Desktop Spotlight feature in Windows 10:-

Microsoft is introducing Desktop Spotlight for Windows 10 and this new feature would display Bing’s beautiful images as a slideshow. However, this feature is presently exclusive only to the lock screen, but it is finally coming to your desktop.

To enable this Desktop Spotlight feature on Windows 10, firstly go to Settings and then to Personalization and then click on Background and select Spotlight Collection in the drop-down menu appeared after clicking Background. Now this will allow you to have the Bing images slideshow going on your desktop automatically. This feature is not working in the preview builds at present, but the company is expected to enable this soon.

Theme-Aware Splash Screen feature:-

The latest operating system is getting support for the theme aware splash screen that will appear when a UMP program is launching. For an instance, you will notice this new theme-aware splash screen when launching Microsoft Store, Settings, Groove Music, etc.

At present, this splash screen focuses on Windows 10’s accent color with the logo of the app in the center and this will change soon. Interestingly in the future release, modern apps will match the system theme (light or dark). This makes the apps launching experience look much cleaner and consistent when using the dark or light mode. However, the company has already enabled theme aware live tiles in the Start Menu. This feature is now heading to the splash screen of your apps.
