UPDATED 5/22: On Windows 10, starting with version 1903, May 2019 Update, the Settings app is getting a number of changes, including a new header design in the homepage that allows you to take quick actions for things like signing in and managing your account. In addition, it also gives you an “easy to glance” at system status, such as when updates are available.
While it’s a new interesting experience inspired by the Microsoft account homepage design, it’s not clear if the feature will be available for everyone. However, if you’re running the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, and you don’t see the header, there’s a way to force it to appear in your installation using a third-party tool called “mach2” from Rafael Rivera.
