Microsoft has begun to implement a new design for the user interface elements of the Windows operating system without much warning.
Recently, the company has released updates for built-in applications such as Maps, Calculator, Notes, Calendar, Pictures, and Movies & TV.
The new appearance with rounded corners of dialog boxes and menus was noticed by representatives of the WindowsLatest resource. The changes are small, but they fundamentally change the concept of Windows design, significantly affecting the overall visual experience.
The rounded corners are expected to completely replace the current version of the “angular” design.
Earlier versions of Windows also boasted rounded corners, but with the launch of the Metro UI style in Windows 8, the company moved to an angular and more formal design.
