Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10074 is now available

The newest build, 10074, is now available. This build is named Windows 10 Insider Preview (instead of Technical Preview). We’ve made some UI improvements in this build, and fixed some issues:

  • You can now launch Win32 (desktop) apps from the Start menu again.
  • Music can be downloaded in the Xbox Music and Music Preview apps.
  • When you minimize an app that is playing audio, the audio will continue to play now.

This is a preview version, so there are some known issues. The following issues are already fixed in update KB 3061161:

  • The Start menu and Cortana do not open on Windows 10 Insider Preview after upgrading from Windows 10 Technical Preview
  • Updated versions of preinstalled apps might not install with error 0x8004264A after upgrading to Windows 10 Insider Preview
  • Qualcomm Atheros Bluetooth radio controllers might not function and indicate a Code 43 error in Device Manager
  • This update enables the Dolby Digital Plus codec

Some other known issues we are investigating:

We hope you enjoy the new build. Please do provide feedback on it through the Windows Feedback app.

I passed the desire to explore windows 10 :((

same here
Go to file explorer and click to this PC. On the top, you will see pc settings/purple square with a white gear
Start Menu is not working and can't get to Windows Update in KB 3061161 because the notification center seems inaccessible, from touchscreen or mouse. Windows Update is no longer in the Control Panel, so is there a direct way to access the new Settings? Seems like Settings should be an option with right click on start menu.

You can Access Windows Update executing this command:

%windir%\system32\wuapp.exe startmenu

also you can download directly the packacge:

x64 = <removed>

x86 = <removed>
