Last week Microsoft released Windows 10 Preview Build 19587 to the Fast Ring. Now, this week, the company pushes Windows 10 Preview Build 19592 for Insiders in the Fast ring. The company again started testing the new tablet experience for convertible PCs with this build.
The build comes with minor changes in the new tablet experience, which include spaced taskbar icons, collapsed search icon, File Explorer with more padding, and auto invoke Touch keyboard when you tap a text field. In addition, it comes with improved Windows Search Platform Indexer for better indexing and experience while searching and, as usual, a list of bug fixes.
What’s new in Build 19592?
Tablet posture improvements for 2-in-1 convertible PCs
We are beginning to roll out (again*) the new tablet experience for 2-in-1 convertible PCs as a preview to some Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. This experience is separate from the Tablet Mode experience that you will still be able to use. This new experience allows users entering tablet posture to stay in the familiar desktop experience without interruption with a few key touch improvements:
- Taskbar icons are spaced out
- Search box on taskbar is collapsed into icon-only mode
- Touch keyboard auto invokes when you tap a text field
- File explorer elements will have a little more padding, to make them comfortable to interact with using touch
General changes & improvements
The Windows Search Platform (Indexer) has been updated with improved logic to help find better times to perform indexing of your files and avoiding heavily indexing while you are using your machine. An improvement was also made to significantly limit the amount of times the service indexes your files for content that doesn’t have an impact on search experiences, and gives you a better experience on Windows.
