Windows 10 Build 14926 Released, Couple Of New Features Included

Posted on September 14, 2016 by Brad Sams in Windows 10 with 0 Comments


Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 10 to insiders, this time around it is build 14926. This build is out now and is for both desktop and mobile Fast ring users; there are also a couple of new features in this release.

Starting with Edge, there is a new ‘Snooze’ feature that serves as a reminder style tool. While this feature is experimental, according to the announcement post, what it allows you to do is create a reminder based on the page you are viewing. If you have ever left a tab open as part of your ‘to do’ list, this feature plays up on that use-case. The snooze feature allows you to put a site into Cortana’s reminders that will show up in the Action center as well with a notification.

For mobile users, the Wi-Fi settings page has been refined so that it matches the same view as on the desktop.

A big improvement for Insiders is the way new builds are being delivered; starting with this build, if you previously uninstalled an app, it will not be re-installed after you upgrade. For example, if you removed the Mail app, when you download a new build, that app will remain uninstalled on the new release.

Finally, if you use a PIN to login and have run into the problem where you start typing and numbers don’t show up because Num Lock was off, that is fixed going forward. For entering a PIN to login to Windows, Num Lock state is ignored which means your keypad digits will always work when logging into Windows.

As usual, there are quite a few bug fixes for both desktop and PC that you can check out at the source link above. If you run into any issues with this release (or find any unannounced features), make sure to let us know.
