The Creators Update is something every Windows enthusiast is waiting for since there are a lot of new featured promised for the update. The Creators Update is also the next major patch coming to the OS, so Microsoft has to bring out its big guns. As with most of their software, before it goes live, it has to pass through the Fast Ring where Windows Insiders test the beta builds. Last week, the PC build was not released due to a persistent bug but now it’s back on track with build number 14986.

Some of the new features added in the build emphasize the ways in which people can use Cortana, the digital voice assistant. Now, you can have Cortana perform tasks through vocal commands. Although limited in functionality at the moment, it’s still cool to vocally shut down or restart your computer. There is also a fullscreen mode for Cortana, where new options are available.

With the new Read & Write, Ebates and TrueKey extensions, Microsoft Edge is also getting some love this update. These will improve the functionality of the Narrator feature as well as the Windows Defender tool while enhancing the registry editor with new shortcuts for keyboards.

The new update not only improves functionality and features available in Windows but also gives users various new options regarding future update releases. According to Microsoft, users will be able to take the reins of the update process. This means that when a new update is available, users will be granted options regarding when to actually install these updates as well as what to delete prior to the installation when dealing with a dull hard drive.

If the new update says anything, it’s that it can be quite rewarding to be a Windows Insider. On top of these features and more, Windows also gets a long series of bugs and errors fixed.
