Windows 7 Milestone 3 Build 6758

Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7 on January 17, 2020. Yet, according to StatCounter, this version holds 3.04% of the Desktop Windows Version Market Share. So, others are still using it. On top of that, recently, the unreleased Windows 7 Milestone 3 Build 6758 has been leaked online.

However, due to the end of support, Windows 7 is prone to system vulnerability exploits and bugs. So, consider this if you use it or plan to give this build a chance.

What comes with the Windows 7 Build 6758?

Some people showcased a few previews of the Windows 7 Build 6758. For example, you can check the X post by @PhantomOfEarth. Also, if you want to see the build in action, watch the YouTube video of Ben S the animator. Additionally, you can check the BetaWiki for more information.

The Windows 7 Build 6758 brings new functionalities and design changes. For example, it has improvements for Windows Setup, the Control Panel applets, and a new look for the user-facing system shell. On top of that, the version makes small changes to the Start Menu and Microsoft Explorer functions.

In addition, the leaked Windows 7 version comes with a new interface for Paint. However, it is similar to the one from Windows 7 RTM. Also, with this build, Calculator and WordPad get a new Ribbon interface, gadgets are no longer available by default, and there are updates for the Media Player and other apps.

In a nutshell, the Windows 7 Build 6758 has some great features and updates. Unfortunately, it is too late to use it. After all, Windows ended its support on January 14, 2020. So, it is not a safe version because it lacks security updates. However, you can still try it to test the new interface of some apps and the rest of the features.
