Windows 10 Insider Release Preview 15025

Hello Windows Insider,
 
We recently released one of the largest set of new Windows 10 Insider Preview* features since our Anniversary Update. It’s packed with updates for every Insider, whether you’re a creator, developer, IT Pro — or simply love Windows and want even more cool tools.
 
Go here for all the latest preview updates for PC and mobile. Here are just a few highlights:
 
  • One-step import of data to Microsoft Edge. Import your favorites, browsing history, saved passwords, and other data to Edge from another browser you have installed — all in one simple step.
  • Preview your browser tabs. It’s easy to lose track of what’s in your browser tabs, especially when you have many tabs from the same site, with similar titles and icons. Tab preview bar in Edge gives you a visual preview of every tab without leaving your page.
  • More control of multiple tabs. Click once to set all your tabs aside if you want to start from a clean slate. Then click again to bring them all back. Easy!
  • Group your tiles. Got too many tiles on your Start screen? Simply drag and drop a tile on top of another tile to create a folder for multiple tiles.
  • Improve your PC performance. If your PC is running slowly, the Refresh Windows option in Windows Defender may help. It starts fresh by reinstalling and updating Windows, which will remove most of your apps but keep your personal files and some Windows settings. For more details, see this forum post.
  • Do even more with Cortana.** Set recurring time-based Cortana Reminders for “Every Month” or “Every Year” — great for bill payment or anniversary reminders! (Another clever suggestion from Insiders.) And another cool Cortana feature: Cortana can display links in the Action Center to websites or cloud-based documents that you opened on one PC — so you can pick up where you left off on another PC.

 

We can’t wait to hear your feedback. In fact, with so many new features, we made sure to keep our team and the Customer Champs on high alert in Feedback Hub. And on a related note:
 
  • Join our February Bug Bash. We kick off our next Windows 10 Bug Bash this week and we are excited to hear from Insiders around the world, especially those who speak other languages besides English. As with previous Bug Bashes, you can use Quests within Feedback Hub to direct you to new capabilities. The first set of Quests for the February Bug Bash are available in the Feedback Hub. (Note that you’ll need a Preview build with the Feedback Hub to open this link.***) Stay tuned to announcements and Quests in the Feedback Hub throughout the week. And tune into our live webcasts (starting Feb 7, 2-4PM PDT) to get more details on Quests directly from our Windows engineers.
