Windows 10 Insiders get updated menus and feedback sharing

Microsoft releases Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10532

Members of the Windows Insider programme can now download Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10532, the second technical preview of an upcoming Windows 10 update since the operating system launched in July.

The build was pushed through on the Insider programme’s Fast Ring, and includes two features that Microsoft will be looking to add to Windows 10 proper in the coming weeks.

The first is a series of redesigned context menus. In addition to being made slightly larger, certain menus have been recoloured to reflect the “light and dark theming” of Windows 10. The main Taskbar’s context menu, for instance, is shaded dark grey, unlike the desktop’s context menu which remains white.

The second addition allows users to share feedback on Windows 10 via email, Twitter and OneNote from the Feedback app itself. The charm will also produce a direct link to a feedback ticket, so it can be posted to other sites and forums more easily.

Microsoft intends this feature to increase the visibility of feedback, complaints and suggestions, leading to greater discussion among Windows Insiders and helping the firm’s engineers to determine which problems are most important.

Gabe Aul, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Windows and Devices Group, confirmed that this Feedback functionality will be added to the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview as well. However, a suitable build candidate has not been found since Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 10512 was released on the Fast Ring earlier this month.

“We have found and fixed a few issues that would be a blocker for some Insiders in recent builds in our internal rings, so we haven’t had one we felt was ready to go out to you since 10512,” said Aul.

“We have some good candidates coming through with those fixes, so after we run them for a while and ensure they are ready for you we’ll get them out.”

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10532 follows less than two weeks after the release of Build 10525. Microsoft appears to be sticking to its oft-mentioned plan of regularly adding new features to Windows 10 over its lifetime, rather than saving such features for a brand new OS in the future.
