That's why Microsoft today unveiled the Fluent Design System, a new set of design guidelines that will slowly but surely give Windows 10, Microsoft Office, and all its other apps a slick new look, starting later this year. The Fall Creators Update, likely to arrive in September, aims to bring aspects of the Windows experience everywhere you go.
An update of Microsoft's Windows 10 software will include features for playing games and watching video in the realm of "mixed reality". Dubbed as the Windows 10 Redstone 3, Microsoft has today announced that the next version of Windows 10 will continue focusing on creativity, giving it the title of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. This and other new Windows 10 features are part of Microsoft's Graph platform. It will enable applications to capture what a user is doing before they log out and let them pick up right from where they left off on another device.
If you pop over to your phone, Microsoft's smart assistant Cortana will ask if you want to pick up where you left off.

When you select a given file from the picker, it will automatically download and open in the app - like a local file would. But rather than being a successor to UWP, Fluent Design System is a design language and design approach, akin to Metro, the touch-friendly interface technology that shipped with Windows 8, Shaw said. Microsoft had a similar capability in Windows 8 but later removed it. It is a next-generation board portal that leverages data from lines of business applications to provide a single source of truth for executives to steer the business in real time.
The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will also see the magic of mixed reality brought to consumers around the world. "For developers, Fluent Design is built to help you create more expressive and engaging apps that work across a wide range of device and input diversity".
Microsoft also debuted a new mixed reality controller at the conference that will work with multiple upcoming virtual reality headsets to offer mixed reality experiences. Microsoft stated that developers in the USA and Canada can pre-order an Acer ($299 USD) or HP ($329 USD) Windows Mixed Reality Headset Developer Edition starting today from the Microsoft Store for delivery later this summer.
