Microsoft released the latest Windows 10 insider build for next year’s April Windows 10 update, and it contained a welcome susprise.
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.
This looks really, really nice. There’s a few other changes in this build as well, but do note we’re very early in the development process, so these builds are not for the faint of heart.
