Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has been trying hard to making its newest operating system Windows 10 a grand success. According to reports, the company has launched yet another Windows 10 test build for desktops.

What’s New In The New Test Build

Unlike previous updates, the company doesn’t want to leave any stone unturned this time. The newest Windows 10 build for desktop is the first build that allows the operating system to run on laptops, desktops and tablets. Microsoft made this build available to testers on March 30, 2015. The newest Windows 10 Desktop build has been named 10049 and includes new browser called ‘Spartan.’ Apart from ‘Spartan,’ Microsoft has also made available the newest version of Internet Explorer i.e. IE 11 for the new Windows 10.

Even though a few builds of Microsoft have leaked in the past few days, but still the tech giant hasn’t made any official statement. The company hasn’t released 10049 or any other Windows build lately, and don’t have any plan to do so in the future. The newest build of Windows, which was brought into the light on April 22, comprised of several fixes and a number of new features.

According to a blog post written about the newest build 10061, it includes a wide range of improvements, such as new calendar applications and mail. Apart from this, Microsoft has also made some improvements in Taskbar, Start Manu, Action Center, etc. The newly launched switching feature makes it easy for the user to switch between the desktop and tablet. Apart from these updates, the new build also includes a couple of other improvements such as Virtual Desktop and Task View improvements.

There were quite a few issues with Spartan browser; the company has fixed all the bugs concerning this browser and mail indexing. It will keep updating in the future about the latest updates.

  1. Easy – this is pre-release software. They warn you over and over do NOT INSTALL IT ON YOUR PRIMARY PC! If you ignored that warning and installed it a PC that is critical, that’s your problem.

  2. I installed the update and now I can not get online anymore!!!!!!!! Its not booting up anymore and cannot find anyone to call. Microsoft has no support number that I can call either. Whats going on over there?
