Microsoft began to change applications for Windows 11

Published

on

Microsoft is now in full swing preparing for the release of the Windows 11 operating system, which has undergone significant changes in design and interface.

Common Microsoft applications are also adapting to the new interface. On June 24, Microsoft officially announced new designs for the Photos, Notepad, and Paint applications in Windows 11. However, it doesn’t stop there.

The company has already translated applications such as Calculator and PowerToys into a new design concept. These are some of the most popular Microsoft Windows applications.

The new calculator design is based on the latest Fluent Design and WinUI guidelines such as rounded corners and transparency. A new settings page will also appear, which will present additional options.

The PowerToys suite of utilities originally debuted in Windows 95 and then reborn in Windows 10. PowerToys also has an update to make the application look more like Windows 11.

As a Microsoft spokesman pointed out, the company is not going to use multiple UX design systems at the same time, since applications are becoming almost impossible to test and maintain. Instead, the plan is to implement “the Windows 11 style as it is much more adaptable and flexible.”

I have an Android Galaxy Z Fold3 Bill Gates reveals

The former head of Microsoft does not use the company’s smartphones. Answering a question about his mobile device on the Reddit forum, Bill Gates told what kind of smartphone he uses.

I have an Android Galaxy Z Fold3 Bill Gates reveals

I have an Android Galaxy Z Fold3. I try different ones. With this screen, I can get by with a great laptop and phone and don’t need anything else.

Third-party sources, of course, emphasize that Gates could use the Microsoft Surface Duo 2, but, like the first generation, this device failed in sales and is inferior to Samsung’s foldable flagship on literally all fronts.

As for other smartphones or the laptop he chose, Gates, unfortunately, did not disclose the details.

Paid apps in Huawei AppGallery can be downloaded completely free of charge: Huawei has not yet responded

Paid apps in Huawei AppGallery can be downloaded completely free

Since Huawei was under US sanctions, Huawei has been forced to switch to its own software solutions as it is banned from using Google services. One of them is the AppGallery app store, which has become a replacement for Google Play.

AppGallery has a pretty serious issue that one developer says has remained unresolved for months, even though he reported it to Huawei back in February. This vulnerability allows anyone with a little bit of technical skill, some free time, and a bit of inclination to put in a little effort to download and install any paid app from AppGallery without paying for it. Of course, for developers who support Huawei by releasing their apps in the AppGallery, this is very bad news.

Paid apps in Huawei AppGallery can be downloaded completely free of charge: Huawei has not yet responded

Dylan Roussel, the developer who discovered the problem, emphasizes that this vulnerability is on the side of Huawei, which still remains unresolved. The bottom line is that the AppGallery API does not offer any protection for paid apps.

Roussel himself was able to download and use several paid apps by exploiting this vulnerability. Obviously, this is a big problem, because with the active exploitation of the vulnerability, developers will receive less profit from the possible sale of their applications.

It remains to be hoped that Huawei will soon solve the problem.
