Microsoft has introduced some new features for the Windows 10 Preview for PCs. The list of features includes Sets, Bluetooth, and Calculator improvements. All the improvements will be a part of RS5 branch pertaining to the upcoming Windows 10 update that will be released by the end of this year.
Windows 10 Sets
Sets is a handy feature that allows you to run multiple apps in a single window using tabs. As part of this feature, Windows users will be able to open tab for every instance of an operation. That apart, the Sets feature will also allow users to drag and drop tabs across windows. Alternatively, users can also use the Alt+Tab settings to move between the tabs. The Windows Sets update will also offer a new keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+T) to open a new tab in File Explorer window. Windows has baked in a new interface for opening new tabs and windows in the File Menu.
Thanks to the new context menu, right click on a Sets tab will let you “move to new window” and “close tabs to the right.” The update also brings in improvised “Previous Tabs” feature. Now you can now choose which Previous Tabs you want to restore. Unlike before the previous tab cab now be restored from any type of activity.
As far as Bluetooth is concerned, the preview comes with an option that shows battery level of the device. Yes, this works similar to the Bluetooth battery indicator function in Android and iOS devices. The battery percentage will update as and when the Bluetooth device is connected to the computer.
Windows calculator has been updated with better rounding capability and henceforth the square root calculations would now recognize perfect squares.
That being said, the RS5 or Redstone 5 is still 6 months away and it will probably be the last ‘Skip Ahead build’.
