New features and changes[edit | edit source]

Shell[edit | edit source]

The ability to show the expanded Widgets entry point when the taskbar is left-aligned has been implemented. This feature is disabled by default, but can be toggled on manually by enabling the 43320599 velocity ID.

Settings[edit | edit source]

  • A new "Default graphics settings" option has been added under System > Display > Graphics to allow users to select a discrete graphics adapter as the default high performance GPU. This option is only available on devices with two or more discrete graphics adapters and without integrated graphics.
  • The ability to open System > Display > Advanced display via the ms-settings:advanceddisplay URI command has been implemented.
  • The performance of search within the Settings app has been improved.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

General[edit | edit source]

  • The system may take longer than expected to upgrade to this build in certain cases.
  • The screen may appear black for several minutes when upgrading to this build.
  • There is a handle leak in Task Manager. To prevent this from occurring, disable the velocity ID 35365030.

File Explorer[edit | edit source]

  • The access keys in the XAML context menu may appear inconsistently if no button is pressed. Pressing a button will cause them to reappear.
  • Clicking on the Share command may bring up the Windows share sheet (non-OneDrive) when the file recommendations feature is enabled.

Shell[edit | edit source]

  • Right-clicking a file or folder while pressing ⇧ Shift may not open the legacy context menu in certain cases.
  • Users may see the daily rotating search highlight for some time before getting the new Bing button back to the search box on the taskbar.

Settings[edit | edit source]

  • When adding a language via the Language & Region page, the installation progress may become hidden, and users may not see install completion for enhanced speech recognition.
  • The Language & Region page may not offer the necessary speech recognition language support for live captions for up to an hour after first login.

Live captions[edit | edit source]

  • The enhanced speech recognition support may not be installed correctly through the Language & Region page in the Settings app on ARM64 devices.
  • Captioning performance may be degraded in non-English languages and missing out-of-language filtering in non-English (United States) languages.

Safe mode[edit | edit source]

  • Quick Settings and date/time clock on the taskbar may be missing due to the Capability Access Manager Service service not running.
  • Clicking Bluetooth & devices and Personalization pages may crash the Settings app due to an overrun of a stack-based buffer 0xc0000409.

Updates[edit | edit source]

A servicing test update (KB5026292) was released for AMD64 and ARM64 devices on the Canary Channel four days after this build release. Installing the update changes the operating system buildtag to 25336.1010.rs_prerelease_flt.230403-1253.
