  • The Share flyout will only show apps under "Share using" that are tied to the account users are signed into Windows with.
  • Microsoft Teams (Work or School) contacts will show in the Share flyout if users signed in with a Microsoft Entra ID.

Settings[edit | edit source]

The Phone Link subpage under the Bluetooth & devices has been renamed to Mobile devices along with a new "Allow this PC to access your mobile devices" toggle switch, where clicking on it will open a placeholder dialog.
