After back to back 2 leaked build during holidays now finally Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15002. Windows Insider Program was on break during the Christmas and now it appears that folks over Redmond are back to work.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15002 have tons of new features and improvements over the last public preview build which was 14986. As we reveal last year that the upcoming Windows Insider Build will have lots of new features and improvements in Edge and this is the build which I was talking about. With build 15002 Microsoft Edge gets Tab preview bar, it allows you to easily glance at a visual preview of every tab you have open without leaving your page. You can scroll through the list with touch, mouse wheel, or a touchpad. In addition you can now also put all the tab aside by just one click and reopen all of them by same. For better security, stability, and performance Microsoft Edge will now block un-trusted Flash content by default until the user explicitly chooses to play it.


Moving on! Folders in Start menu! yes! Build 15002 introduced folders in start menu. Just like Mobile device to create folder drag and drop a tile on top of another tile and done. They also redesigned the Windows sharing experience. The new Windows Share experience will pop-up the new share flyout within the app you are sharing from and give you a list of applications you can share to. The screenshot feature finally arrive in Windows 10! No I mean that capture region of screen, that OneNote feature. You can use Win + Shift + S without opening OneNote.

In addition Windows Ink and personal digital assistant Cortan also improved. Settings app gets new UI. pages now contain additional information on providing links to support, feedback, and related settings if available. Windows can now automatically lower the amount of blue light emitted from your PC at night thanks to Lower Blue Light feature. Talking about customization they added recent color block and they finally added support for the Windows Themes. That BSOD now became GSOD.
