Microsoft releases Windows Feature Experience Pack to Windows Insiders

Microsoft is releasing Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.1070.0 to Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel. Feature Experience Pack will be used to deliver new feature improvements to the users outside of major Windows 10 feature updates, according to Microsoft. 

Also, the company is expecting to improve some features and experiences that are now developed independently of the OS. 

Microsoft said the new program will start smaller and expand in scope and frequency in the future so currently, only a limited number of features are being developed this way.

Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.1070.0 update includes:

  • Based on Insider feedback, you can now use the built-in screen snipping experience in Windows (WIN + SHIFT + S) to create a snip of your screen and paste it directly into a folder of your choice in File Explorer to save the screenshot there. Try it out!
  • Using the touch keyboard in a portrait posture on a 2-in-1 touch device now supports split keyboard mode.

Microsoft also mentioned, “Eventually, Windows Feature Experience Pack updates will get folded into the already existing servicing process for Windows 10 and delivered to customers that way through Windows Update.”

It could mean users will see more regular smaller updates to their OS in the future rather than two large Windows 10 updates for a year. 

However, Feature Experience Pack updates will be delivered to Insiders in the same way as any other updates, so if you are an Insider in the Beta Channel who installed 20H2 Build 19042.662, check Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update.
