Microsoft releases new Windows 10 preview for PCs

Microsoft releases new Windows 10 preview for PCs

Not just me, nearly every other kid of the time would have a great connection with that feature of Microsoft - The Paint.

This is one of many features that Microsoft plans on using to bind Windows 10 with Android and iOS for cross-device interoperability.

But for die-hard fans, there's reason to rejoice: sophisticated MS Paint art and memes aren't completely dead after all. The software giant has been running a bounty program since 2013, but previous awards were limited to $100,000 for "truly novel exploitation techniques".

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16251 is available to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring today. For instance, you can open a particular web page on your Android phone and continue reading it on your Windows PC. Microsoft also asks if you want to continue on PC now or later, if you choose later, the website will be kept in the "Action Center" and you can access it at your convenience. It has always been overshadowed by stalwart options like Photoshop or Gimp (if you're into open source stuff), but for the same reason we continue to get "rebooted" television and movie options from Hollywood, Paint lives.

In Windows 10 Build 16251, Cortana, Microsoft's digital assistant, is now able to turn off, restart, lock, or sign-out of Windows. Cortana will also now support voice commands like "Hey Cortana, shutdown my PC".

Saunders also took the opportunity to push Paint 3D, which came with the Windows 10 Creators Update, is also in the Windows Store and Microsoft hopes you will you use instead.

Note: This functionality is now only available in English.

One of Cortana's minor annoyances is that when she can't display the answer as a card or a short reply, she'll automatically launch an Edge webpage.

Only Android users can test this functionality out right now.

Introducing the option to link smartphones to Windows PCs is another step from Microsoft towards homogenizing the device ecosystem for the users.

After the phone is linked, users can start browsing the Web on their phones.

Now to the feature that you may not find uber-useful just yet.

Some users may see Game Mode enabled in the Game Bar by default for some of their games.

It is included as a part of Windows 10 Mobile Insider build 15235.
