The arrival of Windows 11 brought a slew of design innovations, both for the operating system and for some of the system’s most well-known tools. Changes that have just started and a lot more to see, something Panos Panay has made known, using Paint and the new design they are already testing as an example.

The popular Microsoft application to see how, coinciding with the arrival of Windows 11, will come a renewal of Paint focused on changing the graphic appearance to make the appearance more consistent with the design of the new version of the operating system .

Better integration in Windows 11

Right now in Windows 11 we find a version of Paint halfway between what should happen and what we’ve been using until now. It sports curved corners, but the interface changes are minimal.

Here’s another first look at @Windows 11. It’s the beautifully redesigned Paint app, coming soon to Windows Insiders. Can’t wait to see your creations! # Windows11 #WindowsInsiders

Now, Panos Panay has posted a brief preview of the new look Paint will be wearing through a video posted to his Twitter account. Next to the rounded corners, a drawing appears in which the color picker gives way from the palette with squares to the one formed by circles.

There are also more rounded corners, new icons and most importantly a new dark theme which helps Paint to integrate better with the Windows 11 aesthetic when we use the background in dark tones. What is striking is that this renewed paint still retains the ribbon design for its functions.

For now this version of Paint is still in development, but Microsoft should be releasing it soon, possibly in the next few weeks.
