The previous Build 15002 (for PC) was released a few days ago to Insiders from the Fast ring, and Microsoft has introduced new features for its Edge browser, Cortana and Windows Ink. Also, users have received a new Share experience and they’ve been given the possibility to pause updates. The new Build 15007 comes with many bug fixes, as well as new features and improvements.
