Windows10Header

As you might know, the Windows Insider Program is still continueing in the background for both Desktop and Smartphones and that means there are continually published new Windows 10 Insider Preview Builds which can be downloaded and installed by Windows Insiders. Just a few hours back the Team behind Gabriel Aul has published a new Windows 10 Insider Preview Build for the Fast Ring which can be installed through Windows Update. Build 10532 bring several new features such as improved Context Menus and a sharing feature for the Windows Feedback app. So there have been added a few features which bring a more finished impression to the next generation operating system, though there have been a lot of bug fixes as well.

Improved Context Menus

So Microsoft has once again heard what the Insider Community wanted to have in Windows 10, a more consistent of the OS across the whole operating system so that it doesn’t matter if you right click on the desktop or in Microsoft Edge. According to the published blog entry from Gabriel Aul at the Windows Blog they are still working on this but some progress is clearly visible in the latest published Build. With these improved context menus, the company is also bringing the dark and light theme to a new level, which means if you are using the Microsoft Edge browser with the dark theme you will also have a dark context menu, same happens with the task bar if you choose a dark theme for it.
Below you can have a look at how clean an beautiful the new context menus are looking like:

Windows Feedback App

As already mentioned in the first paragraph Microsoft is also constantly working on the Windows Feedback app to make it a good experience while giving feedback for the operating system. With this Build the app receives an in build sharing feature which allows you to share feedback directly from the app. This is especially helpful if you try to reach a lot a people with your feedback which you have submitted to the app.
The new sharing feature does of course include all apps which are supporting this, so it shouldn’t be problem to share it for example on Twitter or Facebook.
Microsoft does also mention that the since the Windows Feedback app is an Universal App for Windows and Windows 10 Mobile there will be also such a feature for the Feedback app of Windows 10 Mobile. This will be added with the next Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build, unfortunately there is not any date known yet for a possible release.

Mobile-Share-Feedback-2

Though we do not know when a new Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build will be available, Gabriel Aul is saying the Windows Insider should keep an eye on the Windows Insider App since new content will be made available soon. So he is indicating that either a new Build will be released in the upcoming weeks and months or we will get new features which will be released independently from a new Build.

Known Issues

This is another Insider Preview Build and as always, also this Build does have some Known Issues which you should be aware of. However these are not significant ones and should not be a dealbreaker if you are thinking bout installing this new Build on your PC.

  • Windows Hello face sign-on will not work on this build with some devices; the device can still be unlocked with other methods like pin, password, or fingerprint.
  • As reported by Insiders on the build 10525, 64 bit Google Chrome will crash on launch. Google is aware of the issue. In the meantime their 64 bit Google Chrome Canary build or 32 bit Google Chrome will work on this build.
