Latest Windows 10 19H2 Builds Offer Calendar Improvements and Notification Sorting

Microsoft has rolled out two new 19H2 builds to the Slow Ring today. Windows 10 Build 18362.10012 and Build 18362.10013 are now available to Windows Insiders.

This release is a bit confusing as the company has now started testing the controlled feature rollout (CFR) functionality. It means that the newly released features will be turned off by default for some users. All the new features will be turned off for Windows 10 systems running 18362.10005. Moreover, the features are only available to systems running Windows 10 Build 18362.10013.

Microsoft has pushed many new features as a part of this release. The complete changelog is listed below:

Windows 10 Build 18362.10012 & 18362.10013

Calendar Improvements

Microsoft has made it easy for users to create events. Now Windows 10 allows you to create the events directly from their Calendar flyout. Simply open the Calendar flyout, choose your desired date and provide the details in the textbox.

Navigation Pane Changes

The recent releases bring navigation pane changes to improve the user experience. When you hover over the navigation pane available on the Start menu it expands so that you can click the right option.

Notification Improvements

Brand New Icons

Microsoft has added new icons for “Action Center” and “banner” in Windows 10. The change will make it easier for the users to adjust notification settings for the apps.

Notification sorting

The 19H2 builds released today improved notification sorting in Windows 10 Settings. Your PC will no longer use the sender name to sort notifications. The sorting is now done based on the most recent notification. The feature makes it easier for you to look for frequent senders.

Turn off notifications

Moving further, a new setting allows you to turn off notification sounds. Starting today, the setting should now be available on the notifications.

Manage notifications

A new “Manage notifications” button available in the Action Center allows you to directly launch the “Notifications & actions” Settings page.

Improved battery life for Intel PCs

Microsoft has addressed the power efficiency and battery life issues for some Windows 10 systems running Intel processors.

The new builds are now available to all the Slow Ring Insiders via Windows Update. However, it is better to wait for a stable release to avoid early issues.
