Will we see Windows 11? Check out the “rounded” Sun Valley update

With the advent of Windows 10, Microsoft claimed that this was the latest version of the operating system. In other words, this version will be updated and maintained in the future, but will not have a clear successor. This week, Microsoft announced that it will introduce “One of the most significant Windows updates of the last decade.” By this is meant the update, hitherto internally referred to as Sun Valley. While it was still expected to be Windows 10 version 21H2, in recent days there has been speculation that the US giant will choose a different name – quite possibly Windows 11: This would tell Microsoft that this is a really significant upgrade.

A light passing through the logo could also indicate a dual display, split screen, or other upcoming feature

Proponents of the theory that Windows 11 will be introduced on June 24 point to two indications. First, the official graphics enticing the show, which shows the light passing through the Windows logo. On the floor, however, it creates a shape that does not correspond to the logo itself, divided into four parts. Instead, the shadows on the floor should form the number 11. In addition, the press conference is scheduled for 11:00 Eastern Time (ET). It doesn’t have to be a coincidence. The question remains whether Microsoft really wants to give us the numbering of the operating system, or just trying to raise awareness of the upcoming performance. Recall that many brands, including Apple, hide in their teasers various indications of upcoming products.

Whatever news we see on June 24, the Sun Valley update will probably bring the biggest design changes since the introduction of Windows 10. The user interface should undergo various changes, some of which have been taken from the discontinued Windows 10X operating system. At first glance, the visible change should be the rounded corners of application windows (applies to Win32 and UWP) and other elements.

Rounded edges are currently also popular, for example, in mobile OS or in competing macOS from Apple, but we can remember them from Windows 7 or Windows Vista. With the deployment of the Metro design, the corners have returned, which will now be rounded up again.

There have been several tastings of the Sun Valley update in the past. In the latest screenshots, which should come from a keynote within the recent Microsoft Build 2021 developer conference, we can see the changes on the examples of Outlook, Teams or Edge. In addition to the rounded corners, we can also notice the modified surroundings of the buttons for minimizing, maximizing and closing the window.

As the screenshot from the Task Display function shows, a context menu called up with the right mouse button will also get a more modern look with rounded corners.
