Windows 10 Build 10130 Visual Tour of New Features

Microsoft launched its latest build of Windows 10, build 10130 and is starting to take as the final shipping date looms. Here’s a look at what’s new.

Microsoft last week launched its latest build of Windows 10 to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring. Here’s a look at what’s new and what to expect as the final shipping date looms.

Cortana has an easier walk-through type setup wizard, and it includes keyboard shortcuts. For example, you can use Windows Key+C to launch speech recognition for questions, reminders…etc.


Unlike the one-time-only 10-second short video showing you how to use Windows 8, Windows 10 has a full Getting Started app that will help you with new features like Cortana, Action Center, and other new features.


One of the UI changes that will make many users happy is the toned-down icons before they were very bright and cartoon-like.


The Jump Lists design has been refined to match the rest of the UI for Start and Taskbar.


Microsoft’s new browser, Microsoft Edge, continues to be improved. It now allows you to pin the Cortana, Favorites, and Reading list panes.


In this build, you can customize the Start experience in Settings > Personalization > Start. Then you can toggle different options on and customize it how you like.


The Albums feature in Photos is coming along nicely, and albums from photos you upload are automatically created for you.


Microsoft’s Universal Apps continue to evolve and improve. For instance, here is a look at the Weather app’s design which is really quite nice.

Windows 10 Build 10130

According to Gabe Aul, Windows 10 builds from this point and will mostly contain minor tweaks and not any major features. In his blog post about this build, Gabe states, “As I mentioned with the last build [10122], from here onward, you are going to see a lot of tuning, tweaking, stabilizing, and polishing which means fewer big feature changes from build to build.”

So if you’re testing things out, make sure to send Microsoft your feedback via the Microsoft feedback app. It looks like the OS is on the home stretch. And it should be ready to roll by the rumored late July date.

If you’re a Windows Insider and testing out Windows 10, make sure to check out the Windows 10 Forums for further discussion as the journey continues.

    Hi Brian.
    Downloaded and installed build 130. It took a while, but it went well. The only problem I had was I was unable to connect to my wifi after the install completed. I did 2 resets on my router/modem and everything works great know.
    I only have one complaint. That the number of steps it takes to get to the apps drop down menu. We should be able to just click and they come up without going through 3 steps. The same with closing down th system, only that takes an additional step.
    Otherwise I’m very please with the latest update and feel certain Microsoft will be picking up a lot of new users if they give it a try.

    Hi Folks, is anybody getting an error message with Build 10130, when shutting down the computer?

    Both my desktop and laptop get the following error message every time I shut down:

    “The instruction at 0x00007FFD61DCCC60 referenced memory at 0x000000000000000. The memory could not be read. Click OK to terminate the program”

    This stops the shut down.

      Yes I get the same message, but I just ignore it. I figure Microsoft will correct it on the next update.
      It really doesn’t affect my computer.

    I really think OneDrive should be an option. I have 2 desktops with multiple drives and several externals sitting on the shelf. I’m capable of looking after my machine.
    I won’t use OneDrive and don’t want it available to anyone else using one of my machines. It needs to be an option.

    It also just appears to be an update of 8.1 with a lot of free games thrown in to attract people. I’m not happy with it but unless I want to go Apple, I have no choice as Microsoft seems determined to have one program for all platforms. Guess they never heard that you can’t please all the people all the time.
