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!

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.
tell MS to not load bloat again after YOU REMOVE IT omg please guys
they should change file explorer to fluent design also. It would make everything seem so much better,
File Explorer, whether in light or dark mode, should have Fluent Design!
So this is called 'New features' these days?
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.
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?
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
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.
Why do I have 100% Disk Usage
Deviant XS
I feel like it gets more inconsistent with every update, this update just looks even worse with broken "fluent design" elements.
Hammy Sammy
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
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.
tapph tapph
Me: *Sees dark theme 1:05 * Me: "Welp reason enough for me to update." Me: *Exits YouTube*
Max Mustermann
Microsoft should go and theme the title bar for other apps aswell.
When will I be able to use Game Recorder with a gt 1030? I mean its above the minimum reqs, isnt it?
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.
The dark theme looks good, but I'll stick to GNU/Linux.
CreativeGamer 03
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%.
Robert Collins
Could MS fix the April break before releasing more?
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
Kimoon Nam
Ugly file explorer looks even more ulgy Please MS! Redesign it to fluent design system
I really wish that quick access bar had transparent effect like settings. And they should really use dark theme instead of "grey".

"It is looking great now" Sir, you are objectively blind or have a horrible taste in design.
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.
Glimmy Glam
Once they finalize this build, lets hope all other items *control panel ,task manager will be skinned dark.
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
Bartosz Olszewski
I paid $100 for a broken system, what a joke.
Windows Central... does the ink-box work in desktop apps or only in UWPs?
Jamie Megaputra
Is the update out yet?

How to dark mode in explora and file background

Fernan Aquino
Oh hey, Zach's using a nokia 8
Ameer Jalil
Thought I accidentally clicked an old Alpha M video with the intro song.
Yuri Katz
Shauna Ymos
thanks for the update. . . .. .but windows 10 should have a feature to change folders as easily as FolderChanger. I use it to manage and organize my windows folders easily. Google "folderchanger" .. works great
A dark Task-Manager would be nice.
Muhammad Ismail
how can i download Windows 10 Build 17733?
Have they fixed the freezing on old pc? (Sorry for my english if i have write something wrong xD)
Alien Galaxy
i havent get update of new version
Wait, native dark mode in explorer? Finally!
You should change that intro, it looks more outdated than my hp laptop from 2003, that shit is so old it has 512mb of ram and 50gb of storage
Ygor Cortes
I wonder if they'll ever include the Fluent Design elements in the files manager app...
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
Danger Dan
I "upgraded" from Windows 10 to 8.1, best decision ever.
Sword Art X

sagar pandey

tss son sastha

Idee Vee

Dylan Quek
congrats on 300k
will that phone app work for apple devices also?
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.
How long before skip ahead gets a new build? It's been two weeks now.
Edward Torneus [DEAD DEAD]
Nokia 8 perfect
windows development should be centralized for a more consistent experience
Ludvig Holst
Do not under any circumstance change the File Explorer! I use it all the time! I wont be able to use it again :(
Wasifatehi Emon
Dan,do you use Nokia 8 now??
Wouter van den Broeke
Time to uninstall uxthemepatcher :(
Tony Barrett
My my, if that's a fresh build, MS are really loading up the system with junk now aren't they! Can't get over how many junks apps are in the 'Explore' section in the start menu.
Jake Duggan
Why do we still have legacy file explorer and control panel?
I hate the reveal effect.
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 *
Microsoft fired up their photocopiers yet again, I see.
Why i havnt this update?
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
Quantum breeze
Should. Upgrade to Windows 11
owais Qureshi
noooo its not full dark still...
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.
Akeem B
Microsoft should just create a system wide dark mode. Everything white should be dark. That's how a dark mode should be.
Just 98
I thought they were going to redesign the file explorer first
is it available for all Windows builds?
Nahid Islam
Reminds me of macOS Mojave‘s dark mode
fors los
How do I disable window update?
Hi Zac. Will File Explorer bring back Recent Places like in Windows 7? Does My Phone work with iPhone and Android phones?
I hope windows also offer the ability to customize themes and Icons.
Andy Rotten
Still needs transparency or blur
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.
My dream is almost coming to be
I wish they'd improve tablet mode so it looks and feels more than Windows 8.1 :/
Raul Rojas
Which is fantastic... but i still prefer gnome ha!
Agus Kardi
bad design
Ken Matharoo
aaaaaaaand MS still wants you to get their apps on your phone
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)
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.
Will this fix the windows apps keep crashing?
Jayb Yorong
I miss WHITE UI. As in white #ffffff. Cant set on windows 10. And manipulating transparency . Hope they add those 2
Ross Eldrin Taupa
How do I turn on dark mode in file explorer?
Stephen Sanders
overall Microsoft is doing a great job
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.
Windows 10 UI have been inconsistent since it was launched and it should be sorted by now.,
moumen sawady
1:10 am !! man you're working late.
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.
