New features and changes[edit | edit source]

Narrator[edit | edit source]

Several improvements to Narrator have been made for web browsing with Microsoft Edge.

  • The response time of Narrator's scan mode has been reduced, thus improved the filling experience in form fields, as well as the input experience when pressing Ctrl+L to jump to the address bar.
  • Narrator will read the character that the cursor position is at after a character has been deleted.
  • More contextual information will be provided when navigating around the web.
  • A more consistent navigation experience with Narrator has been provided, including improvements in heading navigation, a more consistent scan mode navigation experience where scan mode is less likely to loop between items, and a more consistent hyperlink reading experience when navigating forwards and backwards.

Start menu[edit | edit source]

  • The ability to customize the Start menu layout with either more pinned items or recommendations (by increasing the size of each area of the Start menu) has been added.

Shell[edit | edit source]

  • The ability to display the clock and date on all connected monitors' taskbars has been added.
  • The ability to show up to three high priority notifications as stacked and shown at the same time alongside the normal priority notification has been added.
  • Repeatedly pressing ⊞ Win plus the number corresponding to an app icon's position in the taskbar will cycle through the app's windows instead of stopping at the last window.
  • Narrator will show information about the desktops when Narrator focus is set to the Task View button and the Desktops flyout appears.
  • The Chinese Simplified IME candidates has been updated to be center aligned with the candidate window height has been customized.

Settings[edit | edit source]

  • The Spotlight collection feature, which first introduced in Windows 10 build 20231.1000, has been added under Background page.
    • This feature is only available to a subset of users, but can be enabled by running the following command with ViveTool from an elevated Command Prompt window: vivetool addconfig 26008405 2
  • The new Advanced sharing settings subpage under Advanced network settings page, initially introduced in build 22494, has been rolled out to the public.
    • As a result, some of the entry points for network and devices settings in Control Panel have been redirected to the corresponding pages in the Settings app.
  • Updates to the device specific pages under Printers & Scanners page, initially introduced in build 22494, have been rolled out to the public.
  • A new option to the Installed Apps page has been added to sort the list from Name (Z to A), and accordingly, the previous Alphabetically option has been renamed to Name (A to Z).
  • A confirmation dialog has been added if the Uninstall button is clicked when using the Installed Apps page in grid view.
  • A new "Set default" option has been added to the browser's subpage under Default apps page for setting the browser as default.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • The OS will remember if Bluetooth or Wi-Fi is turned on while in airplane mode.
  • Support for rebooting Windows Sandbox inside of its virtualized environment has been added.

Bugfixes[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed a bug where several system icons in the taskbar would get larger than normal if DPI scaling level is set to 125%.
  • Fixed an explorer.exe crash related to updating badges in the taskbar in recent Nickel builds.
  • Fixed a bug leading handwriting not working when the language is set to Chinese.
  • Mitigated an issue related to the mouse that was causing some Insiders to experience a bugcheck during hibernation sometimes in recent Nickel builds (making it appear as if the computer had rebooted).
  • Fixed touch keyboard invocation in PowerShell.
  • Fixed a bug where the displayed thumbnails and content area in Task View would unexpectedly shrinking when hovering the mouse back and forth between different desktops.
  • Fixed a bug that was causing CompactOverlay (Picture-in-Picture mode) not working.
  • Fixed a race condition that was causing explorer.exe to crash sometimes when closing a snap group of three or more windows in Task View.
  • Removed the unexpected tilt animation when clicking down on a corner of the New Desktop button.
  • A tweak has been made to address an underlying issue that was causing the context menu to animation down to the mouse instead of away from the mouse when right-clicking a desktop in Task View.
  • Fixed a high hitting DWM crash in recent Nickel builds.
  • Fixed some overlapping text for certain languages on the Installed Apps page in the Settings app.
  • The ms-settings:installed-apps URI has been changed to ms-settings:appsfeatures to address scenarios where existing links expect the latter to lead to the list of installed apps, for example, when selecting the App Settings option after right-clicking a UWP app in Start.
  • Fixed issues where some devices would fail to install new builds or other updates with error codes 0x80070002, 0x8007001f, and 0xc1900101-0x4001c.
  • Some work has been made to help address an issue leading to the Wi-Fi connection getting lost after resuming from sleep.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

  • When starting Windows in Safe mode, the desktop may stuck in a crash loop due to an unhandled exception 0xc000027b in explorer.exe.
  • Clicking Bluetooth & devices and Personalization pages may crash the Settings app in Safe mode due to an overrun of a stack-based buffer.
