Windows 10 Preview—Here’s What you can Expect.
- Night Mode
The most important feature is the Blue-light reduction feature or Night Mode that enables your PC display to shift colors so that it doesn’t stress your eyes. The night mode basically switches resolutions to ensure a smooth visibility experience.
- Smooth Browsing Experience
The new and improved Edge browser is furnished with a ‘Tab Preview’ feature. It comes in handy when you’ve plenty of tabs open and you need to find an important one. This feature sets aside the important tabs that you’re looking for so that you don’t have a browser cluttered with too many tabs.
There’s a space dedicated to only the important tabs, which is certainly an important feature for digital marketing experts.
- Shortcuts on the Start Menu
The new Start Menu displays shortcut of inside tile folders. Although this feature was already built for the mobile, it’s built for the PC as well. How does it work? Pretty quickly. You just have to drag and drop tiles on top the other to make your tile folders.
- Flash Blocker
Microsoft has already switched from Flash to HTML. They’d announced to block all Flash run websites by default hence, the flash blocker came into existence. In case, you need to view the Flash sites, you’ll have to click to play all Flash websites while moving forward.
- Deferred Updates
Window updates are probably the most annoying thing in the world. The PC prompts you to update your software every now and then and most of these updates are not useful for you. However, now, you can either pause or defer all the updates for up to 35 days. Besides, you also get to choose what updates you wish to keep. The best part is the PC won’t restart sporadically, even after the updates have been installed. This is extremely beneficial because you can avoid restarting the PC when you’re doing your work.
So these were the major changes highlighted on the new Windows 10 preview. As of now, the update is available for Windows Insider members only. Since the preview is in testing mode, there are unknown bugs and glitches that need to be fixed. If you still want to download it, do so at your risk!
