With Microsoft’s new Windows as a Service model, the company is always actively working on new builds of Windows 10 and on occasion, shares them with the public via the Windows Insider program. Other times, some of these builds that were not meant to be released, make their way to the Internet.
This is the case with Windows 10 build 10537 and while we know most of you will not install this release as it is an unofficial build, meaning it will not be supported and may have bugs that are not documented, I have gone ahead and installed it and created the gallery below.

One of the new updates in this release is that closing modern apps now uses the same animation as a classic Win32 app; the app fades away.
The desktop context menus that are currently white in the release build of Windows 10 now are more a cream color; it’s hard to notice but does appear to have changed between the last insider release and this version.
As I previously covered, this build also has a number of new icons as well, which you can see here (as well as in the gallery below).
It’s clear from the direction of this build and the previous official releases from the company that they are still in the process of refining the user interface. With Windows 10 Threshold wave 2 on the horizon for a November release, the company is actively including more changes in these releases to make sure they are fully tested before they push the bits to all users.
