Microsoft has started rolling out Windows 10 build 10240 to testers. It’s the final copy of Windows 10 that the software company is planning to sign off on, and it should represent how the operating will look and feel on July 29th. While it’s the final version, Microsoft is already building many updates ready for July 29th and the built-in apps will change rapidly over the coming months. Updates will include extension support for the Microsoft Edge browser and a bigger update later this fall.
Microsoft is testing its update mechanism today, and only existing Windows 10 testers will be able to access build 10240. The software maker will not make ISOs available until July 29th as the company wants all testers to upgrade through its Windows Update mechanism to make final tweaks and changes to the way Windows 10 will be distributed to existing PCs later this month. If you’re already a Windows 10 tester then you can simply check Windows Update to receive the latest bits, and you’ll notice that the desktop watermark has now been removed. Microsoft will continue to push updates over the course of the next two weeks in the lead up to the launch on July 29th.
