Microsoft is stealing the iOS Control Center for Windows 10

After the update process is complete a restart is required and to verify your build number hit the Windows key and type: winver and hit Enter and you should see you have Version 1702 Build 16199.1000.

Microsoft has updated preview builds of Windows 10 to add notifications for incoming calls on Android but apologized for limiting access to its much-vaunted Story Remix feature. The problems are made even more notable by Microsoft's emphasis on the Universal Windows Platform, games, and Windows Mixed Reality during last week's Build developer conference. Friends can now send (spam?) emoji from your taskbar, and they'll animate and display on your desktop.

If you're OK with the above and want to get build 16199 now, head to PC Settings, select "Update and recovery", then "Preview builds", and then click the "Check Now" button. Drag-and-drop files directly onto the contacts in your taskbar to start an email, or share directly to your contacts via the share picker by choosing from a list recommended people to email. Another improvement, a notification that will pop up on your screen when your Android phone receives a call, is part of the new cross-device connectivity built into the upcoming Fall Creators Update. At first this should work with any Android phone that has the Cortana wizard installed and running.

Microsoft is also expanding its Storage Sense feature, which helps automatically free up storage space. The next time you receive a call, a notification will appear on your Fast ring PC telling you who it is and giving you the option to text back a reply or decline the call.

We've updated Windows Defender Security Center so as to no longer flag disabled drivers as issues.

The build is already on Windows Update, and Insiders may download and install it that way. You can confirm you have the right build of Visual Studio Preview by going to Help About to confirm you are on Version 15.3 (26510.0-Preview) or later. The interface was cleaned up, and you find information on the system's health there on a glance taken from the Windows Defender Security Center.

Fixed an issue resulting in many Win32 apps not launching if certain third party antivirus programs were active prior to upgrading. Microsoft has also adjusted the health scan logic so that using maximum brightness when connected to AC power will not flag a warning.

It's thought Microsoft's intention is to remove Quick Actions from the Notification Center so that it serves purely as a Notification Center.

Going forward from this build the state of rotation lock will be preserved across upgrades.

Preview Build 16199 also moves around other settings and includes some bug fixes, such as one that caused color profiles to be ignored after "launching certain fullscreen games".

Updated the context menus for apps and tiles in Start to now include icons for more actions, including Share, Uninstall, and Rate.

"As you can imagine, this is very important for us to get right when bringing new features to Windows 10".
