Microsoft shows off Pre-Release Preview build of Windows 8

 

Microsoft has just crafted a new post that outlines the upcoming features in the Release Preview that highlight keeping your family safe while browsing the web. You can head on over to the post here to learn more about those features but one interesting point is that Microsoft posted up a video of the features in action.

The key takeaway here is that this is a post Consumer Preview build and possibly a Pre-Release Preview build or the Release Preview itself. Microsoft does not say what the build number is that they are showing off, but there are a few small changes including the Mail App icon.

The video highlights the safety features at a high level that will assist you in monitoring your family’s activities on the machine. These will be of immense help to parents who want to monitor not only what their children are viewing online but also how long they are spending on the computer.

See something new in the video that is not present in the Consumer Preview? Let us know in the comments below.
