Yesterday Microsoft released a new build of Windows 10 for Windows Insiders on the fast ring. The main change in Build 10547 is you can have an extra row of tiles in the start menu or the start screen, so rather than the three rows you have now you have the option of a 4th row. In portrait mode on a tablet the extra rows look good but as you will see in the video when you rotate it to landscape the screen positioning is off but it does seem to sort its self out eventually.

The other change is when in tablet mode if you use the task switcher you can snap another app to the side of the first app, just like in Windows 8.1. It works much better than the previous way of working. Another visual change is you can turn off the Windows image on the sign in screen, this must have been something Insiders have been asking for.

In this video I take a look at the new start menu setting, snapping apps and the lock screen.
