We’ve already heard a lot about what Windows 11 and the new Microsoft Store will bring. The Start Menu, Action Center, and other areas of Windows 11 get a new look. Several Microsoft-developed apps are also getting a makeover, as is to be anticipated. Windows 11 is the overall design, and it uses Microsoft’s Fluent Design and Mica to provide a cleaner, more consistent experience.
Sharp corners are replaced with rounded corners to provide a “more human and approachable language” that improves productivity and multitasking. In addition, Microsoft is reportedly preparing to introduce Fluent and WinUI designs to all essential programs, including Photos, Paint, and even Notepad, ahead of the October release of Windows 11.
Microsoft is also transferring the codebase to C#, in addition to a new design. Microsoft presently offers a suite of utilities known as PowerToys, as you’re undoubtedly aware. This app was first released for Windows 95, but it was later updated for Windows 10/11 to provide more advanced functionality. New tools are being developed, and Microsoft recently launched a function that allows you to turn on the “always-on” mode.
