Windows 10 Camera, Calendar, Mail, and Snip & Sketch Receive New Icons

Snip Sketch Icon

The built-in Camera app in Windows 10 receives a brand new icon. This update is another step in direction Microsoft took with their intention to create a set of new icons for all platforms.

Windows 10 has a UWP app (Universal Windows Platform) called "Camera". It provides a quick way to capture photos. Just point and shoot to take pictures automatically. The same camera experience is available across Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and phones. If your device comes with a built-in camera or you have connected a webcam, you can use the Camera app.

The Camera app in Windows 10 receives a new icon, following the Office suite, Mail, Outlook, and Calendar which reflects the modern design of Microsoft's products. Here is how it looks.

The next screenshot demonstrate the new Start Menu layout with a few more icons which should reach Windows 10 Insider Preview in the near future.

The following apps have received new colorful icons:

  • Mail
  • Calendar
  • Camera
  • Snip & Sketch

The Snip & Sketch icon at a glance reminds of the classic Snipping Tool icon. The other icons are of blue colors.

Finally, the Mail and Calendar apps for Android have also got a new, unique design.

  1. Looks a lot better than the monochromatic crap they’ve had there for years. Though the overuse of blue concerns me a bit.
    I hope they make decent icons for this garbage OS someday.

  2. It’s not the end of the Flat Metro experiment… but you can see it from here.
    The sooner they roll these out across the OS and kill of all remnants of square tiles the better.

  3. Windows XP called and wants its blue back xD
    Personally I liked the sleek black & white look of the original Windows 10 1507 better (even emojis were still b&w then).
