Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 Technical Preview for PCs, Build 1061. The preview includes new mail and calendar apps, and improvements to Start, Taskbar, and Action Center. It also adds optimization of the Task Bar for tablets, Task View improvements, and the ability to create as many virtual desktops as needed.
The new email and calendar apps use a three-pane email user interface, with the ability to toggle quickly between the two. The Mail app includes customizable swipe gesture support, allowing users to swipe right or left to do things like delete, flag, move, or mark email as read or unread.
The apps also offer users some tricks that are more like Microsoft Word than email. It’s easy to insert tables, add pictures, and use bullets and color in text, Microsoft says. Both the new Mail and Calendar apps support Office 365, Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, IMAP, POP, and other email clients.
