Do more at once with the new Compact Overlay window. Keep watching a movie or video chat on one corner of your screen — even when switching apps to check email or browse the web. When an app window enters compact overlay mode, it’ll be shown above other windows so it won’t get blocked. Look for updates to the Movies & TV app and Skype Preview app to take advantage of this feature in the near future.

A smart way to lock your PC. Dynamic Lock automatically locks your Windows 10 PC when you’re not around, based on the proximity of your 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.
