Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14965 for PC and Mobile arrives on the Fast ring

We’ve already started to see the beginnings of the next big version of Windows 10 appearing in new builds for Windows Insiders. Termed the Creators Update it has a heavy focus on 3D, but there’s more to it than just that.

The previous new Insider Build, released last week, didn’t have much in terms of new features on show, but the latest offering, Build 14965, is thankfully much more exciting.

If you have a Windows tablet, you will now be able to control a second screen using a virtual touchpad -- no need to attach a mouse. Just connect the second display to your tablet, go to Action Center and tap on the Project Quick Action to extend your screen. Press and hold on the taskbar and select 'Show touchpad button' to use the virtual touchpad just as you would a physical one. Microsoft's recent touchpad improvements have all been carried over here.

The new build also includes a Sticky Notes update for PC. This sports an improved UI, adds lots more options and support for different languages, fixes some issues, and improves text input performance. It will be easier to get future updates now too.

Some more improvements have been made to Windows Ink Workspace, such as increasing the number of recently used apps, and boosting performance. The address bar in the registry editor has been enhanced (you can now use shorthand notation for HKEY names, and there’s a new shortcut to focus the address bar -- Ctrl+L). There have been some improvements made to the Hyper-V VM as well in this build.

That’s not all though. Other improvements and fixes for PC include:
