The new icons will be vector graphics, so they should be able to render on screens of different sizes and resolutions.

And for a product that's used by more than one billion people, change can cause a lot of confusion and disruption.

In related news, Microsoft yesterday announced a Office 2019 for Mac Preview for commercial customers. Gradually rolling out over the next few months, users should first expect to see enhancements to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. The firm explained that users have muscle memory with the current ribbon, and it doesn't want to disrupt their work flow, so it will be careful in how this is implemented across those apps.

Changes will arrive on Office.com starting immediately, with Outlook Insiders who are blessed appropriately will take part in a limited rollout in July.

For everyone else, Microsoft is moving forward cautiously, especially when it comes to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Windows. As a result, the simplified ribbon doesn't have a release dates for these apps while Microsoft collects more feedback from a wider range of users.

The ribbon redesign is meant to provide a more simplified way for you to get things done. Word on the Web will be the first to get the new interface-some users can opt into it today-and in July, subscription versions of Outlook for Windows will also get it.

FG Declares Friday, Monday Public Holidays To Mark Eid-El-Fitr
The lunar month of Shawwal will begin with Eid al-Fitr (Eid ul-Fitr), also known as the festival of breaking the fast. In Ramzan, the 9th month of Islamic calendar, Muslims observe fast and abstain from food and water from dawn to dusk.

There are also features for IT that will help them simplify deployment and management.

On the Microsoft 365 blog, Chief Designer Jon Friedman notes that Fluent Design is coming to Office and Office.com.

According to Jared Spataro, Corporate Vice President for Office and Windows Marketing, these latest changes are based on three guiding principles- customers, context, and control.

Now You: Do you use Microsoft Office? There'll even ben "zero query search" that "will bring up recommendations powered by AI and the Microsoft Graph" as soon as you place a cursor in a search bar.

Customers: We're using a customer-driven innovation process to co-create the design of the Office apps. This feature is already available for commercial users in Office.com, SharePoint Online, and the Outlook mobile. Following on from the initial business preview of Office 2019 for Windows in April, the company has now announced that Office 2019 will be available as a preview for Mac machines with immediate effect.
