A new Paint 3D app was first introduced in Windows 10 with the Creators Update. The app was used to create 3D objects from 2D sketches or images. Along with this, Microsoft also added a new "3D Objects" folder in File Explorer which was not useful for most of the users.


Starting with Windows 10 build 21322, the company is going to hide this folder from File Explorer to reduce the clutter under "This PC". If you need, the company also shared the way to access this folder. Continue reading further to know more about this build.


Windows 10 update to hide 3D Objects folder in File Explorer


Microsoft released a new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21322 from the RS_PRERELEASE branch. The build is now rolling out to the Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. With this build, Microsoft added a few changes and improvements to Windows 10 and fixed a list of issues.


The first change that Microsoft listed in the official release notes about Windows 10 build 21322 is hiding the 3D Objects folder from the File Explorer. The company also mentioned how you can still access this folder after updating to the new build. The second change is the removal of the "Reduce taskbar updates" option from the News and Interests context menu. The third change in this build is the temporary removal of the touch keyboard refinements that the company added in Windows 10 build 21301. This has been done to fix some issues.


Changes and improvements in Windows 10 build 21322

  • The 3D Objects folder will no longer be shown as a special folder in File Explorer after updating to this build. If you need to access this folder, you can do so via typing %userprofile% in File Explorer or through the navigation pane option “Show all folders”.
  • [News and interests] We removed the “Reduce taskbar updates” option from the context menu. We expect it to return in a future update.
  • We have temporarily removed the touch keyboard refinements noted in Build 21301 to fix some issues. However, the updates to the default keyboard layout on 12” or larger screens and the candidate bar remain available to everyone in Dev Channel as noted last week with Build 21318.



Fixes in Windows 10 build 21322

  • We fixed an issue where if you tried to access an Azure Active Directory (AAD) joined device via Remote Desktop (RDP), it would fail after updating to recent Dev Channel builds.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in your PC bugchecking when switching between users.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in deleted files unexpectedly remaining visible on the desktop until the desktop was refreshed.
  • [News and interests] We fixed an issue where the taskbar button might show no content after the primary monitor was changed.
  • [News and interests] We fixed an issue where news and interests would continue to refresh content in the background even when the screen was turned off, consuming resources.
  • [News and interests] We fixed multiple issues impacting performance and reliability.
  • We fixed an issue with the new “Paste as plain text” option in clipboard history where clipboard history didn’t close after it was used, inconsistent with the normal paste behavior.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in erroneous torn write errors being logged.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in delayed audio playback on certain devices in the last few builds.
  • We fixed an issue where if you changed the calendar format multiple times under Settings > Date & Time > Region, the enumerated values of the other data formats may not be correct.
