Windows 10 Redstone 4 is shaping up to be the update for die-hard user interface crazies like myself. We're already seeing improvements to apps like Mail and Calendar, and more Fluent Design elements are finally showing up throughout the OS like Start and the Action Center in the latest Insider builds.
Adding to that bucket of goodness, the Settings app will also be getting some Fluent Design love in Redstone 4, as newly leaked screenshots suggest Microsoft is currently working on an slight redesign that brings Acrylic, Reveal, and an updated home layout that looks better on PCs.
The addition of Fluent Design in the Settings app is something that I am personally very excited about. I'm all for plastering the entire OS in Fluent Design goodness, and the Settings app is an important area in the OS where I think Fluent Design should be.
We're expecting Microsoft to continue adding its new design language to many more parts of the OS over the course of Redstone 4 development. Expect to see it in the taskbar, and in fly-outs, as well as within more first and third-party apps!
