Windows 10 Build 10565 released to the Fast Ring of the Insider Program
Microsoft has released Windows 10 Build 10565 to the Fast Ring members of the Windows Insider Program.
So here are the changes in the newest version.
Microsoft Edge gets Tab Preview:
Hover the mouse cursor over any open tab and get a preview of the tab’s content, it’s like Aero Peek in the browser. This is quite a neat feature which is not available by default, in many modern browsers.
This isn’t a real surprise though. We already reported how Joe Belfiore, the Windows boss, accidentally featured “Tab previews in Edge“, during an event when he was showcasing Cortana in Microsoft Edge, at an event.
Microsoft Edge Sync Favorites and Reading list:
Windows 10 Build 10565 adds a really useful feature to Microsoft Edge, synchronization. More specifically, the browser can sync your Favorites and Reading list. Unfortunately, it appears that Sync for Bookmarks, Passwords, and Tabs aren’t available yet.
Skype for Windows 10 is finally here:
The much awaited VOIP app, which Microsoft promised would be deeply integrated into Windows 10, is finally available for users, at least to those lucky ducks who are brave enough to run the Insider Preview Build. Users will able to send an inline reply, right from the Action Center, where the notifications will arrive, without havind to open the app.
Cortana gets better:
Microsoft’s digital personal assistant, Cortana will now recognise the notes which you write digitally and help in setting up reminders based on the location, times and numbers that you input. The app will also help you track your appointments, events and more, and notify you a few hours before the event begins.
Colored title bars:
The title bars for apps in Windows 10 now have a bit of customization in the form of “colors”. This will allow the app to match in with the theme’s color you have selected for the OS. You can manually adjust the color from the Settings app by navigating to Personalization > Colors.
The new Colored title bars will work only if the option “Show color on Start, Taskbar, Action Center, and Title bars” is enabled, and should you dislike them just turn it off using the same option.
Start gets new context menus:
The Start Menu’s right click context menu, has been quite an eyesore in previous builds.
But that changes with Build 10565, which brings in a newer context menu, along with new icons for tile sizes. It now looks more like that on the Status Bar’s context menu.
Speaking of new icons, there are quite a few new ones in the Device Manager, as well as one for one of the core components of Windows, the Registry Editor.
In comparison this is what the old icon looked like: (the one in the middle)
Oh, and there is a bit of bad news, in that the language packs for Russia and Turkey aren’t available yet. Microsoft says, that these will be rolled out later this week.
