Full build number: Windows 10 Insider Dev 21332.1000 Rs_Prerelease 210306-1859
We would let you that the Dev channel can contain quite unpleasant errors if you are a beginner. If you need more establishment, we recommend switching to the Release Preview channels or Beta (Late access).
Deploying the News and Interests widget»
- Over the past two months, Microsoft has tested several variations of the News and Interests widget on the taskbar. Many excellent reviews were received from participants of the Windows Insider program. In the end, the option that Microsoft believes is the best was chosen.
- Now the News and Interests pop-up window will display two columns of content, allowing you to quickly view the feed with blocks of weather, current news, finance, etc. By default, it opens when you hover or click. Based on the feedback, Microsoft will soon provide the ability to open the widget with just a click of the mouse.
- Given these changes, Microsoft resets the process of distributing the News and Interests widget to insiders on the Dev channel. This means that for some insiders, the widget will disappear from the taskbar. But don’t worry about it. Microsoft hopes that shortly the widget will be available to all insiders on the Dev channel.
- Gradually deploying features to insiders allows the company to quickly identify issues that may affect the performance and stability of the system.
Changes and improvements
- The recently introduced “Paste only Text” option in Clipboard history (WIN + V) now available to all insiders on the Dev channel.
- In this build, Splash Screens with UWP app theme support are re-enabled for all insiders on the Dev channel.
- 3D Viewer and Paint 3D will no longer be pre-installed when you clean install the latest insider builds. Both apps will still be available in the Microsoft Store and will remain on your device after the OS update. Thus, after the update, these applications should not disappear from the list in the Start menu.
- The math input panel has been removed from the system, as it is rarely used. However, the mechanism for controlling the input and recognition of mathematical data, on which the application worked, will remain in the system as an additional function called “Math Recognizer”, which can be installed in the section “Parameters” -> “Applications” -> “Applications and Features” -> “Additional Components”. Thus, although the application will not be part of the system, the functions for entering mathematical equations in OneNote, Excel, and other applications will continue to work.
