Windows 10 build 15002 coming with big changes
See our Top 10 Notebooks:
Top 10 Tablets / Smartphones:
Windows 10 will soon get a solid update that is expected to deliver a lot of new features and improvements to tablets, convertibles, and notebooks. For now, the update is not for everybody, since Windows 10 build 15002 only rolls out to the members of Microsoft's Windows Insider Preview program.
Since we mentioned portables, it is clear that Windows 10 build 15002 focuses on power optimizations, next to other areas of the operating system's set of capabilities. For example, apps that seem to use too much power can be throttled. Along the same lines, Microsoft Edge now gets click-to-play for Flash content online, but not all Flash content is affected for now. A set of trusted websites will be whitelisted by default.
Night readers will enjoy the blue light reduction feature that allows them to schedule the system to change the display mode at a certain time to better match the time of the day and the ambient light that comes with it. The tiled start menu also gets updated for tablets and other touchscreen devices, but the list of changes also includes Windows Ink enhancements, improved Cortana functionality, an easier to use VPN connection process, and many others.
We will probably get back to Windows 10 once the next major update reaches all users, so stay tuned.
