Windows 10 Build 10586 launches as Threshold 2

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft has remained completely tight-lipped on Windows 10 Threshold 2, but according to people close to the matter, this eagerly anticipated update is due next week for RTM users.

The latest preview build that Microsoft has shipped to insiders, however, is very likely to be the Threshold 2 that the company plans to push out in just a few days, as Redmond first wants testers to try it out and only then make it available for everyone if no major bugs are found.

Interestingly, the previous speculation on this proves to be true, as sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans revealed that the software giant initially aimed at a November 2 release but then decided to hold back the rollout in order to provide insiders with the final bits for testing purposes.

So build 10586 is almost certainly Threshold 2, with Microsoft itself confirming that this is one of the most stable and reliable versions so far and that it “makes a great daily driver.”

What’s more, as @tfwboredom confirms, there are no mentions or references to an “insider preview,” so the build is simply named Windows 10 Pro.

On the other hand, this particular version is currently available for the fast ring only, which makes some people wonder why Microsoft hasn’t shipped it to all testers from the very beginning.

Windows 10 Threshold 2 is projected to land for stable users on Tuesday, the same day when Microsoft starts the rollout of this month’s Patch Tuesday security fixes. It will include features that have been tested by insiders in the last couple of months, among which colored title bars, a new messaging app, Edge enhancements here and there, plus some tweaks to the desktop, such as a fourth column for the Start menu.

Threshold 2 will ship via Windows Update and not as a new build, making the process easier and smoother for everyone (although we all know that installing Windows updates could go wrong at any moment).
