New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • The right-hand charms can again be brought out by bringing the mouse to the top-right or bottom-right of the screen (present but is only accessible using a touchscreen by default in builds 8008 to 8032 or by pressing ⊞ Win+⇧ Shift+C in builds 8045 to 8155).
  • This build includes a new default user account picture (similar to the Bill Gates mugshot).
  • Some new accent colors.

  • Like in build 8155, the Install now text on the autorun is in the System font.
