Microsoft's Windows 10 feature update that's slated for the second half of this year is set to bring some big visual changes to the OS, and it's codenamed Sun Valley. So unsurprisingly, a lot of the Windows 10 Insider Preview builds that we've seen are showing up with visual changes, and that's no different today.

Today, the company released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 21343, and it has one big new feature: new icons in the File Explorer app. This isn't the "new icon" story that you're used to either, like when the Edge browser was promised new Fluent Design icons and it just looked like the refresh button was rotated by about 45 degrees. For the new icons in the File Explorer, you can't miss them, as you can see in the image above.
