Windows 7: 7022 New Stuff?

7022 New Stuff?

Lets post screenshots and/or descriptions of things we think are new in 7022 to help others decide whether to install:

First thing I found -- I opened Devices and Printers from the Start menu and it popped up an infobar asking for permission to upgrade my icons. I don't remember ever seeing this before:

This might be related but appears busted as Windows Update shows nothing but the Maintenance Action Center is complaining about my missing SMBus controller:

Also, there used to be one option, "Show desktop icons" that would show or hide both icons and gadgets. Now there are two options.

7022 must be getting closer to RC as they've started adding sample media:

You can now remove DVD Maker, Media Center and Media Player as well as Windows Search:

EDIT: DO NOT REMOVE SEARCH

I was hoping that removing search would revert libraries back to Vista behavior -- no dice -- it breaks the libraries, the coresponding Start menu items and search box. Seems to also kill federated search. Makes you wonder why they allow you to remove it at all!

Not worth a screenshot but User Accounts now checks in the profile folder (usually c:\users) to see if a profile with that name exists before creating the user, complains about it but does it anyway.

Action Center tray icon shows a little clock overlay while it's starting up rather than remaining MIA for a while on slower machines...

Maybe more to come as I install 7022 on the notebook...

Not sure about media center,..

The mp3 bug patch is already included in 7022.

And here is a pic of the new light blue panel:

What's new in the leaked Windows 7 build 7022

There has been little talk of Windows 7 builds since the public release of the first beta build (7000) last month, but Microsoft has definitely been busy. What many seem to overlook is that build 7000 was compiled on the afternoon of December 12, 2008.

Since then, there have been many other builds compiled, including 7003, 7004, 7012, 7015, 7016, 7022, 7025, 7028, and 7034. A few of these have leaked, but only one hit public torrent sites. This past weekend, the 32-bit version of build 7022 started to rage across piracy networks. According to the build string (7022.winmain.090115-1850), it was compiled January 15, 2009 at 6:50pm. To put things into perspective, build 7025 was compiled exactly five days later.

Just right click on the "Libraries" icon in the left pane of Computer, and click "Restore default libraries". This will also restore any "modifications" you may have done to the locations of library items on that pane.

Also, the search bar on the start menu will disappear if you disable search. If you want it back,just re-enbale search then re-boot and it will re-appear.
Hope this helps some users who may be wondering what to do next.

Thanks for making that clear. Yes, you can fix libraries and start menu search by reversing the action you took in Windows Features. Unfortunately, "Restore default libraries" will have zero effect unless you've already reinstalled search.
