One of the big attractions of Windows 11 is undoubtedly the new graphical appearance. It’s code-named Mica and gives apps a more transparent look. It’s true that you can push the system a little harder. Definitely worth it. Even with the kind of specs we currently have, this shouldn’t be a problem. Now and after the full implementation in the new operating system see, the design of Windows 11 will reach more applications.
New Windows 11 design reaches more apps!
The new Mica design is typically visible in dark mode and balances the background color of Windows applications on the desktop and creates a translucent “color hierarchy”. The company says the mica effect doesn’t cause performance issues and can differentiate between multiple open instances of the same or multiple applications.
However, Microsoft has already updated important applications like Edge, Movies and TV, MS Paint, Snipping Tool, Photographs, Calculator and others. Now and as part of the next Windows 11 update (could be a feature or a cumulative update) Microsoft is planning to greatly expand Mica.
For example, in a preview version, Microsoft updated the title bar of some UWP apps like Feedback Hub in the background. The title bar is already semi-transparent and so are other details. As I mentioned earlier, Microsoft says that this design system doesn’t slow the computer down, and in fact it uses a lot less resources compared to Aero Glass.
Microsoft is now also working on a new design for Office applications such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and Notepad. This design will be adapted to release for all Windows 11.
Not all news is good news for the new Windows 11, however. Is that a very serious vulnerability was discovered last weekend that affects all operating systems, Windows 10 and 11 are already being exploited and putting many users at risk. This is undoubtedly a great danger as this vulnerability can lead to a person becoming the administrator of our machine. That means access to everything we have and more!
