Microsoft have just released a new Windows 10 Restone build for Windows Insiders on the faster ring. Unlike the last couple of builds this release actually has some new features. It is now easier to search for music from Cortana with the addition of a music button in the top right, clicking it will prompt Cortana to listen and search for the song that is playing.

The favourites bar in Edge has a minor change with the ability to add folders and show icons only. Also in Edge is a clear fast way to clear browsing data and better download prompts (details from Microsoft):

Clear browsing data when you exit Microsoft Edge: You can now choose to have your browsing data cleared when you exit Microsoft Edge. Just click on the three dots at the top right in Microsoft Edge and go into Settings, click on the “Choose what to clear” button under “Clear browser data” and enable “Always clear this after I close the browser” after choosing what data you want cleared.

Improved Download Prompts in Microsoft Edge: You can now configure Microsoft Edge to show a prompt when you start a download, allowing you to choose where to save the file. Just open the Microsoft Edge settings pane (the three dots at the top right) and look for the option under “Downloads settings”.

You can attach phones to Skype messages with the paperclip icon:

Messaging + Skype improvements: You can now attach photos to your Skype messages by clicking or tapping on the paperclip icon at the lower left as you’re composing a new Skype message to a contact. Additionally, you can also invoke the Camera app to take a photo to attach to your Skype message too or send along your location.

This build fixes the PC Reset feature so it should now work correctly and is also fixes the RealSense camera issue. There is just one know issue around using Hyper V and vswitches:

Here’s what’s fixed

Choosing “Reset This PC” under Settings > Update & Security > Recovery should now work as expected.

You should no longer see a WSClient.dll error dialog after logging in.

The front-facing camera should be usable again on PCs with Intel RealSense cameras and you should be able to use Windows Hello again.

We fixed an issue where incorrect storage capacity was provided for the system volume (the hard drive in which Windows is installed on) under Settings > System > Storage.

Known issues

We have only one known issue for this build. If you’re using Hyper-V and upgrade to this build with more than one vswitch or have multiple virtual networking adapters (including legacy), you may lose networking connectivity after upgrade. To get network connectivity back, there are two workarounds available:

Remove all the virtual network adapters connected to the vswitch, delete the vswitch and recreate it, then reconnect their virtual NIC to the new vswitch.

Admin command prompt, do “netcfg -d” will wipe-out all the vswitch settings so that you can start from scratch.

The build is available now and look out for my hands on video soon.
