Windows Shell improvements
Recover your passwords and passwords from the lock screen: Self-service solutions enable end-users, free the IT assistant/assistant administrator, and save organizations’ money. Cloud Self Service Password Reset (Cloud SSPR) has been a popular Azure AD Premium (AADP) feature today, and now we want to take it one step further – Windows Integration. If you are using an AADP or MSA account and you find yourself stuck at the login screen, you can now reset your password and PIN right here. Just click on the button “Reset Password” (for password) / “I forgot my PIN” (for PIN), and you will be prompted to go through the AAD or MSA line to reset it. After the reset, you will be taken back to the login screen, where you can log in using the newly completed login credentials.

We have improved the way Microsoft Edge processes are labeled in Task Manager: In Build 16226, we introduced grouping application processes together in Task Manager. For Microsoft Edge, the tab process is marked in Task Manager with their website title.
If you are in the quick loop of the Windows Insiders program, go to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates.
We’ve heard your feedback that other Microsoft Edge processes might use better labels. Starting with Build 16241, add-ons (such as the Chakra JIT Compiler, UI service, and Manager) are now labeled in Task Manager. We will continue to modify these labels based on feedback.

Distributed Optimization was synonymous with “Peer-to-peer” but few know that it is also used as the primary downloader for content downloaded from Windows Update and Windows Store. Distribution optimization, even without P2P, is what makes downloading from the Windows Store faster, as well as making downloading of Feature and Quality updates more reliable. Consistent with this, the main settings page – now titled “Distribution Optimization” – states that while you can enable or disable the P2P functionality, use Optimize Delivery on downloads. Updates and applications directly from Microsoft content servers.
