The build 10568 of Windows 10 just leaked. If it offers very little change from the 10565 released last week, there is one, however, which deserves a close look and which concerns applications installed by default.
The beta news is linked at a frantic pace, even if the 10568 has not been released via the traditional channels of Windows Insider and it is supposed to be reserved for a handful of privileged people. No significant novelty has yet been identified in this edition, with the exception of this one: a new window appears when you want to use another application than the ones delivered by default within Windows 10. This delivers the message “don’t switch and try now” (“don’t change and try it now”). The message in question is displayed when you want to use Chrome or Firefox instead of Microsoft Edge. It highlights certain features of Microsoft Edge, such as the use of Cortana within the browser or the possibility of taking notes on web pages.
Windows 10: Ready, Ready? Boost!
The same dialog box also appears when the user wants to use other applications than those dedicated to photos and videos in Windows 10. Clearly, Microsoft does everything to push users to use its own applications, at the expense of course of the competition. We are now waiting for the reaction of the competition in question, which had already been vehement when Windows 10 came out, especially on the side of Mozilla. Unless Microsoft backtracks for the official release of the next Windows 10 build?
