If it’s not another Windows 10 PC preview build… Microsoft has just pushed out another Windows 10 build to the Windows Insiders making it the third build this week.

Windows 10 10162 comes after the feature-packed 10158 and bug-fixer Windows 10 10159. You must be thinking what comes after features and bug fixes? Well, this build brings in more stability, improvements to battery life (hear hear, Google) as well as performance improvements. Windows 10 build 10162 is still in the rolling phase so Slow ring users will soon get it too if no major issues surface during the release to Fast ring members.

What’s new in Windows 10 10162?

According to Brad Sams, the only new feature so far discovered in this current build is a tip feature. When you switch to tablet mode, you will get the window shared below. Clicking it would take you the Get Started app highlighting all the new features.

As this is one the final builds before RTM build is released, expect to see more tips being included in the operating system helping users navigate through the new features that Microsoft is offering in its last Windows.

Don’t fret if you haven’t seen any new update for this build as it’s on its way to your machine too. In the meanwhile, take a look at the Windows 10 10162 images shared by¬†neowin:

Microsoft is set to release Windows 10 in over 190 countries globally on July 29. However, company shared earlier today that not everyone will get the update on the same day.
