Microsoft Launches Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15031

Microsoft Launches Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15031


After shipping Windows 10 build 15025 to insiders enrolled in the Fast ring, and preparing for the bug bash that's still under way, Microsoft also started compiling rs2_release builds that are said to contain nothing else than bug fixes and improvements based on the feedback received from users. That of course means we are not done seeing builds for Windows Insiders for testing purposes either.

The folks over at Windows Blog Italia, which first reported the leak, had the chance to test the first build of Windows 10 Cloud.

The next major upgrade, Windows 10 Creators Update, is coming along nicely and Microsoft is adding new features that have been highly requested by users.

Microsoft's Windows 10 is a robust operating system that can do just about anything. When an app window enters this mode, it will be shown above other windows, preventing it from getting blocked.

One of the bigger changes Microsoft is introducing with this latest build is an experimental power slider option that will let some users select their preferred device power settings on a sliding scale that can be opened from the Windows taskbar. While the firm shared some information about the Project NEON UI & UX update, they also shared some of the new details about the Xbox One's UWP app situation.

Upgradeable to full Windows 10?

This preview build also expands the list of titles with which the Windows Game Bar is compatible. In terms of design, Windows 10 Cloud doesn't appear to bring any visible change compared to the current version of Windows 10.

According to the latest figures from Microsoft, Windows 10, the cloud-based OS launched in mid-2015, is now running on more than 400 million devices. This works similarly to how Smart Lock on Android works by identifying trusted BT devices, so if you have a certain mouse or pair of headphones you always use, this feature may be pretty helpful.
