Microsoft China Official Store - Windows

Brightness setting

In older versions of Windows, the device had two different brightness settings in battery mode and charging mode. However, it was integrated into a common setting in the Windows 10 May 2019 update. This will not change the brightness after the charger is unplugged from the wall.

Resource Manager:

● icon

Based on user feedback, Microsoft updated the Explorer icon to make it more relevant to Light themes. The current resource manager icon is like this

● Download file sort

Under normal circumstances, when a user downloads a file, the file name is not modified before being downloaded. Therefore, this makes these download files always easy to forget (for example, cake_134_small_red.jpg), which makes sorting by name less desirable and it is difficult to find the file you are looking for. So Microsoft updated the default sorting method to time, and the most recently downloaded file will be displayed at the top of the list.


Task Manager default tab page

Now users can set the tabs that appear on the home page in Task Manager. Currently, when you launch Task Manager, it opens the Processes tab. In the May 2019 update, you can set the preferred tab and when you launch the Task Manager again, it will jump directly to the preferred tab.

RAW image extension

Although the Explorer and Microsoft Photos applications in the Windows 10 system currently have access to thumbnails and partial information in RAW format, some of the attributes of the format are not supported.

Microsoft released "Raw Image Extension" in the Windows store, which adds native viewing support for RAW images. Write on the software product page: "By installing this package, users can view thumbnails and metadata of RAW file formats in Windows File Explorer, or preview them in the Photos app." The company said this extension can Decode and extract EXIF ​​metadata in RAW file format.

Reset PC settings

In the Windows 10 Settings app, the user is allowed to reset the system with/without using a personal profile. Microsoft is enabling the interface for the Reset this PC to complete the reset process with fewer clicks.

Action Center

The Action Center finally got the much-anticipated brightness slider instead of the button. You can now customize the brightness directly from the Action Center by adjusting the slider. You can now also customize quick actions from the Operations Center itself. As shown in the screenshot below, you must right-click on any action you want to delete or swap it with another action. You don't need to visit the Settings page to customize the Action Center.

Improvements in high DPI displays

Windows 10 build 18277 sets the automatic repair of fuzzy applications to the default behavior, so whenever you launch an application that might not render properly on a high DPI display, the operating system should launch and fix it for you.

For the past few years, Microsoft has been working to improve the high DPI features of Win32 (desktop) applications on Windows. This feature has been implemented step by step in Windows 10. In the upcoming 19H1 update, it will be enabled by default for everyone.

Of course, this doesn't mean that Windows 10 will fix all the vague applications correctly, and the tests show that there is still room for improvement. However, in some cases, people themselves need to update their applications for high DPI displays, while the new DPI mode in Windows 10 only makes the application available, but it is difficult to render perfectly.

Focus Assist

"Focus Assist" can disable message notifications when a user watches a movie or reads something. In fact, this experience is not limited to viewing. This setting can be turned on whenever you run something in full screen mode (such as reading a document, presentation, etc.). Interested friends can access this feature by going to Settings -> System -> Focus Assistant.

Time zone

It is a lot of trouble for people to always refuse self-adjustment and display the wrong time in Windows. Microsoft finally solved this problem, now there is a button to manually put the PC with timeserverSynchronize.
