Microsoft is now rolling out Windows 10 build 19659 for devices in the Fast ring of the Windows Insider Program. This is the eighth preview available for testers with changes and improvements expected to arrive in future releases of the operating system.

Windows 10 build 19569, according to the company, is a minor but significant update. Although, you won’t find new features, starting with this flight, Microsoft is introducing a set of redesigned icons for all the apps, including Alarms & Clock, Calculator, Mail, Calendar, and others.

Microsoft even published an article explaining how technology has evolved to help ease the complicated modern life, and something like icons can provide simple point of reference to navigate the operating system more efficiently.

And for this reason, the company has started a “multi-year effort” to redesign the icons across all the products. It started with the Office apps and services, and now, it’s the turn of Windows 10.

The new icons inherit the same familiar look, but they were redesign using the Fluent Design System language to give them rounded corners, depth, and colors to the iconography for a more modern and consistent look on Windows 10 and across platform, including Android, iOS, and Mac (as applicable).

Build 19569 includes many of the new icons, but many of the iconography will show up as apps receive updates from the Microsoft Store.

In addition to the new icons, this releases also ships with fixes for OneDrive, SCSI drivers, and Start menu.
