Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16296 for PC

Windows Store rebranded to Microsoft Store in Windows 10

Microsoft has just dropped the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16296 for PC for Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. Like other recent builds, there's nothing of note in the way of new features here.

"As we mentioned previously, we are now at the point of the development cycle for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update where our focus is now on stabilization for release to the world", Microsoft's Dona Sarkar writes.

We fixed an issue where Hyper-V couldn't create a VM on 3rd party network storage.

The Microsoft Insiders build has received an update for Windows 10 that changes the name of the Windows Store app to "Microsoft Store", as well as alters its icon in the Start and Taskbar.

Fixed an issue where for the first few minutes after clean installing a non-English build many inbox app names might unexpectedly appear with English app names. This alignment could hint that Microsoft may plan to offer more than just apps, games, music, and video content in its Windows 10 store. At the moment, it appears that it is also not possible to update Windows Store on Windows 10 Mobile whereas, on PC, you can not update some first-party apps. So get ready to say goodbye to the Windows Store and hello to the Microsoft Store. Once verified, the Microsoft Store will take you to the order page within the app which looks (and works) nearly exactly like the purchasing experience on the online Microsoft Store.
