It is already known that the Windows 10 Mobile Action Center is getting an overhaul for the upcoming Anniversary Update next month. However, a report released today suggests that Microsoft may have wider plans to complete redesign the Action Center in future Windows 10 Builds.
MSPoweruser says it was handed an image which shows a document that the outlet claims is directly from Microsoft’s communications department. The document in the image seems to point to a major change for the Action Center over upcoming Windows 10 Mobile builds.
Action Center buttons would be separated into “Actions” and “Toggles” while there also appears to be a new brightness slider in the images. In its report, MSPoweruser says that the redesign was decided upon after internal feedback.
It is worth remembering that this is still filed firmly in the rumor pile as Microsoft has not even hinted at this overhaul of the AC. If it does drop, it is almost certainly not going to be for a while, and could come with Microsoft’s next major Windows 10 Upgrade.
That is, of course, the Redstone 2 release, which is not expected to drop until Spring, 2017. So, if Microsoft is working on wider Action Center, end users will not see it for the best part of a year. Although, the company is reported to be preparing the first Redstone 2 previews for as early as mid-August, so these Action Center changes could come then.
If you are still hankering for some Action Center changes, then the Windows 10 Anniversary Update should be your first port of call. That upgrade is dropping on August 2 and will feature easier access through a new icon, making incoming notifications more visible, denoting the application that sent the notification, and other changes.
