Build 16215 for PC brings many elements of Microsoft's new Fluent Design system and has some improvements for the few people who use Edge as their everyday browser. Microsoft has expanded the rollout of its new Fluent Design System across the operating system, adding it to the Start Menu and Action Center for the first time. Meanwhile, Action Center has been redesigned with separate sections for apps, and now groups notifications together in a more coherent way from devices, apps, and elsewhere.
The pen also gets the ability to scroll directly onscreen and a new "Find My Pen" feature that will show you the last time you used it if (or maybe more likely when) it goes missing. There's a new one-handed touch keyboard for tablet mode which supports SwiftKey-like gesture typing, even with a pen.
The update also brings the ability to pin websites from Microsoft Edge to the taskbar.
Back in April, I outlined the many ways in which Microsoft Edge still came up short against its web browser competition. These are some of the bigger improvements that have been added to the latest preview build, though overall Microsoft injected a whole bunch of new and improved goodies, such as numerous improvements to handwriting in Windows 10, better pen interaction, and some Game Bar tweaks. Excel will also be getting an additional feature that will allow users to open files that contain Dialog sheets. Ink gesture support to strikethrough, scratch, join, and split words is also coming for pen users to have a more intuitive writing experience.
Settings: There are new Video Playback settings, a new HDR and Advanced Color settings page, Per-App Defaults Settings page, an updated Network connection properties page, and a new context menu for Wi-Fi networks in the View Available Networks flyout. Aside from the new UI features and enhancements, staying up to date is one of the best defences you can have against malware.
Presenting new anti-ransomware protection features added in Windows 10 Creators Update, Robert Lefferts, Director of Program Management, Windows Enterprise and Security, also confirmed today that no Windows 10 customer was affected by the recent WannaCry ransomware outbreak that took place in mid-May. And those writing in both Chinese and English at once can switch to a new English mode for improved handwriting recognition in that language. Windows 10 notification toasts, or pop-up alerts, have received the same treatment.
Because of the accidental internal build leak earlier last week, Microsoft's Insider development team had to skip on the release of a fresh build the previous week. The said update is rolling out immediately to Windows 10 Fast Ring Insiders.
Build 16215 also comes with a host of smaller features, improvements and changes.
