From Technical Preview Build 9841 to Build 9926 ΓΆ€“ Is Windows 10 Any Better Already?

When Build 9841 was first announced to the public and became available for open usage, many experts agreed that Redmondâs new progeny is the one to watch. Moreover, the one to get and the one to use on a home PC. And although September technical preview was quite raw and had tons of minor bugs, the new system looks far beyond promising.

As you know, some time ago Microsoft released Build 9926, which was designed to unravel what the company has been doing for nearly half a year. To tell the truth, the build isnât final, never were and perhaps never will. But if we compare the two builds â 9841 and 9926 â even an unlistening eye will take notice of a number of major changes that have been made by Satya Nadellaâs developer team. Should we take a look and what new features Microsoft brought onto stage?


Continuum Mode


How to secure success of any future Microsoft OS? Remove the Start button from a current OS and thump the chest to return it in a future OS. Profit.

Windows 10 is no exception to Microsoft new practice. Redmondâs brand-new OS will feature the Start button by defaults. But how will it look like? Early builds were noticed to have the Start button look like the one from Windows 7 but merged with Metro interface. The whole thing looked nice, yet UI and UX werenât quite well-thought. Has anything changed in the freshest Build 9926?

Yes. The new Continuum mode has been implemented. Whatâs hidden beneath the fancy title? In point of fact, a click on the Start button triggers a some sort of a tablet mode, where the list of all your Metro apps goes full-screen. Sounds like we had it in Windows 8 already? Absolutely, but today it somehow doesnât irritate an eye and even stands⦠appealing.

Cortana

Would you like to have a bit of Halo in your life? No problem, Cortana from a famous X-box game series is here to assist you with everyday being-a-Windows-10-user needs. She used to help Master Chief, now sheâs here to help you. Despite the fact thereâs still much work to be done with Cortana, itâs already quite helpful and generally fun to hang out with.


Applications

As youâve already known, in Windows 10 Redmond is doing its very best to alloy desktop apps with mobile ones and make them universal having the same functionality on all platforms. All in all, as seen on the example of Build 9926, the work follows in the right direction.

Settings menu has been redesigned. Photos app can now synchronize content with your Windows Phone device (does anyone even own it today, by the way?) and also features a lightweight photo editor. Maps have been re-thought and re-designed as well. Plus, an offline map mode will be available in Windows 10, which is a nice move forward from Microsoft.

And finally, Windows Store is to change as well. In Build 9926 there are⦠two stores. The one from Windows 8 to which everyone got used to, and a new Store with prefix beta, which will obviously be applied in the final release. What has changed? New design, new categories, a vertical scroll instead of a horizontal (um, yuck!) one.


Notifications

As supposed by experts from termpapersworld.com, a rather useless thing for a desktop user, yet might be useful for a tablet or smartphone adherent. It shows Skype messages, you can quickly turn on/off Wi-Fi. A useless widget from Windows Vista Dark Ages it is, but still it might be either perfected or removed in the final build. As for the rest, no major improvements in build 9926 in comparison to 9841 have been introduced. Minor bugs were fixed, but they arenât worth mentioning.
