In a blog post on Monday, Microsoft released one of its biggest Insider Builds for Windows 10. It’s the company’s first build of the new year and features a preview of what’s coming in the company’s Windows 10 Creators Update, which is slated for release in “early 2017.”
Here are the most important updates:
Through Lower Blue Light settings , Windows 10 will automatically reduce the amount of blue light emitted from a PC at night by using local sunrise and sunset schedules.
- Microsoft is even adding a new screenshot feature that lets you capture a region of the screen to the clipboard, just like OneNote currently enables.
- A new tab preview bar in Microsoft Edge, which lets you visually glance at the rest of your tabs without leaving the page you’re on. You can also save and restore sets of tabs so it’s quicker to resume if you’ve closed all the tabs off or restarted.
- New and improved Cortana as she can now provide a list of suggested app-specific commands when you’re typing in an app into the search box for greater ease of discovery
- Microsoft Edge will now have now support for the new Payment Request API, which allows sites to make checkout easier using the payment and shipping preferences stored in your Microsoft Wallet.
- Tiled folders are now available in the Start Menu, allowing Window 10 users to group a bunch of apps into a folder.
- Windows Ink enhancements, including an updated Windows Ink pen, pencil and highlighter control to now visually indicate what color has been selected, as well as a new point erase feature
- Windows Defender improvements, including new options to run quick, advanced or full scans such as device performance and health scans that provide reports on your PC’s health.
