Microsoft is going to release a new update for Windows 10 which is being referred to as the Windows Fall Creators Update. This update will be released later this year and it is going to be packed with a bunch of new features. This week, Microsoft released the Windows 10 #Insider Preview Build 16215 for PCs which is loaded with a lot of new and improved features and is creating a lot of buzz right now in the tech world.

New features of the Microsoft Edge Browser

A lot of changes have been introduced in the Microsoft Edge browser. You will again be able to pin websites to the task bar, giving you access to your favorite sites with the click of a mouse directly from the taskbar without spending any extra time looking.

You can use the F11 key to switch to full-screen mode, and pressing the same key again will exit full screen.

You can now highlight text in EPUB ebooks using any of the four color options provided and add comments as well. You can even take notes as you read and save them. The animations have also improved for new tabs in the #Edge browser, making things smoother and faster.

The new Action Center layout

One of the major changes in this insider preview has been found in the Action Center which has been redesigned with acrylic which is a part of Microsoft’s Fluent Design system. There is now a separate section for apps and notifications, making the overall layout look clearer and neater.

The Cortana Camera Roll prompt

If granted permission, Cortana will prompt you to create reminders. To get access to this feature, you need to sign-in to Cortana using your MSA account and give it permission to access your camera roll.

Next time you take a snap, Cortana will ask you whether you want to create a reminder for that event.

The new Windows 10 stylus support

A lot of improvements have also been incorporated into the onscreen keyboard. With this preview, Microsoft has introduced a new XAML-based handwriting panel with more gestures, emoji, simplified editing, and automatic handwriting detection. As you write on the panel using a pen, you’ll now see your words automatically converted to text and the words will keep shifting to provide room for you to write more -- you can also make corrections using ink gestures. Several other features include the ability to strikethrough, scratch, split, and join text with gestures, as well as easier access to symbols and emojis.
