It’s been a while since Microsoft released a new build for Windows 10 (build 10074) with the operating system set to launch “this summer.” Not too long ago, Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore shared some information regarding the launch of the Windows 10, saying that some of the features are mostly done and are a work-in-progress.
Earlier today, the folks at ITHome revealed a number of screenshots of the Windows 10 build 10123 which shows a handful of changes and improvements which will be on board. The leaked build will apparently come with a number of improvements and changes to Microsoft Edge browser, including InPrivate browsing feature which is already available in all major browsers, as well as the ability to save passwords and forms as it’s basically a necessity for most internet users, especially when you don’t have password manager extensions — at the moment. Furthermore, users will be able to customize the sites they want to open as soon as they open the browser such as top sites, etc.
Windows Update will also apparently get a deferred update feature to allow business users to get the updates on their machines at a specific time, without the need of turning off the feature completely. Microsoft’s personal digital assistant Cortana also received a few improvements, including a new Feedback option to allow users to offer their suggestions to the Windows team with a few simple clicks.
There are several other improvements to Start Screen, Start Menu, as well as the return of the popular Backup and Restore feature which was present in Windows 7 is now back in the latest build. You can check out the complete list of leaked screenshots and features at ITHome, and let us know about your thoughts.
We’ll update you as soon as the build is seeded to Windows Insiders.Further reading: Microsoft, Windows 10, Windows 10 technical preview
