  • The Share UI now matches the Microsoft Edge theme if its different from the rest of the system.
  • When a favorite is added in Microsoft Edge, you get an animation that indicates where users can find their most important websites in the future.

Cortana improvements[edit | edit source]

  • Adjusted the appearance of Cortana notifications, this includes adjusting the buttons to span across the notification instead of being located to the right, as well as automatically expanding the first one in sight in a group of notifications, as well as several bug fixes.

Hyper-V improvements[edit | edit source]

  • Added a new "virtual machine gallery" under quick create in Hyper-V. This feature does not function in this build. Choosing “Local installation source” will allow the user to pick an image from their PC.
  • Moved the options of the VM name and networking in Hyper-V have been moved to a "More options" section, which introduces another new feature in said hypervisor. The new feature provides a default network, so that the virtual machines that you use share networking with the host using NAT.

Other[edit | edit source]

  • Notification badges for people pinned to the taskbar now blend in the color of the theme if you have colored themes enabled in Personalization.
  • You don't have to log out and log back in to fix blurry apps (after a change to the display scale factor) on high-DPI displays.
  • Receiving emojis from people pinned to the taskbar is now referred to as a "pop".
  • Searching with the emoji panel now supports Emoji 5.0. Additional keywords were added.
  • Added a tooltip when you hover over emojis, as well as the emoji categories. Fixed a bug when the emoji panel was on the dark theme, the close button was black on black.
  • Various improvements to the touch keyboard and the handwriting panel as detailed in the release announcement. One notable feature was to add a sound with each key press on the touch keyboard.
  • Updated the Game Mode icon on the Game bar.
  • Improvements to the GPU section in Task Manager. These include updating the UI layout, adding more details such as the DirectX version and the physical location of the GPU in the PC.
  • Removed Cortana Lasso and camera roll insights. The cross-device Map Handoff feature was also removed.
  • Various other bug fixes and improvements listed in the release announcement.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • The battery status may not update on certain laptops.
  • Some third-party firewall software may make Windows Defender Security Center show an "Unexpected" state.
