This flight is small, but it packs a slew of changes, including tweaks to the Start menu app lists with the consolidation of folders into a single “Windows Tools” entry that points to the new folder with all the options in the Control Panel.

There is a new “Cameras” settings page to enable, disable, and configure webcams and network cameras. Microsoft finally introduces an option to disable adaptive brightness control (CABC) to prevent distracting contrast and brightness changes on the display when content is displayed.

Windows Update makes automatic active hours the new default setting to allow the system to reboot devices to apply updates more accurately when you are not actively using the device.

The Microsoft Paint and Snipping Tool apps are now updated from the Microsoft Store, and there are various improvements to the News and Interests taskbar and more.
