We've been promised lots of new features in Windows 10, but most of those won't be in the test release that is being rolled out for Technical Preview testers this week. Here's what you will get in the January build (9926 if you're keeping count).
Microsoft outlined the features which will be included in Build 9926, which is being rolled out to everyone in the Technical Preview scheme, in a blog post. It does include Cortana on the desktop, but this will only work if you set your language to US English. Also on offer: the full-screen Start menu for mobile and tablet users, and the updated Settings app which incorporates more of a Control Panel feel. There's also a preview of the new-look Windows store. Check the announcement post for the full list of features in the latest build.
