Microsoft is engaged in a strategy of continuous updating of Windows 10 that will extend beyond of Creators Update. After advancing important developments such as its turn to 3D and Game Mode to improve its performance by optimizing system resources, the Insider Build 15031 has dropped several weight changes that will no doubt be grateful for users of the Microsoft operating system.
As the Redmond firm has announced, the latest build of Windows 10 introduces something called Compact Overlay, which is nothing more than a PiP (Picture in Picture) mode thanks to which a window can be stacked over the rest of the applications. This feature will be especially handy for media players (some of which already offered similar features), but also for publishers of text and reader.
It should be noted that Compact Overlay will only be available in UWA applications (downloaded from the official Windows store).
The second great innovation of the Insider Build 15031 is called Dynamic Lock and is likely to be familiar to users on other platforms. More specifically, Dynamic Lock will lock and unlock the computer using an associated Bluetooth device, so that if the user gets too far away from the computer, this will automatically log out.
Other interesting changes introduced in this trial version come from the hand of the bar of Windows games, which now has improved support for its use in full screen and supports 52 additional titles. It was also eliminated crashes detected by some users using the Game mode, failures in selective capture of screens and a large number of small bugs reported by users of the Windows Insider program.
As always, we speak of a version of Windows 10 not quite polished and with which Microsoft wants to bring to its faithful some of the features in which it is still working, so that its operation can provide an occasionally unsatisfactory experience.
