Microsoft Delivers Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14955 for PC and Mobile to Fast Ring

Microsoft has delivered a new build of the Windows 10 Insider Preview, and this one is for both PC and Mobile. Key among the new features are some nice updates to Outlook Mail.

Actually, compared to the past two builds, this one is a bit light on the new features. Which include:

Outlook Mail and Calendar 17.7466.4062x.0. Outlook Mail (which is bundled with Calendar) picks up the ability to open email messages in a new window, Quick Actions from new email notifications, and support for @mentions. That middle one is cool: Now, you can respond to email directly from the notification toast!

Narrator improvements. The Narrator app sports new context awareness options. Type ALT + Caps Lock + / to cycle between the choices, CTRL + Caps Lock + / to change whether the context is read before the item with focus or after, and Caps Lock + D twice to check the context at any time.

Beyond that, we just see some improvements and fixes on both PC and Mobile. Nothing really stands out, so check out the Microsoft blog post for a quick rundown. Ditto for known issues.
