The 22 best changes in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15002

One build, almost a whole new OS

Microsoft releases new builds of windows 10 for its Insider beta testers every so often―some minor, some really significant. You can call Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15002, released this week, a reallybig deal.

Microsoft’s notes on the new build ran to over a dozen pages, according to the company, and we found over 20 notable new features. (We left out some minor tweaks to keep this list manageable.) Some are cosmetic improvements that enhance the user experience, while others add powerful new features that Windows lacked before.

Running a vanilla PC? Don’t be jealous. This will all be part of the Creators Update, coming in “early 2017”―most likely in a couple of months. Eventually, you’ll be able to try these out, too. Let’s dive in!

Start menu folders

Windows Phone owners have long been able to group tiles in the Start menu into a folder by dragging and dropping them onto one another. That capability is now present in Build 15002. The result is a tidier Start menu, though without the Live Tile effects that a standalone tile delivers.

App throttling

One of the more intriguing behind-the-scenes improvements to Build 15002, app throttling does what its name suggests: It chokes background apps so that more CPU resources will be devoted to foreground tasks. Microsoft isn't even providing this feature to every Insider―only a small test group that Microsoft is selecting.

If your PC is low on memory or running an older CPU, this might be just the thing.Interestingly, rumors suggest that Microsoft may be implementing a "game mode" in upcoming builds that will dial down the resources of background apps, priortizing the game itself. In any event, Microsoft says we should all stay tuned for "more updates" in February.

Blue-light controls

At the very least, the presence of blue light after sundown can mess with your circadian rhythms, preventing you from getting a good night's sleep. Other studies have suggested links to obesity and even cancer. With Build 15002, you can tell Windows to automatically decrease the amount of blue light your display produces after dark.

Microsoft Edge tab preview

The ability to preview other tabs is something that other browsers have already put in place, but the capability has now been added to Microsoft Edge as well. Simply click the down-caret icon from the tab list and scroll back and forth in a tab carousel.

'Set aside' Edge tabs

As Microsoft puts it, sometimes you just want to start with a clean slate. Edge now allows you to essentially tombstone tabs you don't want to deal with right now, and restore them later. Yes, you could break out a window of Edge tabs and minimize them, but this appears to put less stress on your PC's resources.

Windows Ink adds a stroke eraser

Another small but incredibly useful (and overdue!) addition, a stroke eraser doesn't cut a swath from your digital ink, but merely backtracks, erasing one stroke at a time. We don't necessarily think you should be using Windows Ink , but if you do, this is a handy tool.

Suggested Cortana commands

One of the most frustrating aspects of a digital assistant is not knowing everything it can do. Windows has partially solved this problem with Build 15002. Now, if you start typing a command into the Cortana search box, you'll see some suggested commands pop up. As you can see, they have a ways to go to be truly useful.

Cortana now has recurring monthly reminders

It seems weird, but Cortana hasn't had monthly (pay the water bill!) or annual (when is my anniversary?!) reminders until now.
