Windows 8 build 7788 is a build of Windows 8. A screenshot of this build 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 7814 than its contemporaneous fbl_core1_hyp_dev compile and build 7791.

New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • This is one of the earliest known builds to contain most features hidden by Redpill such as the Modern Task Manager and the Modern Reader.
  • Introduced the Microsoft Confidential watermark on the desktop.
  • Introduced the new (ultimately scrapped) Disk Cleanup tool.
  • Internet Explorer 9 now uses its final icon.
  • Start screen is more functional than the previous build.
  • Changed the desktop wallpaper to only include phrase "shhh... let's not leak our hard work" due to the introduction of Microsoft Confidental watermark, which would be used up to Windows Server 2012 build 7904.
  • Introduced the user tile on the taskbar.
