Microsoft has just released another new build of Windows 10 to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring. The company has been releasing a new build of Windows 10 every week for a little while now, and this week isn’t any different either. Today, the company is releasing build 14946. Don’t get too excited, though — the latest build of Windows 10 doesn’t introduce a lot of new features and it’s more of a minor update. With the latest update, Microsoft is adding the ability to customize the precision touchpad experience right from the Settings app — allowing users to set gestures to match their likings. The update also brings an improved Wi-Fi Settings page which adds a new setting called “Turn Wi-Fi back on” — this will basically enable the Wi-Fi after a set number of hours or a day.

As for Mobile devices, Microsoft has an exciting new feature in the update: the ability to use Continuum even when your phone’s display is locked. Previously, users weren’t able to use Continuum when their phone was locked — which is really quite annoying. Thankfully though, Microsoft finally lets you use Continuum without having to unlock your phone on build 14946 — and if you have a device that supports Continuum, make sure to give this feature a try.

Windows 10 Build 14946 also includes the usual bug fixes and minor improvements, but there are a couple of known issues, too. As usual, you can get the latest update from Windows Update on the Settings app.
