Microsoft begins rolling out Windows 10 build 10130 via the Fast ring of updates. The announcement was made by Gabriel Aul, head of the Windows Insider program at Microsoft, who also notes that Windows 10 build 10130 includes a number of tuning, tweaking, and overall the operating system is more polish and more stable — keep in mind that moving forward we’re going to see less big features changes.

As we have previously seen in one of the leaked versions of the operating system, Windows 10 build 10130 includes a new set of icons, which users will notice more with File Explorer. There is also new Taskbar animation for actions, such as moving files, downloads, and more.

There are various improvements around the Start menu, based on feedbacks the Action Center now has refined borders, Jump Lists gets updated with a new modern design, and Continuum now brings back the swipe gesture to open the app commands just like Windows 8.1.

In addition, Microsoft Edge includes the ability to pin the Cortana page, Favorites pane, Reading list pane, and other panes. There is also new advanced print options, the address bar badges have been updated, Reading view improved to support different content, and now users can watch videos in full screen mode.

Based on feedback, the Taskbar in Virtual Desktops will now be filtered by default to show only windows on the current desktop.

Also, Cortana gets a keyboard shortcut: Windows + C.

The software maker is also naming the Windows 10 feature for printing PDF “Microsoft Print to PDF”, and now you can play videos in the Movies & TV app in full screen.

Microsoft also repeats that Windows 10 build 10122 won’t make it to the Fast ring of updates, because of a bug affecting upgrades in Windows 7 and Windows 8. However, Windows 10 build 10130 is likely to show up later in the Slow ring, which also means that could be seeing ISO files download for this build.

Windows 10 build 10130 will install automatically, if you’re running an official build of Windows 10, but you can always update manually by going to the Windows Update settings in the Settings app. Also make sure you are in the Fast ring.
