Windows Admin Center version 1910.2, which was released to Windows Insiders last month, is now generally available. Version 1910.2 is a cumulative update to our 1910 GA release from last November that includes updates to the platform’s accessibility and numerous bug fixes. Users who have installed version 1910.2 through the Windows Insider Program may continue to use the same version.
In addition to bug fixes, we’ve evaluated user feedback and have implemented some highly requested features. Your contributions through user feedback continue to help inform and prioritize future investments to improve your user experience.
A major new feature we’ve included is the cut, copy and paste feature in the Files tool. When you select a folder or file in the Files tool, users have the option to cut or copy the file or folder. After the file or folder is cut or copied, the paste option will become available, and a user can paste the file or folder into a different path.
We’ve also enhanced several other features, including the Services tool. When managing machines using the Services tool, there is now an option to restart a service. There is no longer a need to start and stop a service in order to restart it.
In addition to the new features and fixes above, we are continuing to improve usability issues and make improvements to keyboard navigation and narrator support. We’ve also addressed reported bugs around CredSSP authentication.
You’ll be excited to hear that the Windows Admin Center ecosystem continues to expand with the GA release of new partner extensions and improvements on existing extensions!
