Build 10240 now available for Windows Insiders in Fast and Slow rings

Microsoft has released new build 10240 to both the Fast and Slow rings. You’ll notice with this build that the desktop watermark is no longer there.

On Monday Microsoft announced that builds from here on will only be available through Windows Update, so to get this one you can either wait and it will be installed automatically or go to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for updates. Remember that you’ll need to be logged in with your Microsoft Account in order to receive the build.

Changes made in this build:

In this build, Microsoft Edge is even better and is beating Chrome and Safari on their own JavaScript benchmarks:

  • On WebKit Sunspider, Edge is 112% faster than Chrome
  • On Google Octane, Edge is 11% faster than Chrome
  • On Apple JetStream, Edge is 37% faster than Chrome
