|Build of Windows 8|
|Timebomb||2011-02-05 (+95 days)|
Windows 8 build 7875 is an interim build of Windows 8. Eight screenshots of this build were leaked in a folder included with the leak of build 7746 on 3 May 2020 and the build itself was eventually leaked on the BetaWiki Discord server on 31 December 2020.
This build already showcases significant evolution from 7850. File search has been implemented along with application search, and the kernel version has been changed to 6.2. This build also changes the first letter of search suggestions to blue.
Microsoft Confidential has been added into winver banner, which replaced the original Windows 7 one, and desktop watermark as a title.
This build also has the first iteration of the new login screen, which looks the same as Windows 7 but with the Windows 7 logo removed. Enabling Redpill changes the design of user selection to the larger one and uses the wallpaper from logged in user as a background.

Setup[edit | edit source]
Setup is mostly similar to the previous leaked build of Windows 8 albeit with the watermark showing on the bottom-right corner. It also still contains the "Setup is" issue. However, once heading onto the OOBE, the Windows 7 logo has been replaced with Microsoft Confidential and as with every other application, the title font has been changed.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
Arial[edit | edit source]
This build uses the Arial font for the title bar and watermark because of an incorrect value relating to the Segoe UI Semilight font name in the
aerolite.msstyles files, which causes it to fall back to the Arial font. In build 7850, the value in the aforementioned files is Segoe UI Semi Light, however in this build, the font is named Segoe UI Semilight.
Drivers[edit | edit source]
Upon using drivers released somewhat after the compilation of this build, a BSOD will appear after installing the drivers. The error code for this blue screen is 0x000000FC.
