Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system has been a mix of old and new designs since its launch, however, Microsoft decided to modernize its UI look by providing a fresh set of icons. If you are a user of Microsoft Office suite, then you already know how the new icons look for Office applications like Excel and Word. The material design present on those apps is now transferring to the rest of Windows 10 stock applications like Calendar and Calculator. In the effort to modernize the look of Windows 10 and end the Windows 7 inspired UI, Microsoft will be pushing the updated icon set over few following months. The updates icons are already available for Windows 10 Insiders, and specifically for Preview Build 19569. Regular users can expect to get the update in the coming months.
 
This change is long overdue in my opinion.

    I like it. All the icons I can assume what they do easily enough and the ones I don't instantly get I probably would be able to realized the use based on where they are on the screen.

    Purely cosmetic, but looks ok. Makes sense to have consistency throughout their offerings (Windows, Office, MS apps), which I believe is the intention here.

    What did MS spend "cost" on this redesign? How about giving us something more useful, "Go back to using Servicepack, and drivers and updates that dont brake bleep......

    Hey Ty_ger07, I've used it once few years ago, but didn't like it...
    so, was just wondering if they got rid of the text under icons , which it looked
    like in the first pic in this thread ... Glad they didn't ......... might try it again soon.

    Is Microsoft running out of things to screw up every 6 months? Are icons really a high priority?
