#Windows10 #Microsoft – Windows 10 build 14946 for PC and Mobile now available in the Fast ring – here’s what’s new : If you’re a Windows Insider on the Fast ring, it’s that time again, as Microsoft has released Windows 10 build 14946 for PC and Mobile. This week’s build comes six days after 14942, which was a rare Friday release.
Unlike some of the earlier builds that we’ve seen from the Development Branch, 14946 contains a number of new features. It’s mostly minor stuff, and sadly, today’s build doesn’t contain most of the Continuum features that were announced at Ignite. It does, however, contain the ability to put your phone to sleep and continue to use the feature.
Here’s what’s new:
Customizing your precision touchpad experience (PC): Last week, we announced that we’d been working on refining your touchpad experience. This week, we’re taking that one step further. When you go into Settings > Devices > Touchpad, you will now find a section called “Other gestures”.
In this section, you now have basic customization options for your three and four finger gestures. For taps, you can select between Cortana, Action Center, play/pause or middle mouse button, and for left/right swipes, you can select between switching apps or switching virtual desktops. Try it out and let us know what you think!
However, we know that some of our Insiders prefer even more control over their experience, so for those Insiders (and power users) we have added a new Advanced Gestures Configuration page. The page can be accessed via a link at the bottom of Touchpad settings page.
