Windows 10 will soon get rounded corners

It looks like Windows 10 will soon be getting a minor design change in the form of rounded corners. Zac Bowden, Senior Editor at Windows Central tweeted a screenshot of an early version of Windows 10, namely the 20H1 preview build. Judging by the replies to the tweet, it seems like many of the users aren’t fans of the new design change. Bowden didn’t seem to mind the new design however. “Yeah, round UI designs are very nice. Not sure what’s wrong with everyone lol. MS just needs to add acrylic and reveal effects and this centered search UI will be PERFECT,” he said in response to a tweet.


The new rounded corners design is already a part of the new Chromium-based Edge browser. Microsoft finally released the early builds of its Chromium-based Edge browser for testing. The company noted that only builds for Windows 10 (64-bit) are made available for download. Builds for other platforms like Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 and MacOS will launch soon. Those interested can download the builds for the Canary and Developers Channels from the Microsoft Edge Insider website. The Canary build is updated nightly and reflects the commits the next day. The Developer build is more stable and is updated weekly.

Microsoft is also expected to roll out the may 2019 update for Windows 10 soon. The new update is expected to bring a bunch of new features and improvements. This would include the ability to postpone updates by up to 35 days. That would be seven days at a time, up to a maximum of five times. Other new updates include Windows Sandbox, light theme and more. You and read more about the upcoming update here.
