Windows 10 Refresh Tool recently poped-up under Microsoft downloads, helps Windows Insiders to clean install Windows 10. The tool though appearing under official download, has not yet been officially announced.

The news about the tool first came last month on May 12 from a Microsoft Answers community moderator, who had then revealed that the company is working on introducing a new tool which will help users perform a clean install of Windows 10 on their devices.

"Want a simple and easy way to start fresh with a clean installation of Windows? Looking for an easy way to do this? We're working on a tool to make this possible. Final testing and validation is underway and we will want your feedback once it is ready to go! Stay tuned for additional information as we work through the finishing touches," Jason said.

So, what the tool can do for you, simple, "when you run this tool, it allows you to install a clean copy of the most recent version of Windows 10 and remove apps that were installed on your PC. You can keep personal files only or delete everything."

The download link of the tool is now first spotted by WalkingCat, is available to be downloaded here.

In other Windows 10 news, Microsoft Edge is now able to support for TCP Fast Open. It's currently available behind an about:flags setting in Windows Insider Preview builds, starting with EdgeHTML 14.14361 and higher.

TCP Fast Open gives the opportunity for Edge to turn down the round trip time (RTT) of encrypted data exchanged through the network. "With TCP Fast Open, TLS False Start, and TLS 1.3, we can improve both performance and security," notes Edge dev team.

TCP Fast Open is currently off by default in Microsoft Edge, and can be managed under setting by navigating to about:flags in the address bar.

"We know performance and security matter to our users and we're committed to move from 1-RTT to 0-RTT experience in Microsoft Edge through HTTP 2.0, TLS 1.3, TCP Fast Open, and TLS False Start," the team added.

In addition, also rolled out some enterprise-specific enhancements and tweaks to the Windows 10 version of IE11 to Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 users as well.

First up, there is added support for a new v.2 Enterprise Mode XML schema, which the team says "is simpler, cleaner, more scalable, and to help ease list management."

Also, the Enterprise Mode Site List Manager tool is updated, now "allowing you to import an existing v.1 XML file and automatically convert it to the v.2 XML schema."

Additionally, the team also added support for HTTP ports, and the new about:compat page in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 to better manage their Enterprise Mode Site List.
