Latest Preview Build of Windows 10 Arrives with a Slew of Updates

January 14, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Developers at Microsoft had put a halt on updates after they decided to skip rolling out new builds during holiday period. But now that the holiday season is over, the developers are back in business with what they are best for.

The company has just rolled out the latest preview build for Windows 10, and it comes packed with a host of new features and improvements. Windows 10 build 15002 is now available for insiders on the fast update ring, and it comes almost after a month since Microsoft previously rolled out its preview build.

The major update among the apps comes with Edge. The latest preview build has added a number of new features in Edge, and it includes the ones like a new tab preview bar, a resume tab tool, On-demand Windows Refresh in Windows Defender, better control over night-mode (blue-light control) and many more.

The update is also focused on easy access of tiles, and as a result, users will now be able to place tiles from Start Menu into folders. And as always, Microsoft is continuing its work to improve Cortana. The latest build adds various Cortana command suggestions, and has also made the access to Cortana easier by making the button combo simpler.

Gone is the old Win = Shift + C trigger shortcut, and it has been replaced by an easier Win + C shortcut combo. The narrator shortcut has also been tweaked, and it can be now accessed only through a longer shortcut: Win + Enter to CTRL + Win + Enter. That’s to ensure that the Narrator doesn’t get popped up unintentionally.

There are also updates for Windows out-of-box experience (OOBE). The detailed update notes can be viewed from the official blog of Microsoft.

Microsoft hasn’t revealed an update for Windows 10 Mobile, and there’s also no word on when that would be arriving.
