Microsoft is reportedly introducing a new component branded “Acrylic” to the overall Windows 10 design, which will act as a method for developers to further customize the appearance of their universal apps. Project Neon also focuses on Microsoft’s efforts with 3D and HoloLens, tweaking UI elements in places where you interact with a mouse pointer.
Most of the changes appear to be minor additions that will simply progress the Windows 10 design, rather than a grand overhaul. Microsoft will likely detail some of these design changes at its Build developers conference in May, just a month after it’s expected to release the Windows 10 Creators Update to existing users. Microsoft is planning another big update to Windows 10 later this year with these new design elements and support for ARM chipsets running full Windows 10 desktop apps.
