Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10525 Announced

Last week Microsoft announced Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 10512. Without delaying further, Microsoft is here with Insider Preview Build 10525 to Windows Insider in the Fast Ring.

As stated by Microsoft’s Gabe Aul via a Blog Post:

“This is our first new build since the release of Windows 10, and I’m very happy to talk about one new thing that you’ll see because it really highlights both how your feedback influences the product development as well as illustrating how some things will get implemented at different times depending on when we’re trying to stabilize and drive quality vs. when we’re open for new feature work.”

The following are the changes done :

Default Colors

The feature to change the default color for Start, Action Center, Taskbar, and Title bars is now available in this build.

Turn it on by toggling : Settings > Personalization > Colors, it is by default off.

Improvements in Memory Management

A new concept introduced is called a compression store. It is an in-memory collection of compressed pages.

He also stated :

“In Windows 10, we have added a new concept in the Memory Manager called a compression store, which is an in-memory collection of compressed pages. This means that when Memory Manager feels memory pressure, it will compress unused pages instead of writing them to disk. This reduces the amount of memory used per process, allowing Windows 10 to maintain more applications in physical memory at a time. This also helps provide better responsiveness across Windows 10. The compression store lives in the System process’s working set. Since the system process holds the store in memory, its working set grows larger exactly when memory is being made available for other processes. This is visible in Task Manager and the reason the System process appears to be consuming more memory than previous releases.”
