By selecting the pause button you can now completely hide the Launchpad. However, it reappears within a while when you close your eyes or turn your face away from the screen. The company has introduced a second activation method which is the dwell to select the target and click a button with switch. Lastly, the company have also launched an open source Gaze Interaction Library in the Windows Community Toolkit and have also updated settings to manage more Eye control features.

Coming to accessibility, this build is also known to enhance Magnifier UI and Narrator. The former now has the ability to start reading emails and webpages. On the other hand, the latter now comes with a dark theme and text sizing options.

Next thing is that Microsoft is also introducing Focus Assist to automatically suppress notifications. You can even middle-click in order to dismiss notifications. You can use this feature when you quickly want to get rid of any notification. Not just that but the build has also made notification settings more easily discoverable. It also adds a new direct link at the top of the action center to manage notifications. This allows you to manage the list by which app you have sent the recent notifications.
