Start Menu Improvements
Moving on to the Start menu, files without rich thumbnail previews will no longer show a blank preview area. This is part of the work for rich thumbnail previews (tooltips) for cloud files on Start that began rolling out with Build 23511.
Building off the Cast improvements introduced with Build 23516, the Cast flyout in Quick Settings has received additional support. This will assist you in troubleshooting device discovery and other casting issues.
Significant improvements have been made to the Narrator. The default verbosity level has been changed from 2 to 3, which will now announce “Immediate Context Name and Type”. This will allow users to better understand the focused control. Additionally, Narrator users are unblocked for typing Traditional Chinese characters in Windows with the addition of a Traditional Chinese dictionary for detailed reading.
Fixes and Improvements
Several bugs have been fixed, including an issue that was making the System label in Start’s all apps list the wrong color in high contrast themes. Taskbar loading issues for some Insiders when logging into their PC after installing the previous build have also been addressed.
