One of the greatest changes that Microsoft is focusing on for Windows 10 is definitely an overhauled UI that would give up on sharp corners for rounded ones included in an updated design language.
Rounded corners will sooner or later be accessible all over Windows 10, but Microsoft obviously makes the switch gradually because it completes the testing more refreshed parts in the operating-system.
The search experience of Windows 10 may be the first one to get the rounded corners, so that as as it happens, the restyled interface has already been obtainable in the operating-system by default but disabled so nobody can see it.
Simultaneously, however, with a few simple steps that involve the development of new registry entries, anyone can experience the overhauled Windows 10 interface by enabling this restyled search UI in front of its public launch.
Obviously, since the tutorial involves creating new registry items, you should first create a backup of the device, simply to make sure you can restore it should anything go wrong.
Basically, it all comes down to the development of three different entries. So first open the Registry Editor by clicking the beginning menu and then typing regedit.exe. Next, follow the steps below to create these entries (according to WL):
Registry entry #1
Visit the following location within the Registry Editor:
Right-click in the right page of the screen and create a new DWORD 32-bit Value called:
Give it value 1 and then you can proceed to the next step. Be sure you don’t add any blank spaces in the name from the entry.
Registry entry #2
Now, you need to browse to the following location, and in the Registry Editor:
This time around, you need to produce a subkey of Flighting. So right-click the Flighting folder > New and name the new key:
Once again, be sure you don’t add any blank spaces at the end of the name.
Registry entry #3
And finally, choose the recently-created Override key and then right-click in the right pane to produce a new DWORD (32-bit Value) called:
Double-click ImmersiveSearchFull to alter its value and enter 1 making use of your keyboard.
In the same position, produce a new DWORD (32-bit Value) called:
Do the same thing to change its value, however this time enter 9.
When you’re done, you have to reboot the explorer or simply sign out of your account or restart the pc. When you log back in, clicking the search icon in the taskbar should now launch another search window that no longer includes Cortana, but which also has the rounded corners that I was referring to earlier.
The search experience is the same as the main one you get by default in Windows 10, so the biggest changes here are that the) it runs in the own window detached in the taskbar and b) you get these rounded corners that will soon expand to the entire operating-system.
It’s understandable that at this time, this UI makeover is still in the early days, so it might take some time until Microsoft readies it for production devices. Since 19H2 update is likely to be only a minor update, there’s a big chance that the spring 2020 feature update for Windows 10 would introduce this highly-anticipated UI facelift.
