Windows 95 build 73g is a Milestone 5 build of Windows 95. This build is the second Chicago Preliminary Development Kit (PDK2) release. Unlike its predecessor, build 73f, this build was distributed to external testers and developers.

Differences from build 73f[edit | edit source]

Build 73f is an earlier recompile of build 73g. Thus, this build shares most of the new features from build 73f, with some exceptions:

  • The desktop wallpaper is no longer set to tiled by default.
  • SUWIN.EXE has some string changes (to change valid beta site ID/password).
  • The included WinBug utility is for external testers instead of internal testers, and is more resemblant of that from build 58s instead of build 73f.

Start button and menu[edit | edit source]

Although this build still has three separate Start buttons and menus like build 58s, it already contains the necessary resources to enable a single unified Start menu (but not the single button), similar to that in build 81. A tutorial on how to remove the two extra buttons and display only the unified menu is available on BetaArchive.[1]
