Fast Ring PC Insiders are warned of a few Known Issues for Windows 10 Preview 17107
Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17107 slipped in under the radar for most as most tester prepared for the weekend, but, just like getting a new package delivered, many will want to unwrap, download and install the new release immediately.

As this preview drops right before the weekend, Insiders are given a few cautions about some known issues, that most likely won’t be addressed by the Windows team this weekend or before the next release.
- Buttons on the Game bar are not centered correctly.
- Selecting a notification after taking a screenshot or game clip opens the Xbox app’s home screen instead of opening the screenshot or game clip.
- Post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices have experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and may enter a reboot loop state. For affected PCs, turning off fast boot may bypass the issue. If not, it is necessary to create a bootable ISO on a USB drive, boot into recovery mode, and this will allow bypass.
- Tearing a PDF tab in Microsoft Edge will result in a bug check (GSOD).
Fortunately, the list isn’t daunting and much of it can be avoided by simply arming oneself with a $7 flash drive with a free downloaded copy of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
