Windows 10 build 10540 screenshots leaked unveiling subtle improvements

Another build of Windows 10 filters out of Redmond showing a few subtle changes.

Windows 10 upgrade after a year

Windows 10 build 10540 for PCs has surfaced into the web unveiling a number of changes that Microsoft is working on as part of Windows 10 Threshold 2 update in November. WZor, the Russian user known to leak various information about pre-releases of Windows has published online internal documentation and screenshots of Windows 10 TH2 Release build 10540.0.150903-1605.

According to a leaked release note documentation the most noticeable change is on the Windows Store apps, which do not support Jump List.

“You can now build jump lists for Windows Store apps (immersive apps). Note that the jump list content will now also be available from tiles in Start and the All apps list, in addition to the taskbar and the Most Used list in Start.” The leaked document reveals.

Then various screenshots of build 10540 show in more details the progress of the operating system, but changes are minor. On the screenshots, we can see the Microsoft Edge browser with a new option on the “Advanced settings” page to allow users to hide their IP address over a WebRTC connections, but it is nothing new as we can see the same feature already in build 10537, which has leaked recently.

There is also a new screenshot of Control Panel, but it doesn’t reveal anything new other than the watermark indicating that the image actually comes from build 10540.

As we have previously seen, the major changes are happening on Windows 10 build 10537, which has leaked a few days back, and the leak shows more changes Windows Store apps animations, new set of desktop icons, and new improvements in the context menus.

Remember that this is an internal version of the operating system, as such it’s very unlikely Insiders will receive this build, but it wouldn’t be surprising we soon begin to see the ISO files of Windows 10 build 10540 ready for download on file sharing and torrent sites.
