Microsoft is constantly updating their products, be it through new features, security features, or even just a design overhaul.

On that note, Microsoft plans on giving Windows 10 a new look, starting off with redesigning 100 icons.

Now it seems that they are getting closer to achieving their goal.  A comment on a public forum revealed that Microsoft has already started releasing the new icons, and putting them on users’ taskbar.

These new icons are based on Microsoft’s Fluent Design System and are only currently available to the taskbar.

The icons are already in the Preview Builds

Unfortunately, live users will not be seeing these new icons just yet, as they are only available to those that are part of the Windows Insider program. Additionally, Microsoft hasn’t released all the icons yet, as only a handful are currently available.

Thankfully enough, the rate at which Windows Insider Builds usually evolves is pretty fast. As such, the next update should arrive in about two or three weeks.

Users that are part of the Insider program will then have to give their feedback regarding the icons. Afterward, Microsoft may need to take some extra time making minor adjustments.

After that, we can expect a live release for these icons within the next major feature update, most probably during a Patch Tuesday round of updates.
