Windows 10 Technical Preview Gets Its First Major Update

Already trying out the Technical Preview for Windows 10? Microsoft has just pushed out a major update that adds some new features — but also breaks some stuff. Remember, it’s a beta!

Nifty new features in Build 9860 (to give it its formal name) include a new shortcut key for moving apps between monitors: Win+Shift+left or right arrow, and notifications popping up in a PC version of the Action Center that already exists on Windows Phone devices. Known annoyances include disappearing elements on the Start menu and a fiddlier experience for connecting to Wi-Fi.

The new build will automatically download as part of Windows Update; you can access it faster by going to PC Settings, then Update and recovery, then Preview builds to check for and download the new version.

We’re rolling out our first new build to the Windows Insider Program [Blogging Windows]
