Eye Control has some new options including mouse drag-and-drop, allowing you to combine click and drags with Shift and Ctrl modifier keys. The launchpad can now be hidden by selecting the pause button and reappears when the user briefly closes their eyes or looks away from the screen. A second activation method has been introduced that allows dwell to select a target and click a button to switch. Microsoft has added an open-source Gaze Interaction Library to the Windows Community Toolkit along with updated settings to manage Eye Control features.
