tell MS to not load bloat again after YOU REMOVE IT omg please guys

Microsoft needs to hire proper UI designers/developers, their UI is hideous and inconsistent.

Plenty of people on deviant art done way much better job than this when it comes to 10 themes. They should hire them!

they should change file explorer to fluent design also. It would make everything seem so much better,
Rassoul Edji
Instead of updating old assets they need to completely revamp them. They teased a full redesign of the File Explorer as part of their Fluent Design video but we are seeing nothing about that. They need to slowly but surely update everything in Windows to have the same consistent Fluent design starting with the File Explorer and the 59 different styles of context menus. I understand that they are different UI frameworks but updating them isn't solving the problem, its just postponing it. Take your time to completely unify all of Windows elements under one UI framework - better for Microsoft themselves in the long run and a better experience for the end consumer. They're making the same exact mistake Google made with Material Design. Laying out an amazing set of guidelines but doing a horrible job of following them themselves.

I feel like it gets more inconsistent with every update, this update just looks even worse with broken "fluent design" elements.
smokecandyz
File Explorer, whether in light or dark mode, should have Fluent Design!
Frascaupazz
Why Microsoft made the dark theme for the file Explorer legacy version? Are they not working on the new UWP file Explorer as they showed us in the fluent design announcement video?
Dominik Seljan
Omg look at all the bloatware when the start menu is opened. This just shows how Microsoft is a sellout. This OS should be for professional use for christ sake.
MrDvbnhbq
So this is called 'New features' these days?
mcolman02
I like Windows 10 *except* for the fact that you have to spend about an hour deleting all the crap, changing registry values, turning off nonsense features and services, and digging through menus hidden all over the place to finally make it feel like a familiar desktop experience. Since you have to do this after almost every update I've gotten quite skilled at it, but those are hours of my life I will never get back. Other than that it's a great OS though.
HiddenStalker
how many version of windows 10 do they need to kill the old control panel ... and the file explorer , i already saw a new one with fluent design why did they removed it
Succy Succ Succ
macOS made a really good looking dank theme. And Windows? It's like a pile of trash piled onto another pile of trash. Microsoft should fire all their current UI designers and hire people from places like deviantarts. They should take note from Apple when it comes to UI design.
Narcis Margean
Bring back Windows 7
David Biate
Microsoft seriously need to redesign their icons. It's just so dated and yesterday. The recycle bin, the folder icons etc make it looks like part of Windows 10 is still living in the 90s.
Suman Roy
As usual looks boaring. . See MAC file explorer is way better polished and looks great.
Sam Brocklehurst
Ohhh look another update that adds a bunch of useless crap that installs itself even if I delete it. I really hope my copy of Windows 7 works when its finished downloading
João Almeida
It’s been 3 years since W10 came out and still yet we don’t have a solid design. This File Explorer still looks terrible
daviddaaannggg
Why the hell hasn’t fluent design been implemented yet at least in the file explorer and taskbar? I mean wtf was the point of revealing it so long ago if they weren’t gonna do it?? Windows continues to look sooo outdated
José Fernando Morera
Is Microsoft working on Tablet Mode? I mean the Surface Go look amazing... but it needs a better Tablet Mode so the UI works better.
Nicholas Zuccarelli
What a joke the Explorer looks like now. Should've kept it white and either started building a UWP version, or putting their effort into refining other areas of the OS, rather than creating an inconsistent mess.
Reedith Graham
Windows is getting pretty amazing loving the dark mode finally.
Carl Spiby
Another half-assed attempt by Microsoft, how hard is it to make the UI consistent?!
tapph tapph
WINDOWS 7 THE BESTTTTTTT
YamiYukiSenpai
I really hope the Fluent-designed File Explorer will show up soon.
Harrison Lamont
I understand that it's hard to change system applications to look better and be compatible with 1000s of devices, otherwise we'd have a launch of Windows Vista all over again, but I do feel that Microsoft is too focused on adding new features that most people will disable because it's new (e.g. My People, Sets). If MS focused on unification, that would make Windows 10 a much more appealing OS. Just look at that Game Bar! I, for one, think that looks pretty fantastic, and if everything could follow that or something similar, Windows 10 might actually be one step closer to looking alright.
Black Vadef
When will I be able to use Game Recorder with a gt 1030? I mean its above the minimum reqs, isnt it?
Sybren Generic Surname
I think ms should just scrap windows, and redo it from the ground up. I think apple had to change two lines of code to add dark mode system wide...
OutOfNamesToChoose
I would LOVE a Windows 10 theme that's like the one on the new Steam UI. Honestly, I think Windows would be better off if devs could independently make their own themes which could effect the UI, as opposed to just a wallpaper and a custom colour.
Faris Firdaws
That dark mode looks amazing, good to see finally some consistency coming in bit by bit
Techno Arafat
No gaming improvements
EddyGraphic
Microsoft is still fighting to implement a proper dark mode since 2015 while Apple did it in a year with macOS Mojave and it looks so much better and consistent than this, we are not asking them to apply it to third party apps, but system apps and other parts of the UI should be more consistent.
Arian Mozafari
I don't know what the hell is Windows design team doing actually.. Everything is just half-baked and undone, even fluent design and XAML UI Islands don't help at all (note that reveal and most acrylic parts are gone in this build which is a big meh. Anyone remembers islands?). Dear Dona Sarkar, please stop releasing biannual updates and focus on polishing the UI first for god sake... macOS isn't even close to Windows in terms of features and usability, but people love it more because of its uniformed clean UI. * drops mic *
S4lvo
Have they fixed the freezing on old pc? (Sorry for my english if i have write something wrong xD)
Wapper Jaw
So tire of MS blunders!!! This update refuses to let me change page file to a different drive. MS ... I DO NOT NEED NEW FEATURES ... JUST FIX YOUR DAMN SCREW UP BEFORE YOU ADD NEW FEATURES!!! Since I was having this issue ... I decide to format my drive and did a clean install of the new Windows 10 build ...etc. Which means I downloaded the new build with MediaCreationTool1809. I still have this issue!!!
irsyad harfiansyah
They should build an entirely new explorer. Move bit by bit just like the settings that will replace control panel in near future.
SUM1
Windows 10 has the worst UI I've ever seen.
Bartosz Olszewski
I paid $100 for a broken system, what a joke.
me2olive
How do they manage to break things like the acrylic effect in these updates, I can't see why they'd be messing with that at all just for a dark explorer theme? I can't work out how or why Microsoft seem to be having such difficulty in eliminating bugs, either those still present in Windows 10 or new ones introduced by updates. Did they fire all their QA staff or something?
Viktoras K.
Lol task manager shows 100%cpu usage, but all apps shows 0% cpu usage. All apps closed, just task manager open. And when clicking performance tab, task manager stops responding and closes. Cpu is i5-7300hq
Max Mustermann
Microsoft should go and theme the title bar for other apps aswell.
CreativeGamer TM
When you keep seeing new builds of Windows 10 but your Windows 10 PC *still doesn't* fully download the update and install it, especially if it's around 90% and, after restart, back at 0%.

