Windows 10 build 20175

You can now upgrade to Windows 10 preview build 20175 if you’re a Dev Channel insider.

As you might remember, build 20161 introduced several interesting features, including a Windows 10 Start menu with semi-transparent themes as well as Alt + Tab improvements for Microsoft Edge.

Now, with the latest build in the Dev Channel, you get to explore pinned sites accessibility improvements in the Chromium-powered browser. Besides updating multiple flaws, this package includes UWP, Surface Pro X, and Fluent Design icon updates for insiders.

What’s new in Windows 10 build 20175?

Pinned sites accessibility

Certain browser improvements go hand in hand with OS improvements, which is understandably the case with the latest pinned sites update in Edge.

So, from now on, by clicking on a pinned site on the Taskbar, you can view all the open tabs for the specific site. The change should enable you to access web content a little faster.

However, you need to be using Edge insider build 85.0.561.0 or newer to sample the feature.

Reset-AppxPackage

Windows 10 build 20175 introduces a new way to reset your UWP apps—the Reset-AppxPackage command. You might find this option helpful when you need to clear data associated with a system component that you can’t reset in Settings.

AI-powered Eye Contact on Surface Pro

They say looking a person in the eye inspires confidence and belief in what you’re saying. If it’s true, the new AI-powered Eye Contact tech for the Surface Pro X camera might help with that when you’re making video calls.

Microsoft explains:

Powered by artificial intelligence capabilities of the Microsoft SQ1(TM) processor, Eye Contact helps to adjust your gaze on video calls so you appear to be looking directly in the camera on your Surface Pro X.

Fluent Design icons for Windows 10

If you like the redesigned Windows 10 Start menu, then you’ll love the new Fluent Design icons for Sticky Notes and the Snip and Sketch app.
