Windows 10 build 10537 features and changes

Windows 10 build 10537: Hands-on with animations, new privacy settings, Edge changes (video)

Windows 10 build 10537 for PCs recently leaked online and today we have a first look at some of the new changes Microsoft is working on for Threshold 2.

While Insiders continue to wait for Microsoft to deliver a new preview, Windows 10 build 10537 has leaked onto the web unveiling a number of changes and improvements, which company is working on for Windows 10 Threshold 2 and should be arriving later in November.

The new build includes changes on Store apps, now apps have the same open and close animations you will find on traditional desktops applications.

The software giant continues to implements new icons throughout the operating system and now you’ll see new icons on Control Panel, Device Manager, and other areas.

In Windows 10 build 10532, Microsoft noted that is working on improving the inconsistency with the context menus. While Insiders have seen changes in latest preview, build 10357 shows that context menus now drop the white background in favor of light-gray color that integrates much better with the Windows 10 dark theme.

The Settings app also shows two new Privacy options that will allow users to control how apps access call history and emails on the operating system.

Finally, Microsoft Edge get bumped to version 21.10537, users will also find easy access to proxy settings, there is a new options to hide IP address when using WebRTC, and more.

For your enjoyment, I added a new video to my YouTube channel, which is also embedded in this article, highlighting all the new changes in Windows 10 build 10537.

As always, this is an unofficial release of Windows 10, as such it’s not recommended to download and install the build, because it’s not supported by Microsoft and it might contain unexpected bugs.
