Windows 10 is set to launch on July 29th and Microsoft continues to improve stability and polish and refine the new UI. It’s been several weeks since we’ve seen an official new build, and here’s a look at what’s new.

Windows 10 Build 10158
Microsoft exec Gabe Aul announce this latest build today on the Blogging Windows site. At this point all of the major new features have been added, and from now until launch day, Windows Insiders will see stability and UI improvements as well as minor tweaks.
For example, in this build, like Windows 10 mobile build 10136, Microsoft’s new browser is branded as Microsoft Edge and no longer Project Spartan. It has received several new features, too.
Improvements like enabling a Home button, importing bookmarks from other browsers to Edge, new customization for the New Tab page, a dark theme (which was a top request), and a lot more.
Other changes to note are that Cortana is in its final stage and integrates with Office 365. The Photos app has been updated with helpful new features. And if you’re a fan of the Snipping Tool (remember that?), it got a five second delay feature.
