New Features:

 Mini Keyboard

  • We are flighting a new Mini Keyboard and would love your feedback.  If you prefer or require the bigger keyboard for accessibility, it is still available in Settings -> Ease of Access -> Magnifier -> Larger Keyboard. This mini keyboard floats over the UI, so will position itself smartly around textboxes. If you see any positioning or general issues, please file bugs with as much detail as possible (app you were using, screenshot etc.) as we deliberately have minimal logging around text entry for privacy reasons.  Keep an eye out for a quest and survey!

 Media Remote Programmable Buttons

    • Access this via Settings>Kinect & devices>Media remote.
