Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21364 Releases
Microsoft recently pushed Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21364 to the development channel users participating in the Insider Preview to bring many key new features and system improvements.
The key new features brought by this version include using the WSL subsystem to run Linux GUI programs, task manager process classification, and limiting process resource usage.
Japanese 50-on touch keyboard
The 50-on touch keyboard is a very popular keyboard layout in Japan. Japanese users can easily use the Japanese keyboard to directly input the corresponding content.
In this development preview version, Microsoft brings support for this keyboard layout to the Windows 10 system, and users can switch this layout after enabling the touch keyboard.
However, the current new touch keyboard is still being tested, so there are many known issues, such as the inability to insert full-width spaces through Shift, and garbled characters when entering certain characters.
Microsoft is actively testing the new touch keyboard and looking for problems to fix. If you are interested in using the keyboard and encounter problems, please report to Microsoft.
Changes and Improvements
Based on user feedback, Microsoft will now explain in detail why the user needs to log in to his account again when the “We need to fix your account (most likely your password changed)” notification pops up.
Under normal circumstances, the system will pop up such a notification after the user has changed the password of the Microsoft account. Of course, there will be other situations where you need to log in again.
Microsoft’s update will detail the reason when the notification pops up so that users can know its purpose. Of course, it can also reduce users’ worries about account security issues.
In this update, Microsoft has also adjusted the night mode. When the user clicks the night mode switch button in the notification center, the system will immediately switch to night mode.
Previously, when the user clicked, there would be a transition for a few seconds, that is, slowly switching from high brightness to low brightness. Now, this brightness transition has been canceled by Microsoft.
