In fact, many of the new features in Build 18305 released today, Microsoft has had notices in the past few days. One of the most notable changes is the Windows Sandbox, which runs untrusted applications in a virtual environment. There is also a brand newOfficeApplication is the successor to My Office.
The Windows 10 Build 18035 update log is as follows:
Simplify the start layout
As shown in the screenshot below, the layout of the start menu has been further simplified, with a more stylish single-column design and a reduction in the number of top-level tiles.
Based on user feedback, Microsoft introduced a simplified default start layout for new devices, new user accounts, and clean installation devices. The new layout is simplified to a single-column design and reduces the number of first-level tiles. For IT administrators this doesn't need to worry about business andeducationCustomers will also see simplified layouts tailored to these scenarios.
In conjunction with previous adjustments: including uninstalling other inbox apps, and making it easier to unpin fixed files or tile groups, the goal of simplifying the layout is to enhance the consumer experience.
Note: When you upgrade to this version, your Start menu does not automatically switch to the new layout, because Microsoft wants everything to be exactly the same as you did before the update.
Introducing the Windows Sandbox
Windows Sandbox is a new lightweight desktop environment that is tailored to run applications securely.
Have you ever downloaded an executable file, but are hesitant about running it? Have you ever had to install Windows system completely purely, but don't want to set it up?virtual machineCase?
This is often the case at least within Microsoft, so MicrosoftDevelopmentWindows Sandbox, a completely self-contained desktop environment where you can run untrusted software without worrying about lasting effects on your device.
Any software installed in the Windows Sandbox is only left in the sandbox and does not affect your host. When you close the Windows Sandbox, all software that contains all of its files and status is permanently deleted.
The Windows Sandbox has the following properties:
● Native integration to Windows
Windows 10 Professional and Enterprise Edition natively include all the files for this feature, no need to download a VHD.
Every time the Windows Sandbox runs, it's as clean as a new Windows installation.
● One time
There are no pre-installed content on the device. Everything will be dropped after closing the app
Kernel isolation using hardware-based virtualization, relying on a Microsoft Hypervisor to run a separate kernel, isolating the Windows Sandbox from the host
Use integrated kernel scheduler, intelligent memory management and virtual GPU
If you want to install the Windows Sandbox, go to Settings > Applications > Applications & Features > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off, and then select Enable Windows Sandbox. To launch the Windows Sandbox, open the Start menu, type in the Windows Sandbox, and select it.
The Windows Sandbox follows the host diagnostic data settings. All other privacy settings are set to their default values. For more information, you can visit the Windows Sandbox in Windows Kernel Internals.
● When installing the Windows Sandbox for the first time, each service event runs an installation process and triggers CPU and disk activity. The whole process takes about 1 minute.
● It takes some time to open the Start menu in the Windows Sandbox, and some Start menu applications will not work.
● The time zone between the Windows Sandbox and the host is out of sync.
● The Windows Sandbox does not support an installer that requires a reboot.
● The Windows Store does not support the Microsoft Store.
● Windows Sandbox does not support high dpi display.
● Windows Sandbox does not fully support multi-monitor configuration.
Windows Security app improvements
New Protection History experience
Based on user feedback, Microsoft redesigned the Protection History experience in Windows Security applications. The new Protection History will still display Windows Defender Antivirus detection results, but now provides more details to enhance consumer understanding of threats and suspicious activity.
We also added controlled folder access blocks to the history, as well as combined attack surface reduction rules (Attack)SurfaceReduction Rules) Any block generated. If you use the Windows Defender offline scanning tool, any tests it does now will now also appear in your history. In addition, you will see any pending suggestions in the history list (red or yellow status throughout the application).
Introducing Tamper Protection
Tamper Protection is a new setting for Windows Defender Antivirus and is now available in Windows Security applications. When enabled, it provides additional protection for changes to critical security features, including restrictions that are not made directly through the Windows security application. Users can find this setting under Windows Security > Virus and Threat Protection > Virus and Threat Protection settings.
Symbol and Kaomoji now support hotkeys
Can't remember the code for the Alt key when trying to enter the em dash? Want to use "Flip Table" on social media, but don't remember the order of the characters? Press WIN+ (period) or WIN+ (semicolon). In addition to the emoji, the selector that appears now includes the symbol and kaomoji.
More symbolic elements are included here, including punctuation, currency, geometry, math, Latin and partial language symbols. In addition, the most frequently used symbols are displayed on the tabs for the next time the user uses them.
Currently only Emoji supports input search.
Clipboard history with a new interface
Have you tried using clipboard history? If enabled, allows users to save multiple clipboard contents for later use. This feature was introduced in RS5, and after collecting a large amount of user feedback, the user interface was extensively adjusted in this version.
Initially selected to display larger entries, so there is plenty of room to display the image preview, but when we look at the data, we find that 90% of the items in the clipboard history are text. Based on this and your feedback, we now optimize the design of the text fragments - reducing the height of each item so that you can access more items without scrolling the view.
No password Microsoft account login to Windows system
Microsoft is actively promoting the elimination of passwords and other ways to better protect your account security. In this release, Microsoft announced support for setting up and logging into Windows systems via mobile numbers without the hassle of creating and processing passwords.
After the Microsoft account is bound to the user's mobile phone, you only need to input the SMS verification SMS received by the mobile phone during the login process, then you can log in. In addition, users can log in to the Windows system through Windows Hello's fingerprint recognition, face recognition and other means.
Create a passwordless mobile number account
If you still can't create a password-free mobile number account, you can create one in Microsoft mobile apps like Word. Users simply need to open Word and enter your mobile number in the "Login or Free Registration" link to complete the registration.
