With the latest Microsoft 10 Insider Preview Build 21343, users will get a number of changes. The most obvious change is the addition of new icons in File Explorer.
The company has slowly made modifications to the icons in Windows 10 over the last year, the most recent is for Notepad. Some system icons getting a change in File Explorer include the Recycle Bin, Documents folder, and devices like disk drives.
Several changes, such as the orientation of the folder icons and the default file type icons, have been made for greater consistency across Microsoft products that show files, announcing the changes to the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview.
Notably, the top-level user folders such as Desktop, Documents, Downloads and Pictures have a new design that should make it a little easier to tell them apart at a glance.Microsoft
