Hands on with Windows 10 build 10120

This summer, Microsoft will release a new version of its operating system, Windows 10. The OS, which we have been covering diligently since last July, is quickly coming together and now I have been able to obtain the latest version to make its way outside the walls of Redmond, build 10120.

At this point in the development cycle of Windows 10, its more about bug-fixing than adding new features. So it should not come as a huge surprise that there are not any unannounced major updates with this release.

Out of the box, Cortana had a dark theme; there is now a dedicated back button in the Settings app, but the customization options for the Start menu are still grayed out. The color theme is now also being applied to the network popup box as well, previously it was stuck in the dark theme.

Spartan, which is still using the old icon and old name, has an updated default landing page too. The browser is also a bit more dev friendly as well by adding "Inspect Element" and "View Source" to the context menu.

The last build Microsoft released to Insiders occurred at Build 2015 and with the company promising to release updates at a faster cadence, it shouldn't be too much longer for a new desktop version to drop.

As I dig around and look for more updates, more images will be added to the gallery. If you have any questions about this build, let me know in the comments below, or you can find me on Twitter here.
