Windows 10 20H1 Will Let You Drag and Drop With Your Eyes

Microsoft just released Windows 10 Insider build 18932. This update features drag-and-drop for Eye Control, notification management improvements, and touch support when using smartphone screen mirroring. These features will arrive with Windows 10 20H1, expected for release around April 2020.

Drag and drop is a new feature in Eye Control, an accessibility feature that lets you control your PC with your eyes without any additional software. You need a supported eye-tracking device for this. Now, if you do have one, you can perform a mouse drag-and-drop action with just your eyes.

The latest release features improvements for taking control of notifications, too. Now, when a notification appears, you’ll see an option inside that notification to disable notifications for the app or go to its app notification settings. You don’t have to dig deep into Settings to find these options.

Other improvements include an option to disable notification sounds on the Settings > System > Notifications & actions (previously, this was only available in the old Sounds control panel), a button to quickly access notification settings in the Action Center, and the ability to sort the list of apps on the Notifications & actions page by “Most recent” so you can quickly find the apps you want to manage.

There are other improvements, too. If you’re using phone screen mirroring in the Your Phone app and have a touch screen, you can now control your phone’s screen by tapping your PC’s touch screen. Microsoft is also moving Windows 10 to a new settings sync engine.

For developers, the Windows search indexer will “exclude common developer folders, such as .git, .hg, .svn, .Nuget, and more by default,” boosting system performance while compiling or syncing large code bases.
