In the near future, the Windows Task Manager will seem a lot more appealing

Screenshot: FireCube/Twitter – It’s hidden in the latest Windows 11 release, but the Task Manager has undergone a major overhaul. Microsoft made a significant step toward updating its desktop operating system with the introduction of Windows 11. However, there was a mixed reaction to the subsequent release of the patch. Things looked excellent in some places, wacky in others (a centered Taskbar, really?! ), and undisturbed in others.

Among the latter is Task Manager, a must-have utility that displays running processes, program history, and system performance. A ctrl+alt+delete command will bring you to a worn-out interface with low-res text, a white backdrop, and tabs that appear like they were made in the 1990s.

It is possible that the Task Manager may be redesigned in the near future, in line with the rest of Windows. Despite the fact that Microsoft has yet to acknowledge any changes, engineering student Gustave Monce shared an early build of a new Task Manager on Discord.

FireCubeStudios tweeted a screenshot of the new Task Manager’s Fluent Design style, which is used across Windows 11. Switching between processes, performance, program history, and startup has been made easier with a new left-hand sidebar. Additionally, this window supports Dark Mode, which is an important feature of Microsoft’s new operating system.

There haven’t been substantial updates to the Task Manager for more than a decade if the software giant follows through with their plans. The last time it was updated was in Windows 8. As a result, Windows 11’s jumble of old and new interfaces would look and feel more coherent.

If you’re a techie who cares more about having the correct tools than how they appear, Microsoft may have realized that upgrading its operating system means not leaving any corners unpainted when it comes to updating any older apps.

There is a fine line to walk between practicality and aesthetics. Oversimplifying essential tools in the sake of aesthetics might cost the organization a lot of support. Since the Task Manager’s aesthetic modifications are on top of the current codebase, we may even receive the ability to go back to the traditional design.

It seems to be a well-thought-out upgrade that improves the aesthetic of the program without fundamentally altering its functionality. In order to give it our full commendation before Microsoft releases an official release of the new Task Manager, which is hidden deep inside the current Windows versions, we must first wait for Microsoft to roll it out.
