windows-10.jpg

Changes in Windows 10X are coming to Windows 10 consumer devices in the second half of 2021 with the 21H2 release.

One of these changes is to the boot progress animation circle on the Windows 10 boot logo screen.

Currently, the boot progress animation shows a Windows 8 like style circle spinning with a dotted line.

The new Windows 10X boot progress animation shows a WinUI3 style circle spinning with a solid line.

If you would like to have the Windows 10X boot logo progress animation now in Windows 10 instead of waiting for the 21H2 release, you can enable it.

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the Windows 10X boot logo progress circle animation in Windows 10.

You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable the Windows 10X boot logo progress animation in Windows 10.

This will only work in Windows 10 build 19587 and higher.
