New security, high DPI settings in new Windows build

The new Microsoft Windows test build, titled 19H1, will have new features for users to explore. Let’s take a brief look at what it brings to the table.

Starting off, we have the Windows Defender Application Guard for Microsoft Edge. With the new changes, it will be possible to manage access to your cameras and microphones while browsing, allowing you to retain full control over what’s being transmitted to the web.

Microsoft has also made an effort to reduce the number of times users get the “fix blurry apps” alert. From now on, the OS will attempt to fix these automatically for you.

Whenever you’re using an app in full-screen mode, you will be able to opt out of Focus Assist through a new setting introduced by Microsoft. Formerly, Focus Assist was known as Quiet Hours.

Are you a fan of emojis? Then you’ll be delighted to know that Microsoft has prepared a new set of emojis in the new 19H1 build. Although it’s merely a test build right now, the full version is expected to start rolling out somewhere around April 2019.

Up until recently, there was a problem with Windows Subsystem for Linux not working with the 19H1 build. The issue has since been resolved by Microsoft. In a blog post published by the company, it has also hinted that various changes with regards to the snipping tool are on the horizon.

The full list of changes and new features is available on the official Microsoft blog.
