Windows Central quoted the company’s sources as saying that Microsoft is seeking to update Windows 10 in 2021 to overhaul the UI. This major design upgrade will change frequently used elements such as the Start Menu, Operation Center, and File Explorer. These elements will be converted to have better animations, modern designs and even new features.
According to reports, Microsoft named the codename of this design overhaul project “Sun Valley” and is expected to be released with the Windows 10 “Cobalt” version in the holiday season of 2021. Internal documents obtained by the publication describe the project as “renewing and modernizing… in other modern and lightweight platform-driven worlds, the Windows desktop experience can meet customer expectations.”
The last design overhaul released by Microsoft was when the Windows 10 update was first released five years ago. Since then, the company has been publishing some adjustments, but has not fully reconsidered. According to reports, this UI overhaul was carried out by the Windows device and experience team under the leadership of Chief Product Officer Panos Panay.
