Microsoft launches new Windows 10 example with acrylic login screen

Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 preview for PCs with acrylic paint in the login screen. This build is from the 19H1 branch, which, as the name implies, will arrive in the first half of next year. Microsoft is in the process of completing the RS5 office, which represents the Windows 10 update that the company plans to issue in October.

Windows 10 is being developed as a service, meaning it regularly receives new features. Microsoft has released five major updates so far: November Update, Jubilee Update, Creators Update, Fall Creators Update and April 2018 Update.

Microsoft's smooth design has spread to the windows login screen. Acrylic is now visible on the background of the login screen, an effect that Microsoft has given an over-the-top description: "The translucent texture of this transient surface helps you focus on the log-in task by moving the usable controls upwards the visual hierarchy while maintaining their accessibility. "


Separately, Microsoft renamed the name "Microsoft Apps" to "Your Phone Companion". This is to bring the Android app into line with the Your phone app, which gives you access to your phone's content, such as text messages, photos, and notifications. on your Windows 10 PC.

  • Resolved and problem with the result that Settings crashes when navigating to Accounts> Log in to the previous flight.

  • Resolved an issue where the list of settings of built-in phrases for the Pinyin IME was blank.
  • Resolved an issue in Narrator where activating Microsoft Edge history items would not work in scan mode.

Today's update clashes the build number of Windows 10 for the 19H1 branch of 18234 (made available for testers on September 6) to build 18237.

This build has three known problems:

  • Narrator sometimes does not read in the Settings app when navigating with the tab and arrow keys. Try temporarily switching to Narrator Scan mode. And when you switch off scan mode again, Narrator now reads when you navigate using the tab and arrow keys. You can also restart Narrator to work around this problem.
  • You may notice the background of reports and the Action Center loses color and becomes transparent (with an acrylic effect).
  • If you install one of the recent Fast Ring builds and switch to the Slow Ring, optional content will fail, such as enabling developer mode. You must remain in the Fast-ring to add / install / enable optional content. This is because optional content will only be installed on builds that are approved for specific rings.

Do not install this on your production machine as always.
