Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316 Available with Latest Features
Two days ago, Microsoft has released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring, which brings new features that will be included in the final Windows 10 Anniversary update. Below we’ll tell you everything you need to know about this new build.
With Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316, users are able to run native Bash on Windows, but they will need to turn on Developer Mode via Settings -> Update & security -> For developers. Next, they’ll search for Windows Features and select “Turn Windows features on or off” and enable “Windows Subsystem for Linux” (Beta). Then, they’ll open Command Prompt, where they’ll type in “bash” in order to get it installed.
Microsoft has extended Cortana’s capabilities, by upgrading it to version 126.96.36.1996 and, from now on, it will inform users when their mobile devices are running out of battery; it will help users to find their phones when they forget where they put them, by ringing them; it will enable users to access navigation details across two devices by telling her “directions to < place>”.
Some users have complained that some of these features are not working correctly, which means that the next Build will come with many bug fixes.
Also, Microsoft has brought new emoji, which are more expressive, playful and have a larger size, supporting skin tone modification; there have been made some personalization improvements, allowing users to universally toggle between dark and light modes by going to Settings -> Personalization -> Colors.
Also, when dark mode is enabled, applications such as Alarms & Clock, Calculator, Google Play Store, Settings and other UWP applications are also changing into dark mode, but some applications will keep their own theme settings, even if this setting is toggled.
Users are also able to select which app notifications are more important to them in Action center, by going to Settings -> System -> Notifications & actions. Here, they will have the ability to prioritize app notifications to one of three levels: Normal, High, or Priority.
