Microsoft today released another new build of Windows 10 to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring. The software giant today released Windows 10 Build 14965 to Insiders. As per usual, the latest build of Windows 10 does not bring any major new features but it includes some little improvements for the OS.

With the latest build of Windows 10, Microsoft is adding a new virtual touchpad feature which will basically add a virtual touchpad to their system. This feature is mostly for tablet devices connected with external monitors, allowing users to easily be able to control multiple monitors right from their tablet without having to connect a mouse.

The build also includes improvements for Sticky Notes, bringing the Insights feature to some countries outside of the United States. The update brings Insights’ Flight Detection feature to Germany, Canada, United Kingdom, India, Spain, France, and some other countries. The update brings some other features of Sticky Notes, which is detailed below:

We’ve added email & URL recognition for every locale (except Chinese (simplified or traditional), Korean, or Japanese, which we’re still working on). We’ve added phone number recognition to all English, German, Spanish, French and Italian locales. We’ve added address recognition support for English (Great Britain) and Spanish (United States). We’ve added time recognition (prompting to create a Cortana reminder) to English (Great Britain), English (Australia) and English (India). We’ve added stock recognition (for example, $MSFT) to English (Australia), English (Canada), English (India), German (Germany), Spanish (Spain), Spanish (Mexico), French (France), French (Canada), Japanese (Japan) and Portuguese (Brazil).

In addition to this, the update also includes a handful improvements for Windows Ink, adding more apps to the Recently Used feature and improved performance for the Sketchpad. Additionally, the company has also added a shortcut to the new Protector feature, which can now be controlled using your mouse’s scroll wheel.

Microsoft didn’t add any new features to Windows 10 Mobile with the latest build, and that is definitely quite interesting as the company didn’t really add anything substantial to Windows 10 Mobile recently. However, we’ll have to wait and see if that changes in the future with the upcoming Insider Preview releases.

The update, of course, includes the usual bug fixes, but that’s about it. If you are a Windows Insider in the Fast Ring, you should be able to install Windows 10 Build 14965 from Windows Update in the Settings app. The update is available for both PCs and Mobile devices, in case you’re wondering.
