A leaked Windows 10 Insider Preview build has been making the rounds online for a few weeks now giving us a glimpse of some of the new features that the company will introduce with the Windows 10 Creators Update later this year. The company today announced the release of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 1500 to members of the Windows Insiders program and confirmed some of the new features that the next major update will bring.
We had previously reported that the leaked build included a blue light reduction feature that Microsoft has indeed confirmed that today. Windows is now able to automatically lower the amount of blue light emitted by the PC at night. This functionality can be configured from the Settings app.
It has also confirmed that Microsoft Edge will now block untrusted Flash content by default until the user explicitly chooses to play it. This is going to result in better security, performance, and stability for users while still providing them with the option to run Flash content.
The Windows 10 Creators Update will also enable users to group their Start tiles into folders. All they need to do is drag and drop a tile on top of another tile in Start to create a folder.
Additional improvements have been made to the Edge browser, Cortana, native applications, and more. The full list of improvements is up on Microsoft’s blog.
