Early this week, Microsoft began more aggressively upping its Windows 10 deployment offering by re-categorizing the upgrade as a recommended update for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 customers. However, if you want to stay in the previous version of the operating system a little longer, this week I also showed you how to block the Windows 10 upgrade. Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14257 rolls out to the Fast ring of updates. While the new preview for Insiders doesn’t contain any visual improvements, Microsoft notes that there are a number of bug fixes and warns about several known issues without workarounds at this time. Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 10586.71 for phones also rolled out this week to Insiders in the Fast ring of updates with a lot of bug fixes and improvements, and short after, the build also became available through the Slow ring of updates. Microsoft’s Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL phones received a new firmware update to improve stability and call audio quality. The software giant is rolling out the update now, but it will take a few days until the February firmware update reach everyone. Lumia 650 is supposed to be the last phone Microsoft will be releasing with Lumia brand, and this week an official rendering press image leaks onto the web revealing how the phone could look like. Microsoft is no longer the only company making Windows phones anymore, VAIO, the former Sony laptop division, has just unveiled the VAIO Phone Biz. It’s a new mid-range Windows 10 Mobile phone with decent hardware, which also includes supports for continuum. Surface 3 received a small firmware update to improve the touch panel and battery charging. The software giant continues to expand its portfolio of mobile products by purchasing SwiftKey, which is one of the most popular on-screen keyboard software available on iOS and Android. Although, the company said that the software will continue to be able on the platforms, Microsoft also notes that it will be porting the SwiftKey technology into its Word Flow keyboard for Windows Phone. We also got a closer look at the WiFi Tool, a new Windows 10 universal app with a number of features that can help you analyze and survey wireless networks. Finally, this week I also added a new handy Windows 10 guide to show you a number of different techniques to boot your PC running Windows 10 into Safe Mode.
