Windows 10 build 10122: Hands-on with the Start menu, Settings, apps, and new features (video)

Here is what's new in Windows 10 build 10122.

Microsoft recently rolled out a new preview of Windows 10 (build 10122), but because of a significant bug that causes Microsoft Edge to crash frequently on systems using AMD graphics, the company opted to release the new build via the Fast ring of updates. However, build 10122 includes a number of improvements on the Start menu, Continuum, Microsoft’s new Edge web browser, which the company still refers it as “Project Spartan”, and the new preview also includes a new Insider Hub app.
