Microsoft today released Windows 10 Build 10565 to Insiders on the fast ring. As usual, the latest build of Windows 10 includes a handful of new improvements and a couple of new features. With the latest build of Windows 10, Microsoft has added a couple of new improvements for Edge which are quite nice. Build 10565 brings a new feature called “tab previews” which will allow users to hover over their opened tabs and get a preview of what’s on those websites, which is an interesting feature that I probably won’t be using — nonetheless, if you have been waiting for tab previews on Edge, they are finally here and you can check it out on build 10565.

Build 10565 also introduces a much-requested feature for the Developer Tools aka F12 tools. With the latest build, Microsoft has added the ability to dock the developer tools which is a major feature that was missing on Edge in the previous builds of Windows 10. However, on build 10565, developers can finally dock the developer tools which should be much appreciated by most developers.

Build 10565 also brings another much-requested feature: the ability to drag and drop files into sites. This is a feature that I personally use on Google Chrome everyday, and I am glad that it is now available on Microsoft Edge, too. For those who don’t know, the drag and drop feature on Edge will basically allow you to drag a file and drop it into any website.

As you may expect, the latest build of Windows 10 should also include some under the hoods improvements. It is worth noting that the latest build also introduces the ability to sync favorites and reading lists, which was also a much-requested feature by users.

It seems like Microsoft is now focusing on the feedback from Windows Insiders. For example, the latest build adds a number of new features which Windows Insiders have been requesting for a little while now. Nonetheless, if you use Microsoft Edge, tell us what you think of the new features for the browser in the comment section below.
