Microsoft on Tuesday officially released its first update to the Windows 10 Technical Preview operating system, which it first launched on Sept. 31 and is already being used by 1 million people. The Windows 10 Technical Preview is a sample taste of the brand new Windows 10 operating system that will launch next year. So far, users have been able to get a taste of the new windowed-Modern apps, the return of the Start Menu with live tiles and more. Now, Microsoft has a new version that early testers can take advantage of.
There’s a new build of the Windows 10 Technical Preview available, for you enterprising early adopters who jumped on the first release. Build 9860 (up from Build 9841) adds a host of new features, squashes some bugs and likely brews up a few new ones. Microsoft says that there are nearly 7,000 new improvements and fixes since the first Windows 10 build we checked out a few weeks ago, many of which were based on the handy Windows Feedback app that’s bundled with Windows 10. There’s a new Action Center (borrowed from Windows Phone 8.1) that’ll list things like incoming messages, status updates, emails and calendar events in one spot. The virtual-desktops functionality has also been improved a bit: a new animation shows you when you’re bouncing around between desktops, and you can use a new keyboard shortcut (Windows key + Shift + arrow key) to move apps between multiple monitors.
