Lately, newer Windows 10 builds have included a new Recycle Bin icon that replaces the old well-known icon from Windows Vista.
The old one looked like this:
Microsoft changed that icon to this:
However, there was much furor and controversy over it. Lots of people started to complain about the new Recycle Bin icon (although I don't see what the big deal is since it is customizable). Microsoft got mostly negative feedback about Windows 10 icons and so they finally decided to replace at least the Recycle Bin icon.
In the most recent builds of Windows 10, (upwards of 10049, which are not available publicly), the Recycle Bin icon looks like this:
Unlike the previous one, this one reminds me of the Recycle Bin icon from Windows 95-98:
Besides the icon, the leaked pictures also indicate some other minor tweaks happening to the new Start Menu in Windows 10. For example, the Power button is moved from the top right corner to the bottom left corner of the Start menu and is located now near the "All apps" link.
There is also an updated icon for the virtual desktops (or as Microsoft calls it, multitasking) but aside from that, it does not look like there is much else new.
The search box takes the whole height of the taskbar and has no borders around it even if the Start menu is not opened.
What are your impressions about the new icon? Do you like it or do you think Microsoft should change it again? Or you don't care about it and have much bigger problems in Windows 10 to be concerned about? Tell us in the comments.
