It seems as if Microsoft is planning to introduce a new version of its default Hero wallpaper for Windows 10. The latest Windows 10 cloud build brings an upgraded version of the Hero wallpaper for the Windows 10 that was originally introduced in June 2015.

The new wallpaper for Windows 10 was spotted at in Windows 10 Cloud build 15046 by those at Windows Central. It seems as if Windows wants to go vintage with the new wallpaper which appears less complex and similar to the old Windows. Some reports had suggested that the Redmond software giant is planning to use this reimagined Windows 10 wallpaper just for Windows 10 Cloud. However, it would not be surprising if Microsoft also offered the latest Hero image with Windows 10 Creators Update.

As earlier reports had stated Windows 10 cloud is a lightweight version of the Windows 10 aimed at being a competition against Chrome OS that is trending these days. The lightweight Windows 10 cloud will only be able to run Unified Windows Platform (UWP) apps installed from the Windows Store. The revamped Hero image that has cropped up in the latest builds also supports that lightweight theme of the Windows 10 cloud, further advocating its central theme.
