Microsoft officially announces the Windows App Preview Program


Considering this is built for demanding workloads, Microsoft has restricted this feature to Windows 10 Pro Workstations that often run server-grade hardware. Its Insider builds have been separated from the active development of Windows 10. "These builds will come from the RS_PRERELEASE branch", Microsoft explains. Skip Ahead users will receive a different branch of updates which will focus on the cutting edge, not created to represent a stable update. Well, there's nothing huge here, with some emoji getting an update, and the expansion of Windows app permissions to let the user decide which UWP apps get access to Windows 10's full file system. You'll also be able to change some of the finer points of Ultimate Performance mode, such as when the display turns off and when the PC goes to sleep, along with advanced power settings for certain pieces of hardware.

Available to Windows Insider users on the Fast Ring cycle who have opted to "not skip ahead" and will receive build number 17101, Ultimate Performance mode is enabled in the Power Options control panel.

Furthermore, when Windows 10 Pro for Workstations is initially set up, it will now offer business and productivity-focused apps, rather than consumer-targeted software and games, which certainly makes sense. Microsoft, it would seem, recognizes that, and it'll soon be rolling out a new power profile for Windows 10 Pro that should help bolster performance beyond what's now allowed by the OS.

The power scheme is aimed at reducing micro-latencies associated with power management techniques.
