Windows 10 is reportedly going to have a major overhaul later this year, and many clues as to what might be imminent in the process have just been uncovered – namely, rounded corners for windows. .
As you may recall, this is a possibility that appeared before, with rumors sticking around for a while that Microsoft is planning to remove sharp edges on windows or other interface elements such as menus or boards and replace them with smooth, rounded corners.
More recently, we’ve seen the Settings panel’s favorites round out in models published by Microsoft, and it’s assumed that this more modern look will be part of a whole big UI improvement. is called the ‘Sun Valley’ project.
Latest Windows reports that in recent Windows 10 preview builds, Microsoft is currently testing a new ‘prototype rounded corners’ flag, which brings a subtle rounding effect to key desktop interface components . That includes the Start menu, Action Center, and the Settings app.
So given the weight of evidence, it looks like this is Microsoft’s intention, although it’s clear it still remains to see if rounded corners apply to Windows 10 as Sun Valley theoretically comes into play. force in the second 2021 update (Windows 10 21H2).
Like every leak, we’ll just need to wait to find out and indeed Microsoft can change its mind in the meantime. However, since Sun Valley is moving towards a more modern look, the smooth new shaped new corners will certainly match that brevity, and so this move seems a surefire possibility. .
We’ve recently heard that Windows 10 21H2 could be completed – meaning it hits the RTM build – as early as June, although Microsoft might still keep it until later this year, likely Feature will be for extensive testing of feature updates (as this is a major release). Usually, the second Windows 10 update of the year will arrive in October or November, but of course it could be earlier than this.
