Microsoft is updating its built-in apps in Windows 11. Microsoft has released the new Snipping tool, mail app, and calculator updates for the Dev channel. Windows insiders having Dev build install instead of Beta can now test these updates. These updates are to match these apps with Windows 11’s visual style.
In the new update, Microsoft is replacing the existing Snipping tool and Sketch app with a new single Snipping tool application having the best features of both the apps and new UI. In windows 11, you will be able to open the new Snipping tool by pressing Win + shift +S.
After the screenshot has been taken, the new snipping tool will open edit options for cropping and more. Microsoft also added dark mode in the new Snipping tool so it can match your taste of the theme.
Along with the Snipping tool, Microsoft is updating the Mail and Calendar app to match these with Windows 11 overall visual style.
“We have added rounded corners and other adjustments to make them look and feel part of Windows 11,”
–Dave Grochocki, a senior program manager lead for Windows inbox apps.
The calculator app is also getting some updates, but minor. Microsoft not just rewritten the code of the calculator app in C# but also allowed developers to contribute through GitHub.
