Windows 8 build 7788 is a build of Windows 8. A screenshot was posted to the BetaWiki Discord server on 5 May 2020, but the image was deleted soon afterwards. This build is from the shell development lab and is therefore more similar to 7850 than the likely contemporaneous build 7791.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • This is possibly the earliest known build to contain most features hidden by Redpill such as the Modern Task Manager, the Modern Reader, and Ribbon tabs on Windows Explorer.
  • Introduced the Microsoft Confidential watermark.
  • Reintroduced centered title bars, which were last used in Windows Longhorn build 4005.
  • Introduced the new (ultimately scrapped) Disk Cleanup tool.
  • Introduced the Start screen.
  • Changed the desktop wallpaper to a blue-green gradient, which would be used up to build 7899.
  • Title bar buttons are now larger than ones in Windows 7 and earlier builds of Windows 8

Removed features[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike build 7746, the "Send Feedback" shortcut is missing.
