Recently, Microsoft reveals a latest test edition of Windows 10 build number 16215 along with a number of drastic changes. All of the new features will be available to all the users till the end of this year in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update but the Windows Insider on the Fast Ring can catch them immediately.
The first major change is the redesigning of the notification center with the separate sections provided for the apps, which has resulted in a complete new look. It combines group notifications from devices, apps and somewhere else together in a more logical way and look-wise also seems more attractive.
This latest Windows 10 update will allow you to pin your preferred websites to the taskbar. Obviously, the pinned websites will open in Microsoft’s Edge browser but this feature is returning after receiving feedback from the Windows 10 users. Microsoft is also making changes in its Cortana (an intelligent digital assistant created by Microsoft Office.com for Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, etc.), making the digital assistant able to prompt for reminders by scanning the images for things such as events, etc. For instance: Cortana can create the reminder for the taken photo of a poster or of other things. Cortana has also enriched with a new lasso feature that allows the stylus users circle content to create reminders for things such as movies. Additionally, Microsoft is also enhancing the animations for new tabs in Edge to speed up the things a little more.
Perhaps, Microsoft has come up with the biggest change in Windows 10 stylus support. The handwriting panel has been renovated with features such as more gestures, emoji, enhanced editing, quick access to emoji and symbols, automatic handwriting detection, etc. These features provide facilities such as words written with the pen get converted to text automatically along with shifting ahead to let you simply continue the writing. These also allow you to select the converted text to edit and make corrections along with scratching, joining, or splitting it by making use of the ink gestures. By default, the handwriting panel will be available floating next to where you are writing at present. The stylus can even be utilized to scroll between apps and websites now. An option “Find my pen” to show at which word or phrase you were on your device when you last used the pen, has also been included by the Microsoft.
Microsoft has also brought a new “winkey + period / semicolon keyboard” shortcut that will activate a new emoji panel from where one can easily pick up the most suitable emoji for his/ her messages, making it effortless to insert emoji into social media messages or even e-mails. The company is also providing the Windows 10 desktop and the tablet users with a new touch keyboard which includes features such as prediction, one- handed input, shape writing with your fingers or a stylus and emoji sug
