Latest Features Included in Windows 10 New Build

Microsoft came up with loads of new features in the Windows 10 latest build (9926). You might already seen the “glimpses” of these features in the recent Microsoft event and in the post “What are the Exciting Stories Revealed in Windows 10 Event“. My laptop got upgraded to newest version of Windows 10 build in last week. The universal application experience is very exciting in the latest build of Windows 10. The important thing missing in the latest build is “Spartan the new browser” with built-in cortana. The Preview 9926 build has IE 11 for the browser, however it does have some bits of the new Spartan one coming later this year. Hopefully, Spartan will be available in the next version of Windows 10 build ! Also, the issue I’ve highlighted in the previous post is not resolved in Windows 10 9926 as well, we need to follow same painful “Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media” way to remove your external hard disks safely !

Nice Changes of Start Menu on Windows 10

Nice new changes you can notice, tiles and start menu together. I felt like it’s better arrangement of new application tiles and old (but new) task menu on Windows 10 machine.
