Microsoft may have gone too far with Windows 10 upgrade this time

Windows 10 build 14366 was the first to launch (followed by 14367 yesterday) for the fast ring and it appears that feedback is good, so Microsoft decided to make it available to the slow ring as well.

Insider Program members in the Fast Ring should be receiving the update soon, although there were some reported delays because of the development team testing out new builds internally.

Various instances such as lags compel users to refresh the Windows installed on their PCs. In the event the Start Fresh tool actually installs a previous Windows Insider build instead of the most current one you're on (likely Build 14367), you won't be able to keep your personal files as part of the new installation.

The Fast ring users who cannot get enough of Windows 10 have another new Insider Preview to try out. What it does is install clean copy of the most recent version of Windows while removing apps either that came pre-installed on your PC or that you installed after taking possession of the system.

If you click on a file download link outside of Microsoft Edge, sometimes Edge will open a tab and close it without doing anything. This suggests that Microsoft plans to launch it around the time of the Anniversary Update for Windows 10. One time-tested (and often time-consuming) way of dealing with them is to reinstall your operating system, and Microsoft makes that pretty easy to do in Windows 10 by including a "reset this PC" option in the Recovery section of the Update & Security settings.

Refresh Windows, which must be downloaded from Microsoft's website, now works only on preview builds of 10, those seeded to participants of the Insider program.

Like each new build, the Windows-maker has fixed known issues and introduced a few minor and some significant improvements.

Other than that, you have bug fixes, which include unexpected battery drain when synchronizing mail-using IMAP along with problems that prevent users from installing keyboards and languages without resetting the phone completely after upgrading from Windows Phone 8.1.
