Windows 11 gets a new Task Manager design

Microsoft is getting ready to overhaul Task Manager in Windows 11. Like the rest of the operating system, Task Manager gets a new design that matches Microsoft's new Fluent Design language. It seems that Microsoft hid the new design in the guts of the latest Windows 11 buildings, but engineering students Gustave Moncewhich previously got Windows 11 running on a phone, revealed the work in progress and shared it on Discord this week.

It is possible to enable the new Task Manager in the latest preview builds of Windows 11, but Microsoft has not officially announced the redesign. "This is a hidden feature of the new building," says Monce. "Everything is broken, though." It's definitely early days for this new design, but it already includes a dark mode and interface that closely matches the major design changes in Windows 11 - rounded corners, pastel colors and a focus on simplification.

The tabs in the existing Task Manager have been replaced with a sidebar that allows you to switch between the different sections of the app. Task Manager is a large older part of Windows that originally debuted with Windows NT 4.0. It has not had any significant changes in almost 10 years since it was last overhauled in Windows 8.

Microsoft is gradually redesigning most of the old parts of Windows. A new Media Player app is currently being tested, and Windows 11 will also get a redesigned Notepad app with dark mode support.
