Microsoft releases the latest Windows 10 build
Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 preview build has been added as an update to its already successful OS. The improvements made by build 10547 are generally well received by Windows Insiders. This is because the tech giant has fixed many minor issues that were found in the initial release. Although this build is not yet open to the public, there are many updates that will be available soon based on the positive feedback.
The Start Menu was one of the smaller fixes. Some users complained that the original Windows 10 release only allowed three columns of tiles in its Start Menu. The newest Windows 10 release allows for four columns of tiles in the Start Menu. This means that users have more apps to choose from.
Windows Central stated that this is a similar option to Windows 10 Mobile. “The company is now bringing this feature to the desktop to enable users to fit up 4 medium-sized or 2 large Live Tiles per group. This feature can be disabled by going to Settings > Personalization > Show more tiles and activating the pill switch.
Build 10547 also saw a shift towards a more visually pleasing interface. Windows Spotlight is back with Windows 10 Pro. This means that users can now set their Lock Screen to automatically scroll through images from Bing Images. You can also choose to like the images and customize your Windows 10 experience.
The biggest update These small fixes were definitely a step forward for Windows 10, but what is the most important news from this build? The introduction of Object RTC for Microsoft Edge. This means that audio and visual calling apps will soon be able run directly through Microsoft Edge instead of needing to download plugins. Skype, a popular videoconferencing and messaging service, announced in a blog post that the new Windows 10 build will soon be compatible with Skype.
It is possible to chat via webcam from your browser. This is a major development not only for the industry, but also for Microsoft’s recent push for Edge to become more popular. Internet Explorer was disliked by many people, even those with basic computer skills. Microsoft’s latest Windows development sought to change that opinion by retooling their internet browser and even changing its name. Although Object RTC isn’t exclusive to Microsoft, the company released it on the new Windows build. This shows that Edge is different from Explorer.
