The new Microsoft Windows 10 Fall Creators Update test build, no. 16257, includes many improvements to the operating system. Let’s quickly review the most interesting ones:
Eye Control, as the new eye-tracking feature is called, is currently still in beta. As of now, it’s only compatible with select Tobii eye-tracking hardware, however, Microsoft is planning to add many more devices to the list.
- New Windows console colours
A cosmetic update to make things more modern-looking.
- Cyber security improvements
Microsoft is making improvements to Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG). Now, every time you accidentally download malware through your browser, WDAG will isolate it and contain the threat. That way, it won’t be able to spread across company networks.
- Edge user interface changes
With the help of these new user interface changes, Edge now looks a bit more modern. The changes are part of the Fluent Design System overhaul. The new update also addresses some of Edge’s technical bugs.
- Input improvements
This change addresses certain technical issues as well as improving on the touch keyboard performance.
- General fixes and improvements
Through these general improvements, several minor bugs have been fixed. For example, the battery flyout will no longer randomly show strange text, and switching back to a new tab will no longer shift the focus to the top of the page instead of where you stopped reading.
