Time to take our coverage of Windows 10 Mobile Build 10136 forward. Build 10136 brings many cool new features and changes and we have covered some listed and unlisted changes in our earlier articles. All you can read by clicking here.
The Build 10136 also brings the control over background apps and notifications back and some enhancements as well.
- Notifications UI has changed and it is now all toggles to control what notifications you want. Settings–>System–>Notifications & Actions.
- The Battery Saver settings has got the options to control background apps back. Go to Settings–>System–>Battery Saver
- Tap on Battery use and you will be able to see all the apps that run in background. Tapping on any app takes you to detailed settings, where you can chose whether the app runs in background or even when Battery Saver is on
- Tap on Battery saver settings and you will be taken to the second screenshot below, where you can also allow push notifications from apps when the Battery Saver is on and you can also add apps that can run in background when battery saver is on. So this is an alternate way to add or control app that runs in background when battery saver is on.
- The third screenshot below can be accessed from privacy settings. Settings—>Privacy–>Background apps. So one more place to control which apps run in background. Microsoft may streamline the whole process in coming builds we think.
