Windows 10 build 9879 leaked in screenshots

| |
While the public version of Windows 10 is still on build 9860, Microsoft is testing build 9879 internally. The latest screenshot leaks shows plenty of new changes in the OS which include new changes to the taskbar, File Explorer and more.
Build 9879 was compiled around November 2, and includes a number of small improvements over the last public Technical Preview build being 9860. According to the screenshots published by IThome, Microsoft is fine tuning certain elements of the UI, as well as adding more options for the user.
One option which users have requested is the ability to hide the Search and Task View buttons on the taskbar. In build 9879, you now have that ability by right clicking the taskbar.
IE11 now has the feedback smilys in the top right hand corner of the window, which allows for submitting feedback directly from IE about IE. In Modern UI apps, the charms bar button drop down menu available in the top left has changed from three dots to the familiar hamburger-style button. It still functions the same, but it now has a more universal look to it.
Microsoft is constantly making several changes in the OS which will officially come somewhere in 2015. Build 9879 isn't expected to reach the public as it isn't labeled as a low flight build, however considering the stability of the most recent builds (being 988x), it's likely that we'll see a new public preview build very soon.
Check out all the leaked screenshots below.

So what do you think about the new changes. Is Microsoft going on the right path? What features do you want in the new Windows 10 OS? Let us know your opinions below.
