Right now, Microsoft is working in making major changes inWindows 10 design. The changes in design include the weather app, the taskbar search field, and the Edge browser. The company has been adopting these round cornered elements for so long.
Additionally, the system icons will also get a major redesign, they will get 3D effects quite similar to that of office.
One of the well-known media portals, Windows Central’s author, Zac Bowden has tweeted that the tech giant, Microsoft has been testing a new interface named as a screen-centric search interface.
that's not happening. The rounded corners are coming to Fluent Design. You'll see it all over Windows, Xbox, Office, and other products in the coming months/years.

Apparently, this interface is present in the preview of the version 20H1. This version will be released later in 2020.
Before this, the search box was located on the bottom left corner of the screen just next to Cortana. From now on, the personal assistant will have a new separated icon.
The company has also changed icons’ corners and made them round. Previously, author of Windows Central, Zac Bowden stated that this “seems to be a growing trend in the tech giant Microsoft’s design. Hope to see it show up in more areas of the tech giant Microsoft-s software in the coming weeks, months, and years.”
The author proclaims that these round corner changes are also implemented in Chromium Microsoft Edge. Therefore, taps and text fields with round corners will be seen in the browser.
One of the users observed that search field in weather app has also rounded corners. The above image demonstrates that the corners of a search field in the taskbar are also made round.
He proclaims that in Fluent Design, a language that foster light effects, depth layers, and translucent elements, the round corner fields will be there. From the past few years, the company has continuously made similar changes in Windows 10.
Just like an office, Microsoft Windows 10 just got a new icon and guess what, it also contains 3D effects.
Back in December, Microsoft’s head of Office design, Jon Friedman stated that there will be “an effort among various parts of the company to update all the icons in the same style.”
