Published on : Jun 22, 2017

A thing that makes Windows 10 quite different from its predecessors is that it is a service, which makes it possible to update the OS regularly with not just fixes but also new features. Ever since the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft has released several updates, including three major ones – Creators Update, Anniversary Update, and November Update.  

Now the world is ready for the fourth update, which was released on June 21, 2017. The latest release includes a new Windows 10 preview for PCs with a plethora of new features and improvements spanning OneDrive, Edge, keyboard, emoji, sound, handwriting, settings, gaming, My People, shell, accessibility, calculator, Hyper-V, security, and mixed reality. This update bumps the build number for PCs from 16215 to 16226. The fourth build is expected to arrive later this year, most likely by September.

Several New Improvements and Features added to Microsoft Edge

The build provides various new features and improvements in Microsoft Edge such as giving greater control over closing tabs, improved experience while saving favorites along with editing URLs, and copy and ask Cortana. Besides this, Microsoft has introduced improvements in gaming, settings, ease of access, speech, headset reliability, and shell. With this, one can also get OneDrive files On-Demand and currency converter feature in calculators.

Several enhancements have been done in touch keyboard also, including text prediction and shape writing for more languages, one-handed curve-flick touch keyboard for Japanese, shifting up a gear, and paste away. However, Microsoft has also given a heads up about seven issues with this build.
