Build 2015 Day 1 recap: Windows 10, Edge, HoloLens, Android and iOS apps, and much more.Day 1 keynote of Build 2015 is now over, bringing with it a plethora of news regarding Microsoft’s cloud platform, as well as Windows 10 and HoloLens. Let’s dive right into it and quickly recap all the important key announcements of the event.
Windows 10 Build 10074 is available right now directly from Microsoft in ESD form, and you can download them directly from Windows Update. We’re not sure if Microsoft is going to keep the links up for long, so I’d get downloading if I were you. Keep in mind the build is an ESD file, meaning it needs to be converted into an ISO file which can be done via an ESD decryption tool.
Windows 10: Cortana and Search get integrated with the Start Menu. The BUILD developer conference is just around the corner, and Microsoft has been making a number of changes based on the feedback submitted by Insiders. One popular bit of feedback concerned the way Search works, and how instead of searching from the Start Menu like in previous versions of Windows, it was done through Cortana.
Several screenshots apparently from Windows 10 for phone build 10070 have popped up online and appear to show a change in the way Windows Phone Live Tiles are displayed, now with very little space between each tile.
Microsoft is adding a new Personalization section in the Settings app to let users customize the desktop background, color scheme, lock screen, and themes – all in one place. See here, How to customize the Personalization settings in Windows 10.
Microsoft has released build 10061 to Windows Insiders, which includes a hefty amount of new changes and features. Microsoft has posted a changelog of all the new features and fixes which you can expect to experience once installing this build. You can grab this update now via Windows Update, just simply check for updates and the download will begin.
Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 for phones build 10052 to Fast ring participants. This build is a minor update to build 10051, which was released over a week ago.
