Leaked images reveal that Microsoft is working to improve the Settings app with more Fluent Design visual changes in the upcoming Windows 10 Redstone 4 update.

Microsoft recently released the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and it’s gradually rolling out with a slew of new features, improvements, and design changes. However, it doesn’t mean that the development has ended, Microsoft is already working in the next version, and new leaked images suggests that the company is focusing on bringing Fluent Design to the Settings.

According to a few screenshots tweeted out by Microsoft enthusiast, Rafael Rivera, reveals that the next version of Windows 10 will include an update Settings app that tweaks the designs and brings Fluent Design elements.

Alongside Reveal highlight, which is available with the Fall Creators Update, the Settings will integrate the Acrylic element adding a new form of transparency to left side menu.

The screenshots also suggest that the Redstone 4 update will also bring a tweaked version of the homepage for Settings that feature the sections descriptions in the right side, instead of the bottom making each button a rectangle instead of a square.

We’re still in the early days, and things can always change, including Microsoft discarding the idea completely, but thus far, at least in my opinion, looks like the Settings app will have a much better interface in the next version of Windows 10.
