Windows 10 Fall Creators Update webit man stories

On this Sunday evening we at #WebITMAN are going to discuss about the Windows Shell Features and Improvements in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. 

Fall Creators update is almost ready and will soon be shipped by Microsoft Officially. So we are going to let you people know about the improvements and features its going to bring.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update –

introduces new UI for Start and Action Center that includes elements of our new Fluent Design System which was announced at Build 2017.

  • Acrylic: If you have transparency enabled for Start, you’ll notice it’s now been updated to use the new acrylic design.
  • Vertical resize: No more glitches at the bottom of the frame.
  • Horizontal resize: The frame now starts resizing horizontally immediately (like vertical resize), as opposed to only “snapping” to certain widths.
  • Diagonal resize: Frame can be resized diagonally.
  • Resize grips: It’s now easier to “grip” the edge of the frame to start resizing.
  • Tablet mode transition: Smoother transition into tablet mode.

  • Notification buttons to now span across the bottom of the notification, rather than being right-justified.
  • It easier for you to take action on your notifications by auto-expanding the first notification in each notification group in the Action Center. Now you can quickly triage your emails, snooze your reminders, reply to your texts, etc. without the need to expand every single one of them.
  • In response to feedback about the X to “dismiss” notifications being confusing. It’s adjusted to an arrow to make it more clear that the notification is actually being pushed to the Action Center to be reviewed later.

Action Center is also redesigned based on feedback to provide much clearer information separation and hierarchy.

And the new design for Action Center also includes elements of our Fluent Design System such as acrylic! (and in case you were wondering, we’ve also added acrylic to our notification toasts!).

As a reminder, you can also customise the visible of quick actions by going to Settings > System > Notifications & actions.
