Microsoft released Windows 10 preview build 10532 for Windows Insiders. If you are one of the fast ring beta testers, you might have already received the build notification via the Windows Update Service. It is the second public preview build after the release of Windows 10 RTM.
There are few bug fixes and interesting features in this build. This post will cover what’s new in build 10532. The post will also cover a small list of known issues.
According to Gabe Aul in his official blog post mentioned that, this build version 10532 of Windows 10 for Windows Insiders in fast ring focuses mainly on bug fixes and few improvements over the last build version 10525. In this new build, Microsoft improved the UI of the menus as asked by insiders over the past to keep it consistent everywhere. The changes are still in-progress and you will find more improved versions in the next builds. As per Gabe Aul:
We’ve heard feedback about the consistency of menus within Windows 10, so we’ve made some changes to improve these and give them a modern look at and feel. We are still working on it, but you’ll see some good changes with this build. We’re also further unifying the light and dark theming across the OS and are looking forward to you trying these latest changes and providing additional feedback.
In this build, Microsoft also added option to share a feedback from the feedback app. Now you will have the option to share using any application that supports the Windows Share functionality or get a direct link copied to your clipboard for pasting anywhere you like. This feature is currently available in the latest Windows build but will be rolled out to Windows Mobile build in the next preview releases, as it’s a Universal Windows Platform app.
There are some new feature announcements going to come soon for both PC and mobile version of Windows 10. Windows Insiders in the fast ring will be able to taste those bits first.
Here is a very small lists of known issues in Windows 10 build 10532, as mentioned by Microsoft:
