Microsoft's Windows 10 Preview Build 17643 Released For Skip Ahead Insiders: Sets, Edge, And Data Sense Improved


Microsoft has released the Windows 10 Preview Build 17643 for Insiders who chose to receive builds from the Skip Ahead ring.

The new release is from the Redstone 5 branch, which will be the sixth feature update for Windows 10, and adds a host of improvements to Microsoft Edge, Data Sense, and Magnifier.

Moreover, Microsoft Office users will also to enjoy the new "Sets" feature that allows users to group multiple applications into a single tabbed window. The build also includes a number of other general improvements and bug fixes as well. Here are all the improvements that came with the new build.

Sets Integration In Microsoft Office

The biggest update that comes with the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17643 is that users can now use the Sets feature with Office 365. However, they have to be Office 365 subscribers who have the latest version of Office 365 Desktop apps to get their hands on this feature.

"Sets with Office 365 makes it easy to group, recall, and refresh data sources for all your projects," Microsoft said in its announcement before adding that users can now easily compile data and collate information from multiple reports and get more work done within a shorter amount of time.

Users can now drag an Edge window within an active Sets tab and also drop the same into a separate Sets window. However, users cannot drag between a Sets window and a standalone Edge window.

Microsoft Edge Improvements

Microsoft Edge's WebDriver is now a Feature on Demand (FoD), which ensures that the right version is installed for any particular device. This aims to resolve one of the biggest issues customers face with binary mismatches, as FoD automatically matches the build/branch/flavor, and the installation is now integrated into Windows.

Data Sense Improvements

The Data Usage Settings have also been updated to include support for SIM cards, which allows users to see how much data they're consuming while roaming. The roaming data usage information will be visible once users start using roaming data.

Magnifier Improvements

After receiving suggestions from users about keeping the mouse at the screen's center when the Full-Screen mode is enabled, Microsoft has finally made it happen.

Users can now enable this option from the Settings tab and track their mouse cursor easily, which is particularly helpful when the screen is magnified. The new update also added two new zoom level increments: 5 percent and 10 percent.
