It looks like Microsoft is preparing a major update to the user interface of the built-in Calendar app in Windows 10. A number of screenshots reveal a new version of the software (which is currently in active development). It features more Fluent Design elements and just looks beautiful.
Windows 10 has a Calendar app pre-installed out of the box. It is available in the Start menu. Occasionally, it receives updates from the Microsoft Store. It is useful for those who need just a basic calendar app for storing important events, appointments, holidays etc.
Mail and Calendar for Windows 10 are new apps from Microsoft to help you stay up-to-date on your email, manage your schedule, and stay in touch with people you care about the most. Designed for both work and home, these apps help you communicate quickly and focus on what’s important across all your accounts. It supports Office 365, Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, Yahoo! and other popular accounts. Also, you can make Windows 10 Calendar show national holidays.
An internal in-development version of the Calendar app comes with a new design. The app features a new bright and colorful theme, with a fancy background image. Also, it features a new hamburger menu with Fluent design.
In addition to the shortcuts to open the People, Mail, and To-Do apps on the left, the left pane has also received a button to create a new event, so it will remain available all the time.
It is not known when the update will reach the production branch. This upcoming change wasn't officially announced yet.
You can find the Mail and Calendar app on Microsoft Store.
