Windows OS

Microsoft has released a new preview of the Windows 10 update for the Fall Insider Developer Channel. The update fixes some known bugs and launches the release of innovations for other users.

New build 20180 has been posted on the Dev Channel. The development team mainly fixed bugs, among other things, resolved issues with the new Alt + Tab control option for edges. But now there are new features that Microsoft has activated and has already distributed to early adopters. These include, for example, themed tiles in the Start menu. Important for Windows Insiders who are still using an older version: Insider Preview Builds 20161 and below will expire on July 31st and should, therefore, be updated in a timely manner.

Before and after: Windows 10 start menu in the dark theme.
