Microsoft continues to improve its Windows 10 OS offering with the new Build 10130, which reportedly features new icons and a Cortana trigger, among others.
Build 10130 was released on May 29, and is already available for download through the Fast Ring of the Windows 10 Insider program. The official release date for Windows 10 has not yet been announced, although the operating system is expected to come out in July 2015.
Gabe Aul of Microsoft, blogged about the Insider program:
“We have a new build for PCs releasing today to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring –Build 10130. As I mentioned with the last build, from here onward you are going to see a lot of tuning, tweaking, stabilizing, and polishing which means fewer big feature changes from build to build. You’ll see that in this build which has a number of small improvements and more polish. For example – you will see some new icons (check out File Explorer) as well as many subtle changes to the UX. We heard a lot feedback around icons in Windows 10 and think these new ones are a bit more refined. Let us know what you think. We’ve also added new Taskbar animations for actions like moving files, downloads, etc. and more improvements to Start. And we also heard a lot of feedback around the border around Action Center – which is now gone in this build and looks much nicer.
We are still doing a lot of work so of course you should expect to see some bugs as well, but we’re making good progress working through bugs as we progress towards our public release this summer.”
PC World reported that Microsoft is offering several configuration options for the Start Menu. The new Windows 10 Start Menu combined the Live Tiles and menu options of Windows 7 and Windows 8, so users now have the option to turn app suggestions on and off. There is also the option to go straight to the full-page Start Menu upon launch. “Filtered Taskbar” is currently the default behavior. The app menus are also back to the tablet mode of Continuum. Users can unpin the Cortana menu in the Microsoft Edge browser, Favorites pane and Reading pane.
Microsoft tweaked the new taskbar “jump lists” and presented the new Cortana button, which is the WIN key + C. Bugs have also been reported on the windows 10 Build 10130, but Windows 10 is expected to have become better overall with the new adjustments.
