Windows 11 is getting a new Task Manager design

Microsoft is preparing to overhaul Windows 11’s Task Manager. The Task Manager will be redesigned to match Microsoft’s Fluent Design language, just like the rest of Windows 11. The new design was hidden by Microsoft in recent Windows 11 builds. However, Gustave Monce, an engineering student, discovered the work-in progress and shared it on Discord. Microsoft has not officially announced the redesign. Monce says that this is a hidden feature of the new build. “All things are broken though.” Although it’s early days for this new design design, it already features a dark mode with interface that closely matches the major design changes in Windows 11.
The tabs in the Task Manager are now replaced by a sidebar that allows for you to switch between sections of the app. The Task Manager is a legacy part of Windows. It was introduced with Windows NT 4.0. It has not seen any significant updates in almost 10 years since it was last updated in Windows 8.
Microsoft is slowly redesigning many of Windows’ legacy components. The new Media Player app is currently being tested. Windows 11 will also get a redesigned Notepad app that supports dark mode.
