New features and changes[edit | edit source]

Settings[edit | edit source]

    • This page is only available to a subset of users via the Online Service Experience Pack available in Windows Update.
  • The "Apps & Features" page has been split into two pages, "Installed apps" and "Advanced app settings".
  • The ability to view installed apps in three layouts (list, tiles and grid) has been added under Installed apps page.

File Explorer[edit | edit source]

  • The "Pin to Quick Access" item is now a top-level button when right clicking any folders and drives.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • Added support for Discovery of Designated Resolvers, a mechanism for Windows to use DNS records to discover a resolver's encrypted DNS configuration and protocols known only by its IP address.[1]
  • Renamed the Connect app to Wireless Display.

Bugfixes[edit | edit source]

  • Windows Sandbox now works properly on ARM64 PCs.
  • Addressed an issue where explorer.exe would crash occasionally when using the Desktops flyout context menu or dismissing the Desktops flyout.
  • Addressed an issue that was causing flickering in the app window when resizing certain apps in recent Nickel builds.
  • Addressed an issue where the media controls is sometimes not showing up in Quick Settings when music was playing recently.
  • The Get Started app will no longer crash if the Tips app has been uninstalled.
  • Mitigated an underlying issue that was causing the Processes tab in Task Manager to be blank occasionally.
    • This is also believed to be the same root cause causing UAC to open very slowly recently.
  • Addressed an issue causing some devices to bugcheck with SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCPTION when updating on previous builds.
  • Addressed an issue where Xbox Game Pass games are failing to install with error 0x00000001.
  • Addressed an issue where get-winevent in PowerShell was failing with an error InvalidOperationException.
  • Made an underlying change to help fix an issue causing some users to see an unexpected "bad image" error message dialog on boot.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

  • In the Settings app, the "Recovery" and "For developers" links appear under the main Windows Update page instead of the Privacy & security page.
    • Users need to click on the "Windows Update" link in order to reach the settings for Windows Update.
  • On some devices, the screen and sleep timeouts may be reduced on purpose as a "potential impact" to energy consumption related to shorted timeouts.
  • In Safe mode, clicking Bluetooth & devices and Personalization pages may crash the Settings app due to an overrun of a stack-based buffer 0xc0000409.
