Microsoft’s next Windows 10 update will bring a brand new light theme along. The company unveiled the theme today through a Windows 10 test build available for members of the Windows Insider program. And to be very honest, the new color scheme launched by Microsoft looks pretty cool!
Announcing the new theme through its blog, the company said:
Ever since we introduced the ability to choose between light and dark in Windows 10, we’ve heard feedback asking for a truer separation between the two options. When you select Light under Settings > Personalization > Colors, the expectation is that the system color would be lighter too. And it didn’t do that before – the taskbar and many other things stayed dark. Now, if you choose Light under Settings > Personalization > Colors, all system UI will now be light. This includes the taskbar, Start menu, Action Center, touch keyboard, and more.
So basically, the light theme that was available earlier has been made much more detailed, and selecting it once you have upgraded to this new build, will cause changes that will reflect across the whole system. Microsoft is also bringing in a brand new system wallpaper to better match the aesthetics of the light theme.
The company also released a warning in which it said that the theme wasn’t fully complete and it was working on a few minor aspects that still needed to be tweaked. However, members of the Windows Insider program can still access and download it, so it should probably pretty much stable.
Along with the light theme, Microsoft has also introduced some minor changes within Windows Snip, the printing module, and the windows updater. All of these features are available in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18282, and you can read about them in greater detail by clicking here.
