Microsoft adds macOS-like hardware flags to Windows 11

Microsoft adds macOS-like hardware flags to Windows 11

Microsoft is rolling out redesigned hardware metric flyouts (eerily similar to macOS and iOS) that align with the design of Windows 11 to all Windows Insiders in the development channel.

The new design was something customers had been asking for for a long time. However, some of them already believe that it will not work very well on Windows devices with touchscreens and that does not match the design already displayed in the control panel.

“We have updated the flyout design for the hardware indicators of brightness, volume, camera privacy, camera on / off and airplane mode, to align it with the design principles of Windows 11, “said Amanda Langowski and Brandon LeBlanc of Microsoft.

“These new flyout menus will appear when you press the volume or brightness keys on your laptop and honor light / dark mode to give you a more consistent Windows experience.”

The Windows Insider team added that the volume and brightness indicators are still interactive after installing the new development version, Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22533.

This week, Microsoft is also starting to roll out a new phone calling experience for all Windows Insiders in the development channel with updated visuals, including new icons and fonts.

“This update includes a new Call In Progress window with updated icons, fonts, and other user interface changes that align with the improved design of Windows 11,” Langowski added and LeBlanc today.

“Make calls with the app Your phone should still work like it did before with this new user interface!” Please try it out and share your feedback with us through Feedback Hub under Apps> Your Phone. “

Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22533 also includes several fixes for driver or firmware update errors, app connection issues, photo import issues, and Windows Explorer crashes.

Microsoft also rolled out a completely redesigned Windows 11 notebook last month, a design that was first teased in June 2020 in screenshots shared ahead of the official launch to show the interface changes. native applications.

Windows Insiders who want to provide feedback on the Redesigned Experiences can share their opinions using the Feedback Hub (under Apps> Notepad).
