Windows 10 Build 14971 comes to Windows Insiders

Microsoft has been releasing a new build of Windows 10 every week lately. And that’s not any different this week either. The company is releasing build 14971 for Windows 10 PCs with a couple of minor new features and a number of other improvements.

Firstly, the update brings a major new feature to Microsoft Edge, allowing users to read EPUB books. With this feature, Edge users can read any unprotected e-book in Microsoft Edge. Users can also control the font size, text size and use the bookmark feature to leave bookmarks in a book which is pretty neat.

Additionally, Microsoft is also making PowerShell the defacto command shell from File Explorer — replacing CMD in the Win+X menu and File Explorer’s File menu. Users who prefer to use CMD can continue to do so by disabling the change from the Settings app’s Personalization > Taskbar section.

More importantly, the Paint 3D preview app is now installed by default on Windows 10 which isn’t anything surprising to see as it’s one of the biggest features coming with the Creative Update next year. Lastly, the build also includes improvements to type experiences with Japenese and Chinese input method editors.

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 14971 from Windows Update in the Settings app. The update is only available for PCs, in case you’re wondering.
