Changes[edit | edit source]

Setup[edit | edit source]

  • The fade animation while switching between pages has been removed.
  • Time and Currency formats can now be set during the OOBE.

Login screen[edit | edit source]

  • The size of the Start orb during the boot to the login screen has been increased.
  • The Windows Vista logo with the SKU has been added to the bottom of the login screen.
  • New icons are used on the login screen and Windows Security (Ctrl+Alt+Del).
  • The startup sound is included in authui.dll to be played during orb animation, however, it does not play in this build.

User interface[edit | edit source]

  • Windows Basic and Aero elements (buttons, progress bars, etc.) have been updated to resemble that of the RTM.
  • The Classic theme has been updated slightly. The start button now uses the logo seen in the RTM, albeit with a white background.
  • Start menu right-pane links have increased padding, which results in the menu being slightly taller by default.
  • The user icon frame in Start has been updated to that used on the login screen.
  • The shortcut indicator has been made smaller.
  • "Show Desktop" received a new icon.
  • The Flip3D shortcut has been re-added to Quick Launch.
  • Due to this build not being publicly distributed, the "Get Started" shortcut introduced in build 5384 has been removed.

Windows Explorer[edit | edit source]

  • The "See other options" drop-down menu has been removed from the search box (this change also applies to the start menu).
  • The hit-box for opening the navigation pane's folder drawer has significantly increased.
  • Several UI graphics have been updated.
  • The Links toolbar can no longer be enabled.

Applications[edit | edit source]

Control Panel[edit | edit source]

  • Windows Firewall received a new applet, which lets users quickly view its status. The previous applet is still used for changing settings.
  • "Programs" has been redesigned and renamed to "Programs and Features".
  • The Personalization applet and its subsections received new icons.
  • A warning was added to the Color and Appearance subsection that enabling transparency might affect the computer's performance.
  • Speech Recognition has been redesigned.
  • Indexing Options received a new icon.
  • Help and Support links have been added to several applets.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Setup[edit | edit source]

  • Since this build is unstaged, setup likes to hang at the installing features and the completing installation stages of setup.
  • Backgrounds won't be displayed in the OOBE.

Shutdown[edit | edit source]

When shutting down, the sound will only play for a quarter of a second. This bug persists until build 5472.
