A few hours ago, Insider Preview build 21337 of Windows 10 21H2 has been released and it shows some of the new features of the upcoming big update of the most popular operating system in the world.
This build is the first glimpse of Windows 10 21H2, which will be next fall’s major update for the operating system that, unlike 21H1, will be loaded with improvements, changes, and new features.
We already knew that this Windows update would come with several relevant changes in the design of its interface with new icons, but now we are learning about some other new changes:
One of the main new features of this update is the virtual desktops, a useful tool to separate workspaces thematically to increase productivity.
Users of build 21337 have already discovered that they can reorder and customize the backgrounds for each of the virtual desktops they have created. So, from Settings > Personalization, we can now change the background of each of the desktops individually.
Likewise, from the task view (which we can access with Win+Tab combination), we will have the opportunity to drag and drop each desktop to the position where we want to place it (or, by right-clicking on its thumbnail, select the “Move to right” or “Move to left” options from the context menu).
Finally, another option to rearrange virtual desktops from the task view is to use keyboard shortcuts: Alt + Shift + Left/Right Arrow, if you choose to do so.
According to the new Insider Preview build 21337, Windows Explorer will now have a less ‘dense’ design, with more space between interface elements, to facilitate its use on touch screens. Although for those who prefer the current design can also use the old version.
When the new Windows 10 update comes, Notepad will have a new icon and, for the first time, it will be located in the Start Menu itself. Likewise, it can now be updated through the Microsoft Store.
Windows Terminal was already installed through the application store, but the new feature is that this excellent multiterminal application will come installed by default.
Also, the automation tool Power Automate Desktop will now be installed by default in new versions of Windows 10.