Add a passwordless mobile phone number account to the Windows system
After creating a passwordless mobile account, users can log in to the Windows system by following the steps below.
1. Add your account to Windows by setting > Accounts > Home & Other Users > Add others to this PC.
2. Lock your device and select your phone number account from the Windows login screen.
3. Since your account does not have a password, select "Login Options", click on the other "PIN" tile, and click "Sign In".
4. Browse the web login and Windows Hello settings (this is how you log in to your account during subsequent logins)
5. You can now log in to Windows with an account without a password.
Note: This experience is currently limited to the Windows Insider Home Edition and will be extended to other more versions in the future.
Simplify the Windows Hello reset experience
We know that remembering PIN can be cumbersome, so we want to provide an improved Windows Hello PIN reset experience for our Microsoft account users. Its operating experience is close to the web page. In today's version, when you log in to Windows with a PIN, then click the "Forgot my PIN" link.
Note: This experience is currently limited to the Windows Insider Home Edition and will be extended to other more versions in the future.
Make sure your device is running smoothly with recommended troubleshooting
Microsoft can automatically fix some serious problems on Windows devices to ensure it runs smoothly. For example, we may automatically restore the default settings for critical services, adjust feature settings to match your hardware configuration, or make other specific changes required for Windows to function properly. Critical troubleshooting is automatically enabled and cannot be turned off.
We also recommend troubleshooting other issues that are not important for normal Windows operation, but may affect your experience. For example, we might suggest turning off settings that sometimes cause an app or feature to crash unexpectedly until an update is available. . We'll let you know when we can help, and you can choose to run the troubleshooter or ignore it. You can also change the recommended troubleshooting method on your device by opening Start > Settings > Privacy > Diagnostics & Feedback.
Automatic Restart and Sign On (ARSO) for the enterprise
Are you tired of seeing these flashing screens after each update?
The ARSO feature automatically logs in to the user after the update to complete the setup and locks the PC when it is finished. This is part of the Seamless Update Story for Windows project, which aims to reduce customer pain points for updates, including post-login setup time and content that cannot be received from where it left off.
This feature will be enabled on Cloud Domain Joined devices that meet certain security requirements:
● BitLocker is enabled and not suspended during the upgrade
● TPM 2.0
To check if your device is getting ARSO, go to Settings > Accounts > Login Options > Privacy. If the toggle is "on" and not grayed out, the device meets ARSO security requirements and is enabled by default. If the switch is grayed out and enabled, your IT administrator has explicitly enabled ARSO for you, regardless of whether your device meets security requirements.
If the switch is grayed out and disabled, you are unable to meet the minimum security requirements for Enterprise ARSO, or your IT administrator has explicitly disabled ARSO, regardless of whether your device meets security requirements.
Set the default task manager tab
Do you have a preference for the Tag of the Task Manager? In the new version, users can set default labels according to their needs. Once you open the Task Manager, you can jump directly to your preferred page.
If you want to set a preference page, you can set the default label via Options >.
Upgrade settings app home page
In this release, we introduced a new way to help users complete Windows setup and quickly access some of the most common settings. Inspired by the Microsoft account home page, the Settings home page now has a top bar at the top that allows you to quickly perform logins and manage Microsoft accounts, improving your Windows and Microsoft experience. It also makes it easy to browse system status, such as whether updates are available.
Friendly date in the resource manager
In Build 18272, some of the Insider members may have noticed some minor changes in the resource manager. As we have promised in detail, the default ordering of download folders is the first part. The second part is that in this version, we tried to enable the new default time format in Explorer. Microsoft calls it a friendly date, which you can see in the picture below.
Why do you want to make a change? The new format simplifies the modification of the date column and provides consistency with the entire operating system, applications, and other views seen on the web.
As the eye-catching Insider member discovered, we started to re-regress the shadow element in Build 17711. Shadows is an important component of Fluent Design's long-term vision. After resolving the many bugs that users have feedback after the first launch, Microsoft brought it back.
Re-release a new Japanese IME
The latest version of the IME enhances key customization options and improved candidate window reliability (solving issues that cannot be displayed). We know about compatibility issues with certain game apps, and the team is researching them - we will notify you when we resolve this issue.
Introducing an Office app for Windows 10
This month, Windows Insider members will take advantage of the new Office app. This streamlined operating experience is designed to help users get the most out of Office and get back to work quickly. The app is a great starting point for Office, making it easy to find all your files in one place or easily access any available Office solution.
If the Office document is installed on the user's computer, the local Office rich client will be automatically opened, and if it is not, it will be sent to the Web version of Office. By integrating other line-of-business applications that use Azure Active Directory into the experience and applying the company brand to the application, IT staff will also appreciate the power of custom applications.
For more information on Office applications, see the Microsoft 365 blog post.
Do more with Cortana and Microsoft To-Do
Cortana helps you save time and keep your tasks organized by adding your reminders and tasks to your Microsoft To-Do. This feature is currently in preview so users can easily grasp the most important things with voice, PC and mobile.
Simplify your mission
Task lists and reminders from Microsoft To-Do, Cortana and Outlook are now integrated into your Microsoft To-Do app. Users can do it on Android,iPhoneUse Microsoft To-Do on a cross-device, or use Cortana on a Windows 10 PC. You can also access it online. It will sync automatically, so you will never miss a task.
For example, when you ask Cortana to add milk to your shopping list, it will appear in one of your Microsoft to-do lists. Or you ask Cortana to remind you to call your friend and see the reminder in the list of Microsoft To-Do programs. Through this integration, we are working hard to seamlessly synchronize to-do lists in tasks in Microsoft To-Do, Cortana, and Outlook.
And to synchronize, Windows 10 PC must be built in 18267 and above, currently only available in Australia, India, the United States and the United Kingdom.
