Changes[edit | edit source]
- Winver now reports itself as "Version 1803" instead of the "Version 1709" that was used in previous builds.
- Updated some of the emoji designs.
- You can find an emoji by keyword in over 150 languages and locales, including British English, French, German, Spanish and many more.
- You have more control over UWP apps accessing the file system. Selected UWP apps will be granted permission to have broad file system access. If an app has the file system access restricted, a consent message will pop up, asking the user if they want to confirm or deny the request.
