Windows 10 build 10125 new set of icons

Microsoft is now focus on finishing Windows 10 and getting it ready for the summer release, more than it’s paying attention on adding new features. However, the company continues adding a few new touches here and there, in Windows 10 build 10125, we can now see that Microsoft is updating the icons that has been a big part of discussion throughout the development.

The new updated icons make a step back to the ones the company introduced in the previous builds of the operating system. Now the new icons have a more familiar look to what users were used to see in Windows 8 and Windows 7, but they have a more Windows 10 feeling.

While the Recycle Bin remains with the same look, virtually all the other icons have been updated. As now, there is a new icon for File Explorer, This PC, Network, Folders, Devices and Drives, Quick Access, and more.

Here is a screenshot with the icons style up to Windows 10 build 10122:
