Windows 11: a new design for File Explorer, PowerPoint, Word and Paint

The Windows 11 conference is over, but Microsoft continues to distill some more information about the system.

The design of Microsoft applications will change

The design of Microsoft applications will change

The event was expected, Microsoft introduced Windows 11 during his special conference. The operating system relies in particular on a brand new interface combining opaque and transparent textures which is reminiscent of Google’s work with Material Design.

In an additional video for Insider Program members, Microsoft explains more about the design of Windows 11.

Finally a new design for the explorer

The good news about this video is that it shows new things Microsoft did not reveal during the conference. We can in particular see the new version of the Windows 11 file explorer, more modern than that of Windows 10.

Windows 10’s file explorer is actually inherited from Windows 7, although it has had some tweaks. Here we can see that the ribbon menu has been reworked to make room for a new, simpler toolbar. The app clearly hasn’t been recreated from scratch, but it should at least integrate more seamlessly with the rest of the system.

It can also be seen in the presentation of Windows 11 for application developers.

In this video, Microsoft also presents a new version of several other applications such as Paint and the Microsoft Office suite.

Microsoft wants to demonstrate that the firm will fully adopt its new design this time and that the home applications will at least be consistent. So even the simple Notepad application will have the right to its little graphic overhaul.

As for the Microsoft Office software suite, we will probably have to wait for a presentation dedicated to this new version to learn more.

Microsoft Word word processing software has also changed its design in the video, but the YouTube compression doesn’t really pay tribute to the work done.

Windows 11 will be available in beta from next week, what to discover in more detail the novelties of Microsoft.
