Windows 10 Build 10240 is live now for Windows Insiders. Official Changelog.

Build 10240

A pleasant surprise here!! Microsoft has made Build 10240 available for Windows Insiders in both rings and as we write this post, we are able to install it on our Netbook. Also as confirmed earlier the build now comes from TH1 professional branch. We had just reported some leaked screenshots of the Build 10240 and the build was claimed to be the Windows 10 RTM build. As per Microsoft “this build is one step closer to what customers will start to receive on 7/29” and they also confirm that Besides builds, over the next 2 weeks you’ll also see some Windows Updates and app updates in the Store. So it looks like a pre general release kind of build.

Build 10240 Changelog:

Over the past few days we’ve been preparing our release pipelines and processes, and this build is one step closer to what customers will start to receive on 7/29. For example, you’ll notice with this build that the desktop watermark is no longer there (you can still do Search > Winver to see your version number.

On Monday we announced that builds from here on will only be available through Windows Update, so to get this one you can either wait and it will be installed automatically (but who are we kidding, I know you want it now!) or go to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for updates. Remember that you’ll need to be logged in with your Microsoft Account in order to receive the build.

Besides builds, over the next 2 weeks you’ll also see some Windows Updates and app updates in the Store, so make sure to keep checking for updates daily to make sure you’re running the latest and greatest code.

Microsoft Edge is blazing fast!

The Edge team has been continuing to optimize performance since first adding the new browser to Windows 10. In this build, Microsoft Edge is even better and is beating Chrome and Safari on their own JavaScript benchmarks:

  • On WebKit Sunspider, Edge is 112% faster than Chrome
  • On Google Octane, Edge is 11% faster than Chrome
  • On Apple JetStream, Edge is 37% faster than Chrome

We’re really pleased with those performance gains and we hope that you’ll enjoy faster browsing with Microsoft Edge along with the many great features we’ve added over the last several builds.
