Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10041 now available

Microsoft has released Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10041. The company has announced that the Build 10041 will be available for preview users.


“We’re rolling out Build 10041 for PCs to the Fast ring. Like all of the previous preview builds this one comes with a collection of new functionality and bug fixes. The build will only be available through Windows Update for systems already running a previous Windows 10 build. We still intend to release ISOs for builds that go to the Slow ring, but Fast ring builds will be direct downloads only.”

posted Microsoft on a blog.

The update to the Windows 10 Technical preview includes a couple of minor updates and some design tweaks. First up, there is a new transparent look to the Start Menu and the background has also received a faded look. The All Apps list is easier to use for tablet owners and comes with a larger button. Moving on, the virtual desktop has been improved as you can now drag and a window to the “+” icon to both create a Virtual Desktop and move the window to it in single step. A filtered Alt+Tab has been added so you only see the windows on the given Virtual Desktop.

Microsoft’s virtual assistant is now live for China, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain besides the US. Other additions include an improved network access menu and a new lock-screen. Finally, there are a number of enhancements to the Photo app that now shows images from OneDrive in the Live Tile image rotation. Additionally, Photos now supports RAW image files from many camera models.
