New features and changes[edit | edit source]

  • Setup has received major updates for the run-up to the official Beta 1. It includes a blue Watercolor design instead of the Windows ME design from build 2250 to build 2267.
  • Windows Media Player has been updated to version 7, as with Windows ME.
  • Internet Explorer is now updated to a beta version of Internet Explorer 6. However, the version branding still labels Internet Explorer 5.6.
  • Windows Movie Maker from Windows ME is also included in this build.
  • The "About Program" banners have been slightly updated to have the Windows logo be more fluent in appearance. The login screensaver also shows the SKU of the build.
  • The start button has also been updated, resembling the old Windows 2000 design instead of the one from build 2257 and build 2267.
  • This build is the first to have the new Help and Support center, which would eventually remain in the RTM albeit redesigned. Alongside, compatibility mode debuts in this build; but instead of being a setting in the properties of an application, it is a launcher from Help and Support.
  • Category View for Control Panel has been revamped and Control Panel includes a new Text to Speech applet.
  • The OOBE now includes a mouse tutorial for new users.
  • This is the first build to include the "Windows Whistler" animation at the start of the OOBE.
  • The "Personal Start Menu" name has been changed to "Simple Start Menu".
  • The logged-in user's name is shown on the Start menu. The shutdown and logoff buttons are fixed when the theme is set to Professional.
