Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • Support for viewing and editing metadata in PNG files has been implemented.
  • The Windows Maps and Movies and TV apps will not be installed by default after doing a clean install, although they will not be removed when upgrading from earlier builds.

Bugfixes[edit | edit source]

Fixed an issue that was causing File Explorer to crash in Windows Sandbox when using a non-English display language.
