Microsoft's newest Windows 10 "Redstone 4" test build, released February 7, adds a button that allows users to delete diagnostic data that Microsoft collects as part of its telemetry process. This build is a portion of the RS4 section, which depicts the subsequent Windows 10 update the corporation has still to declare. There's also an Account Protection Pillar that supports password users to establish up Windows Hello Face, Fingerprint, or PIN for faster sign in, and a Device Security Pillar that gives status recording and management of security features made into your devices. Users watching HDR video on a laptop might want to approach the feature with caution because HDR playback uses the full brightness of the display. Microsoft says a lot of modern machines are capable of playing HDR but need to be calibrated in the factory to be able to do so.

Moreover, there is a new "Clutter-free printing" option that can remove ads and more for certain type of web pages.

Another improvement under the graphics banner involves enabling HDR video on more Windows PCs.
