impacted by updates, as well as the taskbar and action center (Action Center).

Improvements to the user interface will also require design changes to both in-house and third-party developers with sliders, buttons and functions that can be used in Windows and programs for it.

In Windows 10, Microsoft is also working to develop tablet mode, especially how devices such as the Surface series (laptops, PCs and tablets from Microsoft) switch between mouse / trackpad and touch controls.

Release is approaching

If the Sun Valley final beta testing is successful, then the production of the upgrade can be finished by the end of summer 2021. The release date of the consumer upgrade version has not yet been set, but Microsoft normally publishes such major updates during the fall.

They’re hoping for the promised four years,

Since the first stable production in July 2015, Windows 10 has remained largely unchanged in appearance. Microsoft launched a latest architecture concept, Fluent Design, in May 2017, and has started to integrate some of its components into its OS, but there is still no global discussion of it.

For eg, Microsoft launched new icons for regular Windows 10 programs at the end of February 2020 – the mail app, calculator, etc. After, in early July 2020, it corrected and marginally redrawn the Start menu, adjusting the context of the key icons and reducing the size of the side icons. She redesigned the Taskbar along the way to make it more responsive.

The new interface’s final name can sound like ‘WinUI.’ At the end of August 2020, mention of this graphics platform was noticed by representatives of the Windows Insider program in one of the Windows 10 test builds. Tests also identified new interface features in Windows 10 Build 20197 for the Action Centre, Launch menu, and desktop. WinUIDesktopActionCenter, WinUIDesktopStartMenu, and WinUIOnDesktop are called after them.

Possibly the operating system will physically appear more like its light version – Windows 10X – following the arrival of the Sun Valley upgrade and its integration into Windows 10. It is mainly targeted at handheld computers, even the most rudimentary level, and will operate with ARM processors by design.

Back in early October 2019, the fact that Microsoft is running on a new OS called Windows 10X became public – first, the well-known insider Evan Blass spoke about this, saying it was a renamed Windows Core OS – the modular OS of Microsoft. Built for basic tablets and notebooks.
This is what Windows 10X would look like in its final version.

Microsoft premiered a latest line of Surface products the next day after the release of Evan Blass, including the Surface Neo laptop with two displays instead of one keyboard), which was to become the first Windows 10X-based system. Microsoft officials did not announce the release dates for Neo. The OS itself was not seen yet.

Surface Neo had not yet went on sale at the time of the release of the content, and the complete Windows 10X announcement had not yet taken place. In addition, Microsoft deleted from its official website all references to Neo in early October 2020.

In mid-December 2020, the Windows New platform revealed that the development of Windows 10X has been successfully completed by Microsoft and that its update for laptop makers – the so-called RTM version (Release to Manufacturers) – would take place in the near future. It was announced at the end of December 2020 that Windows 10X-based laptops will be able to wake up from sleep mode in an instant —

Since raising the lid instantly. The first android PCs based on the latest Microsoft operating system will go on sale in the second quarter of 2021, according to provisional estimates.
