Windows 7 build 6801 is a Milestone 3 build of Windows 7. This build was leaked on 29 October 2008 by WiNBETA.[1] This build is not too different from 6780, except for some bug fixes. Windows Mail cannot run anymore, although its .exe file is still present.

New features[edit | edit source]

  • You can now select multiple wallpapers and choose to change to each one of them every selected amount of minutes.
  • Taskbar properties has more options, such as "small icons".
  • The taskbar has new icons.
  • Internet Explorer 8 has received updates.
  • Welcome Center has been renamed to Getting Started.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Moving gadgets is generally glitchy, such as clipping them.
  • Much like in build 6780, it is not possible to upgrade to this build due an error in which "One or more disk volumes present were formatted in an incompatible way by a newer version of Windows".
