Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider build 16237 today, and it’s once again packed with some improved features for Windows Insiders to test out. Of these new features are some noteworthy changes to Microsoft Edge, so please have a look at what’s new and improved with Microsoft Edge in this build by reading below!
- Read aloud with word and line highlighting for all websites: With the read out loud feature for web, users will be able to read aloud any webpage with word and line highlighting.
- PDF read aloud: With the read out loud feature for PDF, users will be able to read aloud any PDF document with word and line highlighting.
- If you click Share in Microsoft Edge, the Share UI will now match the Microsoft Edge theme if it is different from the rest of the system. Share UI will also now launch under the Share button, rather than in the center of Microsoft Edge.
- When you add a favorite, you will get a delightful animation now that indicates where users can find their most important websites in the future.
- We fixed an issue where copying double byte characters (for example Japanese or Chinese) out of Microsoft Edge and pasting into another app wouldn’t show the characters correctly in the second app.
- We fixed a Microsoft Edge issue from the previous flight where opening links in a new tab might cause a new window to open with the link instead.
- We fixed an issue from recent flights where the Print dialog in Microsoft Edge would show a blank preview page and lead to printing a blank page.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the Microsoft Edge context menu not showing up on pen barrel button tap.
- We fixed an issue when returning to Edge after a crash. Your tabs will be automatically restored for you.
These fixes should make Microsoft Edge much more stable moving forward into newer Windows 10 builds. Are you still expecting or experiencing any issues with this build?
