Like many other tech companies out there, Microsoft is always reinventing themselves in one way or another. They do exactly that for all of their software, as well as their hardware. After all, they need to keep things fresh to keep existing consumers coming back, and new ones joining. Microsoft is now going to fine tune even more software.
Microsoft is planning on updating the icons on Windows 10. The Windows 10 concept images are nothing more than mockups right now, but they are said to be much more modern than their predecessors. So it's clear that the massive tech company is looking to make the icons of their operating system far more appealing to old and new users alike.
The decision to update the Windows 10 icons comes in addition to giving Microsoft Office suite a much-needed update. This bit of news came out just the week before this new announcement. Office 365 is one of the many apps that will also receive an icon update. Those behind the creation of these icons have admitted that building a better Office 365 and the aforementioned icons are going to be extremely difficult. However, they still seem eager to take on such daunting tasks.
The new Microsoft Windows 10 icons set to come out include those for mail, news, photos, and so much more. Given that they're going to modernize such icons, it may look more than a little odd against any older assets previously made by Microsoft. This is in spite of previous efforts over the years to make the system look more modern. Those from Microsoft admit that a broad single icon design for the company as a whole is most likely what they need to make Windows 10 look better than ever before.
Unfortunately, for those eager to learn more about Microsoft's newest project, the massive tech company has yet to release any more details. But don't despair too much; they'll release more information at some point. Whether it's sooner instead of later is really anyone's guess- as well as what exactly is revealed.
