The Settings app
The Settings app now shows a line "Recommended for Windows 10" for default apps bundled with Windows 10 every time you want to change the default app. It looks as follows:Windows 10 build 10576 default apps

A new option has appeared in the System app -> Update and security ->Windows Update. A "Learn more" link has been added. It is intended to show more info about recently installed updates. Right now, it does not work as expected and performs the search query in Bing:

Windows 10 build 10576 updates learn more linkWindows 10 build 10576 updates learn more

The search results recommend using Cortana for assistance.
The Settings app uses the following link: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=627613. You can click it yourself to try out this feature.

The Start menu
The Start menu in Windows 10 build 10576 comes with a really minor change. When you click the Power button in the Start menu, the power menu popup now occupies the whole width of the left pane. Previously, it was a narrow popup menu. For some reason, Microsoft made it wider.Windows 10 build 10576 power menu

Another Start menu feature is "Rate and review". When you right click the app or tile, you can rate it or leave a review. The appropriate context menu item is in the "More" submenu as shown below:Windows 10 build 10576 rate and review

This works only for Metro/Universal apps.

Another new option is "Share". The Share item allows you to share the selected app.Windows 10 build 10576 share start menu

These last two mentioned options require you to be logged in with a Microsoft account, at least for the Store app.

That's it. Found more changes? Let us know in the comments.

  1. I do not know if it’s only in this latest release, 10576, but while loading the Windows 10 opens a command line window of a program called ‘DiskSnapshot’, which is located in the System32 folder. There is also a configuration file where it seems to me are the folders to scan. Does anyone know anything about it?
