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.

  1. Looks like a weird mix of Android, iOS and Windows 7. I hope they continue removing flatness and adding more colors.
