    New icons for Windows 10 apps starting to roll out for all users

    The new icons include Alarms & Clock, Mail and Calendar, Calculator, Groove Music, Movies & TV, and Voice Recorder.

    They will be updated via the Microsoft Store app.

    We are currently working on a multi-year effort across Microsoft’s design teams to redesign the icons across all our products. We started with the Office icons, and now we’re moving forward with updating the icons in Windows 10, starting with the built-in apps like Alarms & Clock, Calculator, Mail, and Calendar. Research and feedback from Windows Insiders showed a desire to see consistency in design and connection to the brand, with enough differences to aid in recognition. You can read all about our approach to updating the icons in Windows 10 in this Medium post from the Microsoft Design Team!

    Many of these icons will be updated as app updates from the Microsoft Store. We are beginning to roll them out to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring first, starting today. The Mail and Calendar icons rolled out this morning to Release Preview. Over the coming months, Insiders will see more of the icons in Windows 10 get updated with new designs!

    UPDATE 2/25: New icons are starting to roll out to all users, and not just Windows Insiders.

    I've been told that they are on a partial roll-out so you may not get the full set at first.

    Can’t help think what a waste of time and effort. The App Store has it’s fair share of bugs so would of hoped resources better directed elsewhere. Means we will get a whole load of updates for all these apps . Which on a pc with multiple user accounts is like playing roulette as to whether said updates cause issues on the other user accounts - at least that’s what happens on our two home machines

    I'm not a fan of the new icons, they look totally out of place on my system.

    The new icons look like some cheesy Linux icon set

    That's a pretty accurate description Cliff, if a little harsh on Linux

    Cliff must be using the wrong Distro! These Icons are better than the plain ones prior to theses. Below is The Mail Icon From 18363.657.
