Windows 10 Settings app shows up with updated design

The next version of Windows 10 may introduces visual changes on the Settings app similar to the design of the Microsoft account.

As part of the version 1903 (19H1) development for Windows 10, Microsoft is planning to add new visual changes to the Settings app. A few Twitter users (via Neowin) have been tweeting screenshots of the preview build 18298, which shows an updated version of the Settings app with a new header design.

The header includes personal information about the user, alongside status for Windows Update, Microsoft rewards, and Your Phone feature, which is a design very similar to the visuals that you’ll find today in the Microsoft account online.

Although there’s a chance of these improvements to ship with the next version of Windows 10, currently it’s only an A/B test for a select number of testers.
