As part of the 19H2 development, Microsoft is now rolling out build 18362.10013 for devices running build 18362.10006, and 18362.10012 for devices running build 18362.10005. This is release number four and five that the company is making available to testers, and these are minor updates with several new features.

According to the software giant, Windows 10 build 18362.10012 and build 18362.10013 include the same features and changes, but the only difference is that build 18362.10012 includes the features turned off by default.

If you’re running build 18362.10013, this new flight introduces the ability to create calendar events from the taskbar without the need to open the Calendar app. The Start menu left pane will expand automatically to reveal the name of each option.

In the “Notifications & actions” page there’s a new setting to disable sound for all notifications, and the page will now default to sorting notification senders by most recently shown notification, rather than sender name.

In addition, the page to configure notifications for apps now includes visual changes to help you understand the “banner” and “Action Center” settings.

In Action Center, Windows 10 now shows the options to configure and turn off notifications from an app and website right on the notification, both as a banner and in Action Center.

You’ll now find a new “Manage notifications” button to the top of Action Center that launches the main “Notifications & actions” Settings page.

Also, Windows 10 is introducing a new processor rotation policy that distributes work more fairly among these favored cores (logical processors of the highest available scheduling class).
