Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 preview for the fast ring with a slew of improvements and new features. This makes it the first build of this year and will showcase what will be in store for the upcoming Windows 10 Creator build which is expected to be launched early this year, probably in the first quarter itself.

Cortana

 

Microsoft had released the Windows 10 Anniversary update in August 2016 and after that the Creators Build will be the major update. As we already know Windows 10 is being offered as a service with Microsoft not only fixing the broken features but also adding new features with nearly every build. Here are the list of improvements and new features that come along with Windows 10 Insider Build 15002,

Tab Preview

Microsoft_Edge_preview
Tab preview is a power tool especially if you love sifting through different tabs without actually having to load them.Tab Preview lets you take a quick look at the tabs and navigate using the mouse wheel or the touchpad.

Setting Tabs aside and InPrivate Mode

Microsoft_Edge_2
This has to be one of my favorite features, most of the time we end up clogging our browser with a ton of tabs open simultaneously. Apart from hogging resources the open tabs also distract the users. Microsoft has decided to dedicate a space wherein you can simply stove away all of your tabs in one place and start with a clutterfree browser. One can pull out the tabs as and when required without being disorganized. Starting with this update you can now open up an InPrivate window for Microsoft Edge from the taskbar icon by right clicking.

Blocking untrusted Flash content

Microsoft_Edge_3
Microsoft Edge will block untrusted flash content by default and will wait for users permission to allow any Flash content. This inadvertently enforces better security and will ensure optimum performance as well. Microsoft is expected to make this feature more intuitive in the upcoming builds and we will most likely also see a whitelist section.

Apart from the Microsoft Edge enhancements the new preview also heralds with a few improvisations here and there. Cortana can now be more contextual in nature and can also populate a list of apps while typing into the search bar. Windows Defender has also been overhauled and now sports a new run quick. Advanced and full scan options to deduce your PC’s health. A new feature will automatically reduce the blue light from the PC during night and Windows Ink enhancements include an updated Windows Ink Pen, Pencil and a highlighter control.