WE NEED MINESWEEPER
Jamie Sharknado
Text box thing is going to be pretty handy with the surface go, and smaller tablets.
Jamie Megaputra
Is the update out yet?
Ian
such a mess
Feiprofessor
I hope windows also offer the ability to customize themes and Icons.
118Shadow118
Does the phone thing work with with Windows Phones? (yes, I'm asking if a Microsoft app for connecting the phone to a PC work with Microsoft's own phone OS? That's the world we live in where that is a valid question)
MutedMasterZ
I wish they'd improve tablet mode so it looks and feels more than Windows 8.1 :/
Nepxune
Ugh they ruined the dark file explorer the nailed perfectly the FIRST TIME. Its not even dark anymore its all Gray, this is a gray theme not a dark theme, who on earth thought making everything gray would be a good idea? Not to mention this ruins battery efficiency on OLED monitors and OLED devices.
Gerydome
Scrollbar is not dark.
Raul Rojas
Which is fantastic... but i still prefer gnome ha!
Quantum breeze
Should. Upgrade to Windows 11
Kimoon Nam
Ugly file explorer looks even more ulgy Please MS! Redesign it to fluent design system
Kindle Fire
MORE SYPWARE
Thịnh Vương Quốc
dark mode in File Explorer but the fonts should be White instead of Grey. The Ribbon should have some animation and one more thing scrollbar should scroll smooth that make windows more synchronous
Abir Hasan
Windows sucks at designing ... and they are planning to charge on update 😂😂 then windows 10 will extinct like Windows phone

