Windows Sets

Windows Sets was expected to add in October update but it was not added becuase it was not ready to release.

According to Microsoft, user can enable the feature by heading to the Settings app, then Personalization, and Colours. After enabling light mode in Windows 10, you will see the Taskbar, Action Center, Start menu and other elements in the light colour scheme. Moreover, you can also bring white colour scheme to core elements, including volume flyout and notifications popup on your system.

Search and Cortana

Windows 10 April 2019 Update will add a new experience in Search and Cortana usage.
