Windows 10 build 10123 includes tweaks on Microsoft Edge and Cortana

Windows 10 build 10123 shows the return of "Backup and Restore" feature, Microsoft Edge bumps version number, and Cortana gets a few new UI changes.

New screenshots leak from Windows 10 build 10123 offer an early look of changes Microsoft is working on for its next version of Windows coming later this summer. The new screenshots have been published by the Chinese website ITHome, who were able to download and play with a copy of Windows 10 build 10123.

Although, the software giant is now focus on completing Windows 10, instead of adding more features, build 10123 shows a number of improvements and changes.

Microsoft Edge jumps from version 12 to 13. Now the version number is 13.10123.0.0 and Microsoft still referring the browser as “Project Spartan”.

The browser now includes support for inPrivate browsing mode, which is an expected feature, as virtually every web browser software provides the same functionality.

Edge now has another feature to save passwords and forms.

There is also new options to configure the “new tab”. Now users can configure to start a new tab with “Top sites and suggested content”, “Top sites”, or “A blank page”.

In Windows 10 build 10123, the Chinese version of Cortana shows some UI improvements. As we have seen before, now we see that Cortana includes a dark theme, but results are shown in a white canvas. And now there is also a feedback button in the left pane.

Finally, it seems that Microsoft is working on bringing back the “Backup and Restore” feature found in Windows 7, even though since Windows 8, we have the “System image backup” feature, which is very similar.

There are a few other changes in build 10123, but because the version of Windows 10 is in Chinese, it’s hard to translate. However, you can get more information by visiting the source link below (ITHome).
