Windows 10 Preview build 15002 brings New Features & Updates to Fast Ring Insiders

by Ashish


Finally after a long wait we have a new build for those who are on Fast Ring on Windows 10 PC. Build 15002 brings a ton of update.

Microsoft Edge Updates

Apart from these new features, Microsoft has put in a bit of effort to improve the stability, and responsiveness of the browser. Many a time, I have seen Edge crashing for no reasons, and ask me to start fresh which is annoying. This update should make things better.

Next, lets take a look at the Web Payments. Microsoft announced Payment Request API which allows checkout much faster if you use Microsoft Wallet. The vendor will pickup rest of the details from your wallet, and get things done quicker.

Start and Shell Improvements

New Windows Share experience

Capture a region of your screen: 

This is a huge update for those, like me,  who take screenshots on daily basis. Now you can choose to take screenshot of part of screen using the hotkey Win + Shift + S. However it will be only copied into clipboard, and you will have to open an editing tool to paste, and finalise your screenshot.


Improved high-DPI support for desktop apps:

If your graphics all of a sudden starts looking better, say thanks to improved high-DPI support for desktop apps. This can also be enabled for other apps, but you will need to do it manually.

Windows Ink Improvements


More Cortana improvements

Accessibility Improvements

Cortana will be available during Setup Process of Windows 10 helping people who need accessibility during that time. This is still work in progress.

A more inclusive experience out of the box

Braille support in Windows will start appearing from this builds, and you will find a new button that offers the ability to download support for braille via Settings > Ease of Access > Narrator. While this button is present, the feature doesn’t work yet so hold off on giving it a try for now. We’ll let you know in a future post when braille can be used.

Windows Defender Improvements

Refresh Windows on-demand in Windows Defender.

Defender has new option which allows you to Refresh Windows when you want it. This is useful when your PC is slow, and crashing. Do note that this option starts fresh by reinstalling, and updating Windows. In simple words, all your personal files, and windows settings will be gone.

Settings Improvements


BSOD is now GSOD

For Insiders, you will now get Green Background instead of Blue when you get the screen of death.

More Options to Update your Windows 10.
