Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15007 released

Microsoft has released this night Windows 10 Insider Preview, build 15007, for Insiders in Fast Ring for PC. This build comes with some new features, some bug fixes and also with a long list of known issues.


Here is what’s new to this build:

  • Sharing your tabs (PC): Ability to share a set of tabs with many apps installed on your .
  • Import data (PC): Bring your data over from another browser when you switch to Microsoft .
  • Running faster (PC): Choose to “Run” a download link without first saving it – also a Save As button has been added.
  • Web Notes improvements (PC): Updated Web Notes to now leverage the familiar Windows Ink experience you’ve come to know in Photos and Maps, amongst other places.
  • Text scaling and zoom (Mobile): Microsoft Edge you can now zoom into a webpage regardless of zoom settings defined by the website.
  • Apps for Websites: Clicking links to websites that support web-to-app linking will now open that page in the respective app.

Also theme downloads from Windows store will come (the icon is present but non functional). Cortana can help you pick up where you left off (PC) and some more features. There is also a long list of known issues. Some issues I noticed in build 15002 are confirmed by Microsoft in their announcement of build 15007. I had an upgrade error 0xc0000017 – not sufficient memory to create a ramdisk for Windows PE in an attempt to upgrade an existing build to 15002 or 15007.

This error has been dropped last time in April 2016 during upgrading build 14328. Needless to say, that my virtual machine with Windows 10 preview test install runs with 1,4 GB RAM – more than the Microsoft specs requires. BTW: After dropping error 0xc0000017 – all I could do was a reboot. Then Windows Update started to download the update to build 15002/15007 again – from scratch. So I wasted a ton of download volume. After I increased the VM’s RAM to 2,4 GByte, I was able to upgrade to build 15007. Well, that’s Insider Preview experience – let’s hope, the buddies in their cubicles down in Redmond will fix all those behavior until the final of Windows 10 Creators Update will be shipped to all Windows 10 users.
