The Last icons From Windows 95 Are About To Be Wiped Out From Windows 10 By Microsoft

This is part of Microsoft's plan to make the Windows 10 interface more consistent.

Microsoft is about to refresh all the icons that date back to its Windows 95 era. Since Windows 10, the software giant has been slowly improving the icons they use, as part of a "comprehensive visual rejuvenation" plan rolling out later this year.

Since March, a number of new icons in the system have also appeared in the File Explorer software, folders, Recycle Bin, drive icons and many other applications. Now Microsoft also wants to completely replace the old icons from the Windows 95 era, sometimes you still see in Windows 10.

The Windows Latest page recently discovered new icons for hibernation, network connections, memory, floppy drives and many more that are part of shell32.dll files in Windows 10 versions. before. DLLs are an important part of the Windows Shell, used to display icons in various dialogs across the operating system.

It's also a key reason why Windows icons have been inconsistent over the years. Usually Microsoft will modernize other parts of the operating system, while Windows 95-era icons are thrown into a dialog box accessible via shell32.dll.
Hopefully this doesn't mean that one day Microsoft will ask you to use a floppy drive to boot Windows 10. The era of Windows associated with these ancient icons is over a decade ago.

Improving consistency in Windows is also part of an effort to completely revamp the design of Windows 10 with the Sun Valley edition. These display changes are expected to appear in Windows 10 21H2 update coming October of this year. Microsoft has not officially announced this process in its Sun Valley update, but a recruitment post earlier this year revealed a "full visual rejuvenation of Windows."

Chances are during Microsoft's Developer Build Conference later this month, we'll get to know more about these changes.
