  • Ready for change?

    Microsoft is working on new icons for the fall release of Windows.

    Now there are some icons that probably do need updating… for example I’ve heard that the younger generation thinks the file save icon looks like a coke machine. Seriously. As a person who still questions why Outlook’s yellow icon had to change to blue,  so far the changes aren’t as jarring to me as that was. If you are an insider beta tester you’ve seen the posts about the upcoming changes.

    Also be aware that the current insider release causes pinned Quick Access folders to be lost. It’s a bug, not intentional. Stay tuned, I’m planning on an article in the next few weeks with a preview of 21H2 (the fall release) which will be the big release of the year.
