Microsoft has just released its latest preview build of the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update which includes a host of new features including big changes to Edge. However, one of the biggest changes coming to this latest delevopers version is the new green screen of death.
Until now, whenever Windows 10 went into meltdown, users would be faced with a terminal blue screen. Microsoft says it’s changed things to green in an effort to more easily distinguish Windows Insider reports vs the reports of those on production builds.
But don’t expect to see your Windows powered PC turning green anytime soon as the Redmond company states in its notes that, “Released versions of Windows 10 will continue to have the classic blue colour, including the final release of the Windows 10 Creators Update.”
Along with a green screen of death there’s plenty of other new features launching in the Creators Update. Microsoft’s Edge browser gets some big updates focused on making it easier than ever to keep track of your tabs and pick up where you left off.
These Edge improvements include:
Tab preview bar: Tab preview bar allows you to easily glance at a visual preview of every tab you have open without leaving your page. You can scroll through the list with touch,
Flash Click-to-Run: Microsoft Edge will now block untrusted Flash content by default until the user explicitly chooses to play it.
This means better security, stability, and performance for you, while preserving the option to run Flash when you choose.
Web Payments: Microsoft Edge now has preview support for the new Payment Request API, which allows sites to make checkout easier using the payment and shipping preferences stored in your Microsoft Wallet.
