It looks like Microsoft is delivering its promised more regular Windows builds. The company just pushed out a new build to Fast Track users of the Windows 10 Technical Preview: build number 10061.
Highlights of the new build are new Mail and Calendar apps, based on the same Universal Apps as the Windows 10 for phones apps released a couple of weeks ago, and more configurability of the operating system's appearance, including a new dark theme. The Continuum experience, used in tablet and hybrid devices, should also be improved.
As with the other Technical Preview builds of Windows 10, this isn't yet ready as a daily driver operating system, and Microsoft describes a number of known issues in its release notes. Perhaps most substantial is that traditional Win32 desktop applications cannot currently be launched from the Start menu. They can be launched from icons pinned on the taskbar, or from search, but not from the menu itself.

Microsoft have released a new build for Windows 10 TP, this one has Spartan enabled.
Here are some issues we fixed in this build
We’ve fixed the issue from Build 10041 for when the Photos app on your PC crashes when you tap on the circular icon (your camera roll – thanks Rafael) at the top left to view the photo you just took.
We’ve also fixed the issue from Build 10041 where you might end up in a state where windows open on your desktop are accidentally visible behind the Start Screen, Task View, Snap Assist, and when rearranging windows in Tablet Mode.
You will no longer get stuck when you manually lock your PC (Windows Key + L) during the initial out-of-box experience.
Here are some known issues for this build
After logging in, you may see a blue screen instead of your desktop. To work around this issue, lock your PC (with the hardware button or by pressing the Windows Key + L) and try logging in again. You can also try Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open Task Manager.
Indexing of new email in Outlook is not working, so search results will be limited to when the last index was built.
If you have Virtual Machines hosted in Hyper-V on your PC running Windows 10, you will want to move to the Slow ring and wait for the next build as this build breaks the ability to run VMs.
There are 2 issues using Visual Studio 2015 preview on this build:
The emulators will not boot and you won’t be able to deploy a Windows Universal app to the Mobile emulator.
The XAML designer in VS and Blend will crash when opened.
If you are a developer using these tools today to develop Windows Universal apps and need this functionality to work – we recommend switching to the Slow ring until we release a patch to fix these issues.
This build is pretty much all about Project Spartan, so we hope you enjoy getting your hands on it for the first time. As with all other new features we’ve introduced, we have a ton of work left to do with Spartan so expect to see some bugs and rough edges in this first preview. As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback via the Windows Feedback App.
Microsoft have released the ISOs for build 10041. You can also download the ISO files for a clean installation of the operating system or if you want to do an upgrade, you can download them directly using the links below:
- Download ISO file for Windows 10 build 10041 64-bit (English)
- Download ISO file for Windows 10 build 10041 32-bit (English)
- Download all ISO files in all the languages and platforms available here
Finally.... Microsoft is rolling out Build 10041 for PCs to the Fast ring. Like all of the previous preview builds this one comes with a collection of new functionality and bug fixes.
The build will only be available through Windows Update for systems already running a previous Windows 10 build.
Once downloaded, you can install it...
Microsoft intend to release ISOs for builds that go to the Slow ring, but Fast ring builds will be direct downloads only.
Microsoft is working hard to bring you a new build of Windows 10 for phones as well but they need a bit more time for that one, and they still expect to support additional phones when they release it.
