Windows 10 has an answer for anyone who'd love to mess with your PC when you leave for lunch. The latest Insider Build 15031 includes a new “Dynamic Lock” feature that secures your machine when you’re not around. Another handy new feature is Compact Overlay for launching standalone video windows. Neither is fully operational yet, but it gives us a peek into some of the finer points to expect as Windows 10 moves toward the Creators Update.
What's New : Do more at once with the new Compact Overlay window: Ever want to continue watching a movie while switching app to check your email? Or keep an eye on your video chat even as you're browsing the web? We do all the time! Some tasks don't require the user's full attention but is perfect to leave at the corner of the screen so we're introducing a new compact overlay mode for UWA app developers. When an app window enters compact overlay mode it'll be shown above other windows so it won't get blocked. The best part is that compact overlay windows work just like normal windows in all other ways so app developers can tailor the experience with what they already know. Updates to the Movies & TV app and Skype Preview app will take advantage of compact overlay windows in the near future! Introducing Dynamic Lock: Dynamic Lock automatically locks your Windows 10 PC when you're not around based the proximity of a Bluetooth-paired phone. If your Bluetooth-paired phone is not found near your PC, Windows turns off the screen and locks the PC after 30 seconds. To enable Dynamic Lock, make sure your phone is paired to your PC via Bluetooth and go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options and toggle Dynamic lock to "on". New Share icon: We're introducing a new share icon. Apps that used the "share" font glyph in Segoe MDL2 assets should get the change automatically Windows Game Bar improved full-screen support: We got a ton of feedback on Game Bar and we are continually adding more titles with this support. In this build, we've added support for 52 additional games in full-screen mode with Windows game bar.
