    Really? Check out this quick snippet:
    Preview - Edwin000's library
    Now that would be disconcerting!

    Mines not doing that. Even if the Metro App is minimized my thumb nail preview stays in view as long as my mouse cursor in on the icon. If I move the cursor to the thumb nail the app will show on screen and the thumb nail stays too. I have to actually click the thumb nail for it to switch to the app and close the thumb nail preview like yours does.

    Edwin, did you do the update from ISO or the two MSU update files? I did it via the two updates.

    Curiosity killed the ferret . . . Why would it matter which "update" one used if they're the same? Unless they're different?

    I went ahead and downloaded the iso from MDL! Being tagged a 'Lean' build, I'm sure it was tampered with!

    Did't seen the leak yet but from what I read on Extremetech.com, they add higer DPI values to the UI list. This was possible to do manually but more users can now choose freely.

    Click image for larger version

    Better for higher resolutions for up and beyond 4K...

    Did someone confirmed this yet?

    One of the questions is how would the existing cursor pointers will handle the higher DPI... Do we get new pointers or is the OS just touch-friendly at this point? I mentioned in my Custom Cursors thread (in Customization section) that the mouse cursors have one or at most two layers for 32x32 and 48x48px sizes. If you go beyond 200% (@ 192 DPI) you will see the cursor gets forced-scaled up to the new (missing) size. So after I created some pointers with up to 96x96 layers, the higher DPI values didn't made the pointer look bad.

    I'm glad I made the pointers and I'm curious if we get new pointers in Windows...

    I look forward in testing the new update.

    Are they the same, build number that's is? It was the only reason I could think of as to why his behaves different from mine. It sounds like it may be something they fixed in my version.

    it might just be an earlier build and that was something they fixed or changed in mine.
