Windows 10 Build 14352 lets Windows Insiders run two antivirus programs on their PC

You can now request specific songs of Cortana, and record more games using the built-in Game Bar.

Historically, security experts have warned against running multiple antimalware programs at any one time. It’s unclear whether Limited Periodic Scanning—which can be toggled off—will cause any additional headaches, or prove to be a good thing. 

Let other gamers (or workers) look over your shoulder

The Windows Game Bar is one of the more overlooked features of Windows 10. It’s a quick way to save a game clip or screenshot and then boast about kicking butt in a popular game by sharing it using the Xbox app. The kicker is that if Windows doesn’t recognize your app as a game, you won’t be able to share it on Xbox Live.

With Build 14352, Game Bar support has been added for a number of popular games: League of LegendsWorld of WarcraftDOTA 2Battlefield 4Counterstrike: Global Offensive, and Diablo III. 

Finally, Microsoft updated the Feedback Hub with a bit more, well, feedback. Previously, if you submitted an idea or complaint, Microsoft automatically attached a “received” tag to your idea—which didn’t really give you any feedback as to whether your bright idea to change the default Windows fault to Comic Sans was either brilliant or the latest joke to grace the department fridge. Now, Microsoft will tag responses as well as provide a “Microsoft response” with more information about what the team is actually doing with your feedback.
