Before we dive any further, 9888 is an internal (partner) build of Windows 10 which is not planned for public release. If you want to download more stable version, check out our previous post.
Here are the list of major changes.
- build 9888 appears to be the first build which attempts to begin unifying context menus throughout the operating system. In current public builds of Windows 10, right clicking a file within File Explorer or on the desktop reveals a context menu which differs from that on the Start Menu / Start Screen.
- PC Settings app which was found in the last two iterations of public builds is now the default PC settings app in build 9888, and the PC settings app has simply been renamed to “Settings”.
- new Settings app includes a search bar at the top of the available options.
- build 9888 is first builds of Windows 10 to feature version 10.0 of the NT kernel.
- Microsoft has added an additional two animations for windows, one each for maximizing and minimizing.
