Windows 8 build 8045 is a build of Windows 8. This build was leaked to BetaArchive on 26 January 2020. It includes a new desktop background and the system crash screen has been changed to resemble the RTM, although it is black instead of blue. The circle of spinning dots on the boot screen has shrunk in size in this build. The right-hand Charms bar is now accessible again without the need for a touchscreen by default via pressing Win+Shift+C.
Features[edit | edit source]
- A sad emoticon
:(was added to the system crash screen.
- In this build, Refresh your PC is called Rejuvenate your PC.
- The loading animation has become larger and whiter in some occasions.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
Start screen[edit | edit source]
The Start screen appears to hide all tiles on boot, until you start interacting with them.
Lock screen[edit | edit source]
On boot, if the Start button has been removed, the lock screen may not display correctly (such as displaying nothing but the lock screen art, or not showing the date).
Microsoft Confidential in winver[edit | edit source]
On this build's
winver dialog box, the text of the disclaimer is colored black instead of the red that is seen in earlier and later builds.
