win10_windows_startscreen1_webMicrosoft has rolled out its latest build of Windows 10 to members of the Windows Insider Program’s “Fast ring” today through Windows Update.

The update brings new Mail and Calendar apps to Windows 10, which include the ability to set up Swipe Gestures in mail that will perform actions like deleting or flagging a message when users swipe on them. Users can also set up as many Virtual Desktops as they want, thanks to the revised software.

Tablets also got new Continuum features with the update. When someone removes a keyboard from their tablet, the Start Button, Cortana and Task View button all grow in size to make them easier to tap. Those tablets with screens under 10 inches will now boot into a tablet-optimized experience by default, too.

As with all of these Windows 10 updates, it’s worth remembering that this is pre-release software, that will often come with bugs that disrupt a user’s daily workflow. Case in point: a bug in the current update can sometimes prevent users from launching Win32 apps from the Start Menu. People who need their PCs to get work done on a daily basis should probably stay away.
