What’s new in version 21343

New icons in File Explorer

Last year the icon update started in Windows 10, starting with system apps. They have since updated the various icons such as Windows Defender, the Narrator icon, or the Notepad icon. Now it’s the file explorer’s turn.

Note: After updating to this version, any folders pinned to Quick Access will disappear. If you want to keep them, we recommend that you write them down.

Some changes, such as the default folder orientation and icons, are now more consistent across Microsoft products. Notably, top-level folders like Desktop, Documents, Downloads, and Pictures have a new layout which should make it easier for us to recognize them at a glance. And yes, the recycle bin has changed as well.

Windows Sandbox and Microsoft Defender Application Guard (MDAG) improvements

Windows Sandbox and Microsoft Defender Application Guard both take advantage of the container technology included in Windows 10. In the past, containers were host-friendly. Starting with build 21343, a new routine is incorporated that is designed and optimized for containerized scenarios. It is lightweight and provides better load times in the sandbox and in Microsoft Defender Application Guard.

This change should not affect the compatibility of Windows Sandbox. Of course, we could notice changes in behavior. Additionally, Windows Sandbox now includes the Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser.
