Microsoft is rolling out Windows 10 Insider Preview builds on a weekly basis now. Last week’s release, Build 14942, introduced several big new features, including the ability to collapse the Apps list in the Start menu, and expanding the default range of After Hours from 12 hours to 18.
Today’s update, Build 14946 for both PC and Mobile, is similarly packed with changes, improvements, and new features.
The previous build introduced enhancements to gesture and click detection on precision trackpads, making it much more reliable, as well as algorithm changes to reduce unintended zooming while panning. In the latest build the software giant takes things a step further.
If you go into Settings > Devices > Touchpad, you will now find a section called "Other gestures" which offers basic customization options for three and four finger gestures.
There’s also a new Advanced Gestures Configuration page that you can access at the bottom of Touchpad settings screen.
The Wi-Fi Settings page on both PC and Mobile has been updated in this build, with a new setting which will let you specify when to turn Wi-Fi back on after disabling it. Go to Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi, turn off Wi-Fi, and specify the time under "Turn Wi-Fi back on". It’s set to "Manually" by default.
There are quite a few changes for Mobile in this new build including separate screen time-out settings when using Continuum for Phone (you can turn off whichever screen you are not using when in Continuum), the option to prevent autocorrection ("which is ducking brilliant!") and the option to remove any accidentally added words from the user dictionary.
Scheduled backups on Mobile have been changed to once a week in this build.
