Windows 10 Build 10051: Project Spartan gets a Download Manager


Windows 10 Build 10051 was leaked onto the internet yesterday. The leaked build packs two new major improvements, a new Mail and Calendar app. However,  the build also includes some minor additions, such as the new, unusable Microsoft Family app.

Project Spartan has also picked up two new improvements. On Build 10051, Spartan gets the Download manager. Previously on Build 10049, the feature was missing, however, as it looks like, Microsoft has added it with Build 10051. The Download manager is pretty simple: you can remove a particular download from the manager, or clear all – it also shows the live progress of a download as you’d expect.

Microsoft has also added a new option to Spartan which allows users to open a web page in Internet Explorer, which may come in handy when a web page doesn’t work on Spartan.

For those of you who missed it, Windows 10 Build 10051 isn’t an official release – it has been leaked yesterday and you can find more info here.
