Microsoft today announced the release of new Windows 10 builds for PC and mobile for people participating in the fast ring of the Windows Insider Program.
On PC, people using the Edge browser will have a new keyboard shortcut to use: Control + O. That will move the focus to the Windows 10 browser’s address bar, Dona Sarkar, a software engineer in Microsoft’s Windows and Devices Group, wrote in a blog post.
And there are new keyboard shortcuts for the Narrator screen-reading application. “We have updated Narrator Scan mode for table navigation to now support CTRL + ALT + HOME to go to the beginning of the table [and] CTRL + ALT + END to go to the end of the table,” Sarkar wrote.
There’s no longer a big space between the address bar and web content in Edge after the address bar pops back up to the top of the Edge window when you open a new tab. And the Sketchpad and Screen Sketch apps will no longer crash when you try to change the ink color twice consecutively and the ruler is visible, Sarkar wrote.
Cortana’s text-to-speech (TTS) functionality isn’t working in this build. Certain apps including Yahoo Mail, Google, and Skype Translator will crash in it, and there’s once again a bug causing Adobe Acrobat Reader to crash at launch, Sarkar wrote. The issue with kernel debugging over 1394 from build 14901 is still present. And there are issues with Settings — it may crash “when navigating to different settings pages,” Sarkar wrote.
See Sarkar’s full blog post for feature updates and bugs in the new Windows 10 Mobile build.
