Microsoft is preparing a major OS update for Windows 10 in 2021 that sources say will bring with it a significant design refresh to the Windows UI. Microsoft is planning to update many top-level user interfaces such as the Start menu, Action Center, and even File Explorer, with consistent modern designs, better animations, and new features.

This UI project is codenamed “Sun Valley” internally and is expected to ship as part of the Windows 10 “Cobalt” release scheduled for the holiday 2021 season. Internal documentation describes the project as “reinvigorating” and modernizing the Windows desktop experience to keep up with customer expectation in a world driven by other modern and lightweight platforms.
