Windows Insiders were faced with some confusion when Microsoft
accidentally shipped internal Windows 10 20H1 Build 18947 to
testers. The internal build of Windows 10 has revealed a
completely redesigned Start menu experience and also an
upgraded Control Center UI.
Way back in 2017, a blog post from Microsoft revealed the new
Control Center that would provide instant access to system
Control Center contains toggles that are currently
available in Windows 10’s Action Center and it would be
accessed via an icon in the system tray.
Control Center has reappeared in Windows 10 Build 18947 and it
can be enabled by editing Windows Registry. We were able to get
ahold of the hidden Control Center before Microsoft pulled the
untested Insider update.
After enabling the Control Center, the Action Center itself is
broken into two independent features. Quick Actions from the
Action Center are moved into an adjustable panel that expands
with more options when dragged upwards.
The new Control Center offers a more compact UI and new
notifications appear right above the Control Center.
The quick actions icons are currently broken and the feature
does not properly.
As mentioned, Microsoft is testing Control Center internally
and it’s not known if or when Control Center will make it into
Windows 10 20H1 preview builds for everyone. It’s entirely
possible that Microsoft will ship the Control Center or a
similar concept with Windows Lite.
