New features and changes[edit | edit source]

Windows Setup[edit | edit source]

When starting setup, the prompt asking the user to press F5 to launch Automated System Recovery has been removed.

Out-of-box experience[edit | edit source]

A new step that checks internet connectivity has been added. It is performed before the user is asked if the computer connects directly to the internet or through a local-area or home network.

User interface[edit | edit source]

Continuing on with the evolution of Luna with build 2430, most aspects of the user interface were updated to include a more finalized design. As such, the drop shadow effect used on the window title text is now less noticeable compared to the previously mentioned build, with a shadow also being added onto the start button.

The scroll bars have been updated to their final design. This design features 4 lines instead of 5, with the colors of the bar itself being updated to a lighter blue.

The taskbar is now locked by default in order to prevent confusion among new users, with Quick Launch now also being disabled along with it.

Control Panel[edit | edit source]

The background gradient used for the Control Panel category view was replaced with a solid dark blue color. Network Connections and User Accounts have also received new icons.

Windows Explorer[edit | edit source]

The icons used for the Standard Buttons toolbar have been shrunk and updated to resemble the final design. These icons would be later refined in later builds.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

The Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) is no longer present in the Personal SKU.
