Windows 10 Icons

Modern Design Language which was previously known as ‘Metro’ is getting updated with the upcoming Windows 10 release. In the recently released Windows 10 Build 9879, Microsoft has not included any of the upcoming design changes. However in the Windows 10 build 9901 which was recently leaked on the web, there are hints of the upcoming overhaul of Modern Design Language. There are new set of icons found in the recent build which differs much from the old ones. As you can see in the image above, the icons are now while instead of grey. Also, the icons seems to be thinner and are not filled with any colors.

Take a look at the image below. The Minimize, Maximize and Close icons also got updated. I’ve placed the old style icons (blue title bar) on the top and the current style icons(black title bar) in the bottom.
