According to a leak, the upcoming new user interface of Windows 10 with the internal name “Sun Valley” will contain not only new visual context menus but also improvements in the dark design.
Will the File Explorer be redesigned in Windows 10?
Another part of the internally “Sun Valley” baptized surface are rounded corners. It could also be that the file explorer gets a revision and becomes more accessible in terms of accessibility. To celebrate the one billion devices with Windows 10 installed, Head of Devices & Windows Panos Panay shared a video on Instagram.
The file explorer is not only based on the start menu, but above all is easier to use with a touchscreen. In the left column there is the directory structure, which is now kept in the style of the start menu.
The column with the open folder, on the other hand, looks familiar and has a menu bar with options that can be folded out. It may be similar to that in the Office programs, so that you can choose how much space you want between entries.
The aim is to make Windows 10 usable for everyone – including people with disabilities – and to offer various display options for the mouse pointer. Microsoft is also currently working on adapting the automatic scaling of windows so that users can display three windows in parallel on one screen.
The new graphical user interface will be available with Windows 10 Version 21H2 in the second half of 2021 at the earliest.
