Been a while since we’ve had a proper Windows 10 build leak, but a new one just has. Build 10036 has been posted on the web, and is now available in the dark nook and corners of the internet.
That is, if you want to go looking for it.
Expect to dig around a bit — but this version is out there.
This follows build 9901 which showed up unofficially back in December. Microsoft followed it up a little while later with build 9926, also known as the January Technical Preview. Since then the company has promised feaster preview releases.
However, it has had trouble keeping its word, for one reason or another.
Come back to build 10036, this one comes from the partner channel, and for this reason is missing many features that users might expect. Maybe Windows 10 Activator should be released too.. And that is due to the fact that these leak out more often than internal builds that Microsoft employees test day in and day out.
Meaning if you are expecting to see the Spartan web browser in this leaked version, then brace for disappointment. Same goes for Start Menu transparency, but that’s just how it is.
These features are coming soon, though.
Also be aware that since this is a leaked version, Microsoft will not be supporting this with updates or security patches. If you install this, you are very much on your own.
Windows 10 Build 10036 May Be The Next Preview Release

At least, according to WZor, the prominent leaker of Microsoft software. Intelligence from Russia suggests that Windows 10 build 10036 is likely to be released to Windows Insiders soon.
Yes, the same version that saw a bucketload of screenshots leak yesterday.
And yes, the same version that apparently comes without a few widely expected features — features like Start Menu transparency and the Spartan web browser. Unless someone is doing a really great job hiding them, it seems we may not get them in the next version that gets published.
Details to when this version will be release are not available, however.
But WZor promises that more is coming:
it seems to me 10036 pro will be given to insiders… more is coming

Microsoft, it is said, is fixing a few bugs and giving this version final touches. Theoretically it could launch later today or sometimes this week, but this much is clear that we are very close to a new preview version of Windows 10.
From the look of things, meaning the images that leaked, this version does not bring all that much new in terms of features and user interface.
So let’s just hope Redmond ships the best possible version to users when it decides to do so. It has been a long time coming, and leaks have revealed much.
Any day now, then.
As Microsoft barrels down the road to ecosystem integration, we are starting to see evidence of that integration.
The Reading List application is a perfect example of integration between Microsoft hardware pieces.
Microsoft defines the Reading List as the following:
Reading List is an app where you can keep track of content you want to get back to later from the web or your favorite apps. It organizes the content you share to it in chronological order, displaying titles and images from the content so the things you’ve added to Reading List are easy to find later.
When you start the Reading List app.
Opening up the Reading List
It opens up the app and now we have a message at the top of the screen indicating that “Reading List is now available for Windows Phone!”.
The Learn more icon takes you to the reading list app page on Microsoft’s app store.
