Today Microsoft released Insider Preview Build 16291 for PC to insiders on the fast ring that includes the ability for Cortana to transfer the current spot you are on in news articles or news listings to your PC. This allows you to read an article on your phone and then continue reading it on your computer from where you left off.

Otherwise, this is just a general fix build as the team gets ready for the release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

What’s new in Build 16291

Resume from phones to PC with Cortana: Cortana users can now resume articles, news from their iPhones and Android phones to PC from within the Cortana app. This exciting feature comes in addition to the existing features where users can sync reminders, notifications and SMS across their devices and stay connected on the go!

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

  • We fixed an issue where scrolling with touch or precision touchpads wasn’t working with the F12 Developer Tools.
  • We fixed an issue where pin reset above lock (“I forgot my PIN”) would only work the first time the password was reset.
  • We fixed an issue where Microsoft Edge would crash if you added a Favorite to a Favorites folder and then immediately sorted that folder by name.
