    During the Microsoft 2015 Build conference, Joe Belfiore took the stage to talk about how developers can easily build apps and take advantage of the new operating system. More importantly, he showed off a bunch of features and improvements, which are not available on any of the public preview of Windows 10, but they will arrive eventually.

    It is worth pointing out that many of the improvements Microsoft showed off during the Build conference are already part of Windows 10 build 10074. So this article focus only on a few of those features and improvements that we know are in the pipeline and aren't available on any of the Insider previews.

    Let's look at what Microsoft is planning to include in future builds of its operating system:

    From what I read, I can do without Cortana and Edge. I'm not going to be happy with the changes to the start menu. Hopefully Classic Shell will continue to work in 10.

    Five good reasons for me to stick with W7

    "For discovery and engagement, Microsoft will add a "Suggested" list, which will deliver smart suggestions of apps from the Windows Store if after a while you haven't installed any apps. You can also notice that the app tile also provides star rating and pricing information for a particular app."

    "As the system learns your behavior using and installing apps, the Suggested list will become the "Recently added" list of apps. And when the users use the app enough, the apps will then get listed in the "Most used" list."


    "Microsoft's Belfiore also noted that with these new tweaks, the Start menu is pretty much a final product. As such, we don't expect any more significant changes beyond what we see today."


    "Cortana will also feature app discoverability from the Windows Store as users use search."


    "Future updates of Microsoft Edge will include a new "New Tab" window with the most recent links users have visited in the form of tiles. If the site they visited has an app available in the Windows Store, you will see "Get the app" notification in the link tile as well."

    If they (MS) are going to remove the "full screen" button from the Start Menu, how does one get a full screen Start Menu?

    Reach for keyboard and press F11?

    Yell at Cortana, "Hey, Cortana, Full Screen!"?

    Huh? Am I missing something here?

    Now that would be ok.... grab the upper right corner and drag it anywhere to re-size menu! That would work... dynamic resizing.

    You've gotta be kiddin' me. There must be some way to disable this "Get the App" notification or else I'm staying away from Windows 10 for good. Total nonsense. This feature won't be available to Enterprise users, will it?

    Initial impression is, I'm not liking the Start Menu at all. Will have to actually use the final version for a while to see if I can warm up to it though.

    Umm.. most of those are already there in Windows 7, so I'm not really sure what your complaint is...

    Windows 7 already has a recently used apps list...