This progress is pathetic.
Arief Surya
Top Amazing..... Very Good......
Ygor Cortes
I wonder if they'll ever include the Fluent Design elements in the files manager app...
Azenix
Does sets support middle clicking a folder to open in a new tab and keyboard shortcuts for a new tab (ctrl+t)?
Stuff1646
To be honest, Windows 10 is the most hacked together os I've ever seen with ui elements not matching nor proper way to implement stuff, tons of bloatware and unwanted bs along with updates that may uninstall critical drivers and cause the machine to show you a sad face instead of a proper error code. Don't get me started on their "E.T phone home" telemetry.. Honestly, Windows 10 doesn't need an update it needs update that replaces all excising UI elements instead of adding to an excising u.i from windows7...just saying..
/\ J ! T \-\
Dark file explorer UI looks shit without transparency effects... The Mojave Dark Mode is far better than Windows. Microsoft should learn from Mac
Alien Galaxy
i havent get update of new version
Robert Collins
Could MS fix the April break before releasing more?
Sebastian Hahn
Control Panel isn't legacy imo. A lot of options are missing or pared down in the "settings" app, and until that's rectified, Control Panel is still current.
ilooktheweb
more nonsense update grade . just aesthetic
so_useless •
Arch Linux is much better ^^
Glimmy Glam
Once they finalize this build, lets hope all other items *control panel ,task manager will be skinned dark.
Stephen Sanders
overall Microsoft is doing a great job
RTSA
They should just do away with old features such as control panel and bring everything into the new. Then make everything follow a strict design because everything is just inconsistent and ugly. The solid colours look horrendous sometimes. If everything was consistent then I'd be so happy. I mean sometimes the design choices are questionable. Mac just looks so much better and the same with android.
DrStormpooper
I'm not getting that allow notification on my phone, don't know why, I've looked into fixes on the microsoft site but nothing worked.
Blue Jeans
I can spot so many bugs in file explorer dark theme (when Microsoft declared it "finalised") but this guy didn't even mention any of those. So much with Microsoft kool-aid?
Saeed ProLink
Now I know why Microsoft says windows 10 is the last windows Os.
IM Ibatuan
Have they fixed Windows10's incompatibility with legacy drivers? My laptop's brightness control, special fn functions and vga are all not working so i reverted back to Win7. I am using MSI CR430🤣

Me: *Sees dark theme 1:05 * Me: "Welp reason enough for me to update." Me: *Exits YouTube*
Brent Mifsud
macOS Mojave darkmode still destroys this. Why is is so difficult for Microsoft to implement this? It took one release for Apple to do it, whereas darkmode has been available in parts of windows 10 since around its release.
Joseph DiSalvo
Microsoft needs to start the ball rolling on making their user interface elements more modular - using variables changeable globally rather than baking everything in. It's so weird that it takes a multi billion dollar company years to change the theme of an OS one application, ONE DIALOG BOX, at a time.

Windows 10 UI have been inconsistent since it was launched and it should be sorted by now.,
Jake Duggan
Why do we still have legacy file explorer and control panel?
Chris theGreek
i could tolerate windows only on my work , on my home i don't want anything that has to do with microsoft , everything that comes from microsoft bores me as hell ! Thank you ms i'm good ! Apple Macs and linux are the only considerable options for me.
Prakhar Srivastava

Hello again a work it finished representing well Microsoft windows world... something not finished looking like crap. It is a shame for the price we pay for it...

Reminds me of macOS Mojave‘s Finder.app dark mode
Not The One
The "My Phone" app probably won't work for me since I'm still using a Lumia 950xl. However, I use Onedrive for photos and I can already text from my PC through my phone so I'm not sure what this would do for me.

How do I disable window update?
Resonance of Illumination - Ambition of Void
"It is looking great now" Sir, you are objectively blind or have a horrible taste in design.
Jayb Yorong
I miss WHITE UI. As in white #ffffff. Cant set on windows 10. And manipulating transparency . Hope they add those 2

Will this fix the windows apps keep crashing?

Hi Zac. Will File Explorer bring back Recent Places like in Windows 7? Does My Phone work with iPhone and Android phones?
