The Windows 11 update is reportedly coming soon to provide an upgrade to some Microsoft applications, known to have a classic look before the new version of the operating system. This includes Paint, Photos, Calculator, PowerToys, and other built-in apps. The expansion of Windows 11 is massive and focuses on creating a uniform user interface, much like Windows 10.
However, Windows 10 has some apps that it didn’t upgrade in the new UI despite the big change that the Windows operating system described to a whole new level. Additionally, this upgrade would only happen after Windows 10 has reigned for six years.

UKRAINE – 2021/06/24: In this photo a Windows 11 logo can be seen on the screen of a smartphone with a Microsoft website in the background. Microsoft introduced Windows 11, the next generation Windows operating system (OS), at an event on June 24, 2021.
In the middle of this upgrade, Microsoft rolled out Insider Preview Build 22000.65, and that would give anyone who signed up as developers to try the update. This would give them a first glimpse of the ongoing work Microsoft is doing for Windows, as well as everything it has already fixed.
On the flip side, apart from the Insider Preview Build patch and upgrades, users would soon see an upgrade to their Windows 11. And while most of them are cosmetics, they would still infuse new life to some old applications whose user interfaces were left out in time.
This includes some classic apps like calculator, photos, painting, etc. as stated by Windows Latest.
What’s more iconic here is that Microsoft is bolstering “PowerToys,” something that has been brought back to Windows 10, since Windows 95.

First of all, the calculator. Now, that app wasn’t exactly “left” in Microsoft’s previous UI, as Windows 10 gave it almost the same theme as its previous UI.
However, what it would feature now is an app with rounded edges, showcasing Windows 11 colors and theme with light blue, white, and black.
The Paint app featured the UI or look of Windows 7, even with the release of Windows 8 and Windows 10. That said, it would soon get its most anticipated UI upgrade, this which would give it a refreshed look.
What that would change are the “rigid” feel of the app as an old-fashioned experiment to create minor edits or doodles.
Photos may be an app that was introduced in Windows 8, which is macOSX, but it still allowed storing images in Microsoft to have a gallery. This pushed the app further back to its previous storage on a folder.
The PowerToys returns from Windows 10, and before, from Windows 95. Microsoft energizes the application and does not stop its development, unlike Internet Explorer which would say goodbye to it next year.
This tool would allow Microsoft Windows users to take advantage of its variety of features, which was appreciated in its version released almost 20 years ago.
