Windows 10 Build 21359 includes a new power option and Timeline changes

Posted by

Microsoft releases build 21359 of Windows 10 in the dev channel. Insiders will notice a new power option in the Start menu that lets you restart running apps after a reboot and enable the corresponding option in the settings menu with a single click. Changes have also been made to the timeline feature, which prevents new activities from being added, so it literally stops working.

What’s new in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21359 (Dev)

Changes and improvements

  • Added an option to the Power menu in the Start menu to restart applications after logging in when the device is rebooted. If checked, this option activates the option under Settings > Accounts > Connection Options > Restart Apps that we introduced in 20H1.
    Actually, this option was available in earlier versions. However, it was hidden. Enable
    Windows 10 to activate the Restart Applications command from the Power menu.

You can also view recently used files with OneDrive and Office.
