New features and changes[edit | edit source]

File Explorer[edit | edit source]

  • The context menu and other right-click menus in File Explorer now use the acrylic material.
  • The "New" button in the File Explorer command bar has been changed to a split button, where the main button now instantly creates a new folder while the dropdown arrow opens the menu.

Shell[edit | edit source]

  • Taskbar previews have been updated to reflect the new visual design.
  • The Task View and Alt+Tab background now has an acrylic blur effect.
  • An entertainment widget has been added which displays movie titles that are available in the Microsoft Store. Clicking on a movie directs the user to the Microsoft Store.

Bugfixes[edit | edit source]

  • The stack overflow crash with File Explorer in Safe mode has been fixed.
