Releasing Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.1070.0 to the Beta Channel
Hello Windows Insiders,
We are testing a new process for delivering new feature improvements to our customers outside of major Windows 10 feature updates. Through the Windows Feature Experience Pack, we can improve certain features and experiences that are now developed independently of the OS. Currently, only a limited number of features are being developed this way, so we are starting out very scoped. By testing this process first with Windows Insiders, we hope to expand the scope and the frequency of releases in the future. Eventually, Windows Feature Experience Pack updates will get folded into the already existing servicing process for Windows 10 and delivered to customers that way through Windows Update.
Today, we are releasing Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.1070.0 to the Beta Channel. This update includes the following improvements:
- Based on Insider feedback, you can now use the built-in screen snipping experience in Windows (WIN + SHIFT + S) to create a snip of your screen and paste it directly into a folder of your choice in File Explorer to save the screenshot there. Try it out!
- Using the touch keyboard in a portrait posture on a 2-in-1 touch device now supports split keyboard mode.
Windows Feature Experience Pack updates will be delivered to Insiders through Windows Update just like builds and cumulative updates are. Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel can go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and check for updates to receive the Windows Feature Experience Pack update. Please note that in order to receive this update, Insiders in the Beta Channel will need to have 20H2 Build 19042.662 installed. Insiders will need to reboot to enable the above mentioned improvements and can check their Windows Feature Experience Pack version by going to Settings > System > About.
