Windows 10 Lean Redstone 5 Ditches Superfluous Features For Better Performance

Anyone who has ever managed computers that see a lot of public contact knows they have to be locked down, and Windows 10 Lean seems designed for that particular objective. The bi-annual update cycle has now settled down into a rollout that lasts a few weeks, starting with the most recent, easy to serve machines and spilling down into older chipsets as it solves the inevitable driver issues with them. For example, Microsoft Edge on Android supports Timeline, as a result, the browsing activity left off in Microsoft Edge for Android could be resumed on your PC.

Microsoft has given roughly a month's warning to Windows Phone users before retiring its collaboration apps on the platform. The timeline snapshots are displayed as cards, and the interface is quite easy to operate. It seems that Microsoft is willing to try out something similar with Windows 10, if the leaks are to believed. It is supposed to improve the sharing feature between the Windows 10 devices.

We won't know what Windows 10 Lean is really designed for until Microsoft says so, but If you want to check it out now you can do so in Redstone 5 Insider preview build 17650, available now to Windows Insider members.

The update brings the build number of the operating system to 16299.402. While everyone has been calling the next update the "Spring Creators Update", Microsoft Edges's welcome page in build 17134.1 is calling it the "April Update". If you wonder how much will be removed from a standard Windows 10 version, somebody on Twitter mentioned that Windows 10 Lean doesn't even ship with default wallpaper. Pumped for the April Update? Microsoft, like Google and Apple, is looking to enter the entry-level computing segment, and has been pitching Windows 10 S as the operating system to its OEM partners. Windows 10 S was offered as a version for premium ultrabooks that preferred enhanced security and faster boot times.
