After almost two months, on March 25, Microsoft finally released the Windows 10 Technical Preview (build 10041) to the Slow ring and therefore Windows Insiders can now also download the ISO files to do a clean install of the latest build.
Microsoft originally pushed Windows 10 build 10041 on March 18, after the company announced that will be making changes on how Windows Insiders get new build more frequently by relaxing the Fast ring of updates. However, this version of Windows 10 was only available through the Windows Update and for those configuring their systems to Fast lane, which meant no ISO files for download.
Many users resource to make their own installation media by creating an ISO file from the ESD file that has everything needed to install Windows 10. Now, Microsoft has just pushed a more stable version of Windows 10 Technical Preview (build 10041) and with it, users can now download the ISO files as well.
On build 10041, Microsoft is also bringing Cortana to China, UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, as such having the operating system in an ISO format will make it easier for the new regions to begin testing Microsoft’s digital assistant without the need of workaround. And the company has stated it’s not that simple to enable Cortana if you’re not using the correct supported language.
As for new features included in Windows 10 build 10041, this new release brings improvements to the Start menu, such transparency and various bug fixes; the Task View has also been improved with a new UI, the installation process has changed, modern apps have been updated, and a lot more.
