Microsoft is set to shake up the look of Windows 10
Windows 10 users could soon be seeing a whole new look on their PCs thanks to a major design makeover.
Microsoft’s software proved to be a reluctant hit upon its initial release back in 2014, with many users initially put off by an overhauled design that was significantly different to previous Windows versions.
However as Windows 10 has now landed on millions of computers around the world, users have now embraced Microsoft’s software, and are crying out for a new look.
Luckily it seems that Microsoft has anticipated this, and will be upgrading the layout of Windows 10 within the next few months.

Windows 10 could soon be coming to smart home products
The company is set to launch an update to Windows 10 later this year that will finally provide the software with a much-needed makeover.
Codenamed ‘Project Neon’, the update was reported by Windows Central earlier this week, giving an exciting preview of how your Windows 10 devices could soon look.
The new-look Windows 10 appears to bring in a number of stylistic improvements, including boosted animations and blue to apps.
Microsoft has already made the new tools available to developers, as part of its aims to help teams build new and ‘beautiful apps’.
The first look at Project Neon was leaked earlier this week

Project Neon is also set to bring a number of improvements to Windows 10’s 3D functions, and the link between the software and its HoloLens headset.
The update will most likely be fully unveiled at Microsoft’s Build conference, set to be held in May this year, as part of the next wave of ‘Redstone’ releases.
Redstone is the name Microsoft has given to its upcoming software updates in the past, with Redstone 3 set to be revealed later this year.
However Project Neon is unlikely to be part of the Windows 10 Creators Update, which is due to land in April, promising a range of other improvements and upgrades for PC users.
Previous updates to the beta version of Windows 10 Creators Update included the ability to control music playback from iHeartRadio and TuneIn radio using Cortana.
The ability to identify a track by asking "Hey Cortana, what's playing?" was also added.
However it also appears Windows 10 Creators Update will include more adverts than previous editions as Microsoft looks to make the most of its new product.
The adverts will primarily be seen in the updated version of the Windows 10 Share tool.
