Windows 10 for PCs Build 10532 Arrives for Fast Ring Insiders

Posted on August 27, 2015 by Paul Thurrott in Windows 10 with 0 Comments

Barely a week after it issued its first post-RTM build of Windows 10 for PCs and tablets to Insiders, Microsoft has made a second TH2 (“Threshold 2”) build available. Windows Insiders on the Fast ring can upgrade to build 10532 today, and benefit from a number of small but useful updates.

Here’s what’s new in build 10532.

More consistent context menus. Critics have had a field day with the numerous different styles of menus that appear when you right-click (or tap and hold) on items in the UI, so Microsoft is working to make these menus more consistent in TH2. There will be more changes coming in future builds, but build 10532 introduces a new and modern look that will eventually be applied everywhere.


Theme improvements. It’s not clear yet what they mean by this, but Microsoft says it is working at “unifying” the light and dark theming across the OS.

Microsoft Edge improvements. Microsoft Edge has a number of new or improved developer-oriented features in this build, but no UX/functional updates.

Feedback sharing. The Windows Feedback app—which you will recall will be included in Windows 10 in TH2 and newer—now has a Share option so you can share your feedback with others. You can also copy your feedback to the clipboard so you can paste it elsewhere.


Bug fixes and improvements. As always, this new build includes unnamed bug fixes and improvements.

Just one known issue. Nothing major in this build, though I’m sure the usual suspects will try to milk an entire blog post out of the fact that Windows Hello face sign-on will not work on this build with some devices. That is literally the only new known issue, though the incompatibility with 64-bit Chrome versions remains (and can easily be worked around).

Microsoft also noted that a new build of Windows 10 Mobile should be out soon. (Tomorrow?) Apparently, there were a few blocker bugs that they’ve finally rectified.
