We thought we should inform you that the Redmond-based tech company is planning to perform some visual revamping for PowerToys Settings.

Of course, this means that, once they’re done with it, PoweToys will feature the overall design of the upcoming Windows 11 OS.

As we previously mentioned, it was just a matter of time before most of the software that we use on a regular basis will look and feel like a Windows 11 native.

PowerToys is about to get a whole new look

The PowerToys design team has recently shared another early look at a revamped PowerToys Settings app on Twitter.

This new visual refresh for the app draws many UI elements from the Windows 11 design language and it includes modern icons, new Windows UI controls as well as various accessibility improvements for PowerToys users.

A much-expected decision, considering that early adopters really appreciate the apps on their device being in tune with the operating system itself.

Although this project is smaller and not that difficult to execute as the others Microsoft is currently laboring on, there is one essential thing we must keep in mind.

This PowerToys Settings UI update is still a work in progress, and the developer team is encouraging users to provide feedback on the GitHub issues page.

Everyone is hoping that these changes will first begin showing up for preview users in the coming weeks before rolling out to everyone in the stable releases.

Of course, this is just one of the apps that recently received makeovers from the Redmond tech giant. Paint, along with the Calendar, Calculator, Mail, and Snipping Tool also received Windows 11 appropriate visual tweaks.

And since the new OS is getting closer and closer to its official release date, we will surely begin to see more software receiving the same cosmetic treatment.
