Windows 10 Build 10558: Install Apps to Other Than Main ‘C:’ Drive
Windows 10 Build 10558 has recently leaked on the Internet. While the upcoming official Insider Preview is revealed to pack a handful of new features and improvements, perhaps the most interesting of them all is the ability to install apps to other than the main “C:” drive or partition.
Microsoft removed the feature from Windows 10 back in July, saying it wasn’t ready for prime time. Thankfully though, the feature now seems to be ready for Threshold 2 release which is expected to arrive later this year. This will allow users to install apps to a different drive or a permanently attached microSD card.
Obviously, this isn’t a major feature, but might be a life saver for many, especially tablet or laptop hybrid users. This is a global setting instead of a per app basis though.
Additionally, the latest build, 10558, should bring a few new features to Microsoft Edge, including the ability to sync Favorites. The company has also incorporated a new tab preview feature in the Edge browser. The feature will let users take a peek at a different tab without having to switch to it, which is surely a productivity saver for many.
The leaked build also hints at the debut of a new universal Messaging app for Windows 10. The app is said to support messaging over Skype and eventually even SMS, at least for those devices that support the functionality.
