Microsoft has rolled out its new Windows 10 Redstone build 14291 for PC and mobile Insiders on Fast Ring. The new build comes with Microsoft Edge extensions, which was demanded by Windows Insiders.
Following the roll-out of Windows 10 Mobile to a few older generation smartphones running the 8.1 operating system, Microsoft released its latest Redstone build for Fast Ringers, with a few app updates.
Corporate vice president at Microsoft, Gabe Aul, said in a company blog, "Today we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14291 for both PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. There are some very cool new things in this build, including one of the top requested features by Windows Insiders – extensions for Microsoft Edge!"
The new Windows 10 build comes with added features like an updated maps app, a new Japanese one-handed kana touch keyboard and updated alarm and clock app for Windows mobile.
Microsoft Edge extensions are currently available only for PC. Among the ones that have been rolled out are Microsoft Translator, Mouse Gestures and Reddit Enhancement Suite. The tech giant said that more extensions are "on the way" and should be rolled out to Insiders soon.
Fast Ringers who have installed Redstone 14291 can try out the Edge extensions by clicking on the "More" option on the top right corner in Microsoft Edge and proceed to "Get Extensions". With Edge, users can store their most used websites and apps in one place. Users can also pin tabs by right-clicking on any given tab and select the "Pin tab" option.
Microsoft has designed the feature such that pinned tabs are seen first on the row of tabs and the website's "favicon" is also displayed. Users also need not worry about accidentally closing a pinned tab as they do not have a close button. Additionally, tabs open up automatically upon exiting and re-opening Microsoft Edge.
The new Windows 10 build is currently only available to developers in Fast Ring. Microsoft has not confirmed the date when it will be rolled out to all Windows users.
