Microsoft Drops Huge Windows 10 Preview Build 15002 Ahead Of Creator’s Update

Insiders are getting a big taste of what is coming to Windows 10 in the latest preview, which includes a handful of all-new features such as custom Start menu folders, low-blue-light mode, and high-DPI improvements for desktop apps. Even the new Green Screen of Death makes its debut here.

Windows 10's Creators Update is due early this year, and Microsoft served up what you might call a hearty appetizer Monday morning: its massive Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15002, with so many improvements that we’ve broken out the back-end ones, which include pauseable updates, app throttling and even a new Green Screen of Death, into a separate article. Build 15002 is being released for the PC only, as part of the Fast Ring of Insider builds. Be aware of a few bugs: Miracast connections won’t work, and the Netflix app probably won’t render video (instead, use Edge).
