The latest update – Preview Build 21364 of Windows 10 introduced some new features, improvements, and bug fixes. The update is already available to Windows insiders in the Dev Channel.
Windows 10 Insider Preview Build Features
As expected, the new update added some excellent features to the operating system. Below, we have listed some of the awesome features of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21364. Let’s check out.
Run Linux GUI Applications directly
With this build, users can run the Linux applications directly on the operating system using the first preview of GUI app support. This means that you can run your favorite GUI editors, Linux tools, and applications to build and run your Linux apps.
Microsoft Edge Process Classification
Previously, to check Microsoft Edge’s processes, you need to open the Task manager of the web browser. However, the build allows users to expand the main Microsoft Edge process right from the Windows task manager. You can check Microsoft Edge’s active processes from the system task manager itself.
The Eco Mode is another experimental feature seen on Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21364. This task manager feature provides users an option to throttle process resources. If any app is consuming high resources, you can throttle the process with the new Eco mode.
Windows 10 Insider Preview Bild 21364 also introduced a new touch keyboard layout for Japanese users. The new keyboard replicates the keyboard’s design used in Japan’s Kiosks devices.
Well, with build 21364, users can enable or disable Night Light manually. You can choose the Settings apps or the Action center to enable/disable the Night light. The change here is that now the Night Light will turn on immediately rather than going through the slow transition.
