Background Activity Prompt

When there is a new background activity, you will see a slightly red backplate and a red pill under the app icon. The app icon will not flash all the time like before. It will not disturb your work. But it still reminds you to note that activity.

Touch Keyboard Icon

The touch keyboard icon in the taskbar has been updated to be more consistent with other icons’ sizes in the corner of the taskbar.

Calendar Flyout in the Taskbar

After you click the Date and Time area in the taskbar, you can fully collapse down the flyout by clicking the arrow-down icon in the top-right corner. The system will remember this action. That is, you will still see the collapsed flyout next time you click the Date and Time area. You can click the arrow-up icon to unfold it.
