Windows 10 concept with File Explorer tabs and Fluent Design elements

With the latest accidental release of Windows 10 build 18947, Microsoft revealed some future design changes that may come at some point.

Windows 10 users could expect a new Start Menu without live tiles, a redesigned Action Center with rounded corners, and other UI changes in the Windows 10 20H1 that’s coming next year.

This new Windows 10 concept looks amazing

Until then, user DeanEncoded took the matter into its own hands by creating an amazing Windows 10 20H1 concept that will blow your mind.

The concept design is somewhat similar with what Microsoft intends to do, with Fluent Design elements and rounded corners that give the OS a modern and fresh look.

Tabs in File Explorer? Yes, please!

Some of the incremental changes shown in this concept design are a new Start Menu, rounded corners, new UIs for Action Center, Notifications, and the Volume Control, and Fluent Design for Win32 Developers.

But one of the most important additions, heavily asked by the Windows 10 community, is a redesigned File Explorer with Fluent Design, QuickView, and Tabs.

Yes, you heard it right: Tabs in File Explorer!

The concept was most welcomed in the Windows community, as many users expressed their opinions about it:

I’m pretty sure everyone wants windows 10 to look like this but sadly […] Microsoft don’t think so
Tabs in file explorer would make me very happy
Absolutely fantastic. You alone have designed something far more competent and consistent than the entire design team at Microsoft could ever dream of

A couple of similar changes are also in Microsoft’s bag, but tabs for explorer and Fluent Design for Win32 Developers remain only a dream, for now.

We’ll just have to wait and see if Redmond will take a look at this and maybe, just maybe, some of the most requested features will make their way into the official release of Windows 10 20H1.

As a reminder, Windows 10 20H1 update will most likely come in the spring of next year.

Until then, what do you think about this awesome Windows 10 concept?
