Windows 10 2015 Fall Update

Improved Skype Experience and Major Bug Fixes  

The update will also include a new instant messaging and video calling app that will tie into Skype. These apps are already available in Windows 10 Mobile, and will have greater significance with core telephony and SMS/MMS features, along with improved Skype connectivity.

As for bug fixes, the update brings a solution for some significant bugs found in the current mainstream build. It brings a solution for the Start Menu which failed to perform when a large number of apps were installed.

Next week, when the Fall Update is released, Microsoft should be making it possible to install the newer build directly.

This means new ISOs will be released for instating it directly onto clean systems. Users with Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 will get the Fall upgrade automatically, instead of the RTM Build 10240. Moreover, executing a clean install will also be possible with existing Windows 7, 8, 8.1 license keys.
