Leaked Windows 10 Build Features Updated Icons

/ 2 years ago

We all know that Windows 8.1 was not exactly the most acclaimed version of Windows, which is why Microsoft is working hard to make sure that Windows 10 does not receive the same reviews. Until the OS is released officially, users can test it out by installing Preview builds, which are updated regularly as Microsoft fixes bugs, modifies looks and implements new features. Even though we’re at build 10122 officially, the upcoming build 10125 has leaked online, and it shows that Windows 10 will feature an upgraded set of icons that go better with its overall flat design.

Apart from the new icons, the leaked build also comes with an upgraded version of the Edge browser. The upgrade fixes a bug that prevented the browser to display full-screen content correctly, and it also includes an updated setting page that now boasts two panes. Since we’re getting closer and closer to the official release of the OS, the leaked version probably includes all final Windows 10 features. Microsoft can now focus on fixing various bugs and other issues in order to make sure that the end product ends up as polished as possible.
