Microsoft's Near Share to Bring AirDrop-Like Experience to Windows 10

Microsoft's Near Share to Bring AirDrop-Like Experience to Windows 10

This upcoming release is part of the Redstone 4 development branch, and Microsoft has just sent out a new build to Windows Insiders on the Fast ring: Windows 10 Build 17035.

Near Share is a way to wirelessly share files and URLs to nearby PCs and is new to this test release. You can simply click on the audio icon to mute a tab in question; clicking it again will restore audio. The recipient will be notified of your intended file transfer, and will have to accept it before the move is made. In order for it to work, both users need to have a Bluetooth connection on their PC, and their OS has to be on Preview Build version 17035.

If you have sound coming from multiple tabs on Edge, you can now mute the pages. This feature works with apps that are enabled to share, including Photos, Microsoft Edge and File Explorer.

Windows Update Improvements: You can now limit the download bandwidth that is used in foreground downloads. New sections on Display, Audio, Speech Recognition and Eye control (beta) have been added to group related settings. There are a number of other improvements in this build, but check out the Microsoft post for the details.

Those using a touch-based keyboard will notice that there are more standard configurations for different languages. You can also try out the new acrylic background that comes with this build.

Handwriting panel improvements. You pen fans will enjoy a new layout, and new animations, in the handwriting panel, plus improved word correction and split gesture support for adding space between two words. "You can see three text suggestions near caret while typing and choose candidates in text suggestions if you find a word you want to insert", writes Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc.

Microsoft also is enabling testers with 17035 to shop for Surface hardware through the Microsoft Store (the app formerly known as Windows Store).

Activate Near Share in the Quick Settings Pane.
