New features and changes[edit | edit source]
- The right-hand charms bar can be brought out again 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).
- The system crash screen's text has changed, with the collecting error info text being similar to the Consumer Preview.
