Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18298 now rolling out on the fast ring

Microsoft announced a new build for Windows Insiders to test out is now available for download on the fast ring. Build 18298 is rolling out as an update for existing installations, and an ISO is ready for download should you be installing a fresh copy of Windows 10.

The aim of this build was to simplify the way Windows 10 users manage login options, including Windows Hello. Instead of heading around the Control Panel to locate different login methods, you'll be able to spot everything on one page. Microsoft also gave the File Explorer icon a little TLC.

The build also changes the way downloads are handles when browsing them in File Explorer. The downloads folder gets cluttered because you typically don't rename all the files you grab online. This means that when you check what the last download file, it often gets a little lost. Now, Windows will sort your downloads by date. Rest assured that if you already changed the sorting method, Microsoft will respect your choice and not change a thing.

Other new additions in build 18928 include the ability to unpin groups quickly from the start menu using a context menu, as well as improvements to the touch keyboard, Narrator, ease-of-access, console, and Notepad. The Windows Blog has further details, so be sure to head on over there to give the full announcement a read through.
