  • The notification when microphone access has been restricted in user's privacy settings when opening Sound page has been removed.
  • The touch indicator option in Mouse pointer and touch section under Accessibility page will now be turned off by default.
    • As part of this change, a link to the aforementioned page has been added in Touch section under Bluetooth & Devices page in order to make the press and hold visual always displayed regardless of the setting state.

Shell[edit | edit source]

  • The context menu will be aligned with the search box when opening Start and immediate pressing ⇧ Shift+F10 or ≣ Menu key.
  • The battery icon in the taskbar will now align with the user-defined critical and low-battery level notification, rather than using the default values to show a warning.

Input[edit | edit source]

Bugfixes[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed an issue leading to an explorer.exe crash in recent Nickel builds if there were issues loading the battery icon in the taskbar.

  • Fixed issues where Caps Lock, Num Lock, Scroll Lock, and other indicator lights on the keyboard would not work properly.

  • Fixed an issue that was causing the kaomoji list in ⊞ Win+. to be blank when accessed while using Chinese IMEs.
  • Fixed an issue with the emoji panel search results that could lead to a single .GIF being displayed repeatedly with certain queries.
  • Mitigated an issue resulting in IMEs not working with certain games.
  • Addressed an issue where the options under Settings > Personalization > Typing to change the settings "Show text suggestions & add a spacebar after I choose a text suggestions" for the touch keyboard might unexpectedly not display.
  • The voice typing ⊞ Win+H will resume listening more reliability if a long pause has been made while using it.
  • Fixed some inconsistencies between actual listening status and the microphone visual in voice typing.
  • Fixed issues that was causing text to be unexpectedly duplicated if the caret is moved while using voice typing.
  • Fixed issues where the brightness and volume sliders in Quick Settings would randomly become invisible.

  • Fixed a scaling issue that was causing the update prompt dialog (and other dialogs of that style) to get cut off and not draw correctly after the DPI changed.
  • Mitigated an issue related to TCP/IP which could result in bug checks when waking a device.
  • Fixed an issue where high priority notifications (such as an alarm) would sometimes unexpectedly dismiss without engaging with it, leading to it randomly reappearing the next time a normal priority notification came in.
