Hands on with Windows 10 build 15002 showcasing new features and improvements
Windows 10 Build 15002 is the first official Windows Insider release for 2017 and it doesn't disappoint. With new features showing up all over the place, build 15002 gives us our first proper look at what the Creators Update will include when it rolls out in a few months. Not only that, but considering this build has a number of new features, there are several new bugs to take not of as well.
Because of that, we thought it'd be a good idea to compile a walkthrough video showcasing all the noteworthy changes in action so you don't have to go through the hassle of installing this build yourself. This build includes improvements to Start, Edge, Settings, Personalization and a whole lot more.
There's much more to this build that we'll be covering in-depth shortly, so stay tuned to Windows Central for that. In the meantime, if there's any smaller changes you've noticed and you want to share them with us, let us know in the comments and we'll include them in our next walkthrough video!

- in the volume control on the taskbar, there is a new "spatial sound" option.
- selecting playback devices, then configure, spatial audio is now an option (at least for headphones and built in speakers)
- Windows Holographic runs further and I get a prompt to make sure I have an HMD connected. Connect a HoloLens via USB does nothing to change this (wouldn't expect it to since HL is stand alone). It no longer faults the USB as not being 3.0 (it is) and takes me to a scene with floating diamonds and landscape/stairs. *may have been like this in the prior build but I just noticed Tested on Surface Pro 4 i7. Would like to test Oculus Rift to see if it takes me into Holographic Shell but only my desktop runs VR and I won't risk insider build.
Lastly switching folder sections to folder tiles would allow more degrees of freedom to organize live tiles the way we want on a larger canvas in tablet mode. This would ultimately complement the one core experience with the mobile start screen. It would be great to see this development come to fruition and feel like a more well rounded experience regardless of which windows device one uses.
yet only present that to me it freezes at 16%, however in this case the screen is green without the name of the file that caused the problem ... Better describe the steps to download the update has some problems because download an update package from 2.2GB in just about a minute and in fact if you go in
Folder Software Distribution Download the ESD file from the build 2.2GB it is not present then makes a feint pre-installation and then again this round to the real package download
at this point ends the download and commenced drawing the pre-installation of update always with Windows 10 operational and active and I assume that has completed asks me why
restart your PC, after the command to restart the PC, and part of the update configuration that to go from 0 to 100% puts us almost 20 minutes of shots
very substantial load (from 9% to 32%) then you restart the computer and install the part where it warns you that your PC can be restarted REPEATEDLY, reaches up to 16%
(For some even to 22%) you lock the screen and then exit the screen, however, green BSOD with error DPC whatch DOG VIOLATION and then restores the previous version I currently have Windows 10 14393,594 build on an x86 machine and the thing that makes me think it's just a problem
the update package that Microsoft provides is the fact that all updates from 14393 to 14393,594 are
installed correctly from the PC without the slightest problem
