What you need to know

  • The Windows 10 Settings app could gain a section to help people find new features.
  • The section was spotted recently but isn't enabled in any publicly released builds at the moment.
  • The section would also include guides on how to use new features.

Microsoft wants to make it easier to discover new features within Windows 10, and a new section within the Settings app aims to do just that. The section isn't enabled in any publicly released builds at the moment, including Insider builds, but you can enable it if you play around in SettingsHandlers. Twitter user Albacore (@thebookisclosed) spotted the section and shared it on Twitter.

Windows 10 regularly gains new features, but not everyone is aware of the additions to the operating system. While many readers here will know about features like OneDrive Files on Demand, the Your Phone app, and the shortcut to type emojis, many people do not. This new section highlights recently added features and has guides on how to use them.

The section is titled "What's New" and appears within the Update & Security section of the Settings app on Windows 10.
