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.
  • Windows Mail is no longer able to be opened, but the files for it are still present.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Stability issues can be encountered while moving desktop gadgets.
  • 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".
  • The text under "Find out what's new in Windows" is missing, which results in displaying placeholder text.
