The latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17063 has added the long delayed Timeline feature. As the name implies, Timeline allows users to see a timeline of past activities, apps and files that were accessed on their machine.
A central window displays a list of accessed apps, modified files, and other computer activity. It’s a sort of expanded enhanced ‘Recently Access’ window, providing a more detailed and navigable look at user history. Clicking on any item will jump back to that content.
What’s more the Timeline feature goes beyond a single PC. It can show every activity that was made by the same account across multiple PCs and mobile devices. For now, timeline only works with Universal Windows Apps like Office 365 and Edge. Microsoft is actively reaching to other developers to incorporate into the Timeline feature.
Microsoft is also bringing the new “Sets” feature to the Insider preview. While the feature doesn’t quite have a final name, Sets brings tabs to the Windows Explorer window. It essentially allows users to group similar tasks into a single place, and making it more similar to web browsing.
The latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17063 also brings new functionalities for Cortana, Windows Shell, better data management and more. This is all in the testing phase and is only available to Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring and those who opted to Skip Ahead. It’s more of an early closed beta while Microsoft refines the features.
