Here are all the changes in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17115 for PC

The Windows Insider MVP summit may be ongoing at Microsoft’s campus, but that does not mean there is not enough time to push out a new build. Late this morning, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 17115 for PC. This is yet another minor release, with no known issues as of yet, so here is what you need to know.

A new privacy settings layout in the set up experience:

This spring, we will release an update to Windows 10 that will include changes to the set up experience for privacy settings. This new design conveys focused information to help our customers make focused choices about their privacy and offers two new settings for Inking & Typing and Find my device.

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC:

  • We fixed an issue where If you tried to open a file that was available online-only from OneDrive that hadn’t been previously downloaded to your PC (marked with a green checkmark in File Explorer), your PC could bugcheck (GSOD).
  • We fixed an issue where post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and might have entered a reboot loop state.
  • We fixed an issue where the Microsoft Store might be completely broken or gone altogether after upgrading.
  • We fixed an issue where when you denied Movies & TV access to your videos library (through the “Let Movies & TV access your videos library?” popup window or through Windows privacy settings), Movies & TV would crash when you navigated to the “Personal” tab.
  • We fixed two issues impacting the usability of Windows Mixed Reality on the previous build (Windows Mixed Reality running at a very low frame rate (8-10fps), and a potential crash at startup that could cause Windows Mixed Reality to not work).
  • We fixed an issue from recent flights resulting the Direct Messages section of Twitter.com potentially not rendering in Microsoft Edge.
  • We fixed an issue from recent flights causing precision touchpads to periodically need a few tries to be able to move the mouse.
  • We fixed an issue impacting the Italian touch keyboard layout where the period key would act as a delete key in UWP apps.
  • We fixed an issue impacting the Czech touch keyboard layout where numbers on the &123 view couldn’t be inserted into UWP apps.
  • We fixed an issue where you couldn’t use touch to interact with the Timeline scrollbar.
  • We fixed an issue where a failed app update could result in that app becoming unpinned from the taskbar.
  • We fixed an issue where the controls in the Focus Assist Settings subpages didn’t have accessible labels.
  • We fixed an issue from the last few flights where after launching, minimizing, then closing UWP apps enough times, you would stop being able to launch UWP apps.

You can check here for more on the new privacy changes and will also update this post if Microsoft adds any known issues. But for now, fire up your Insider machines and get downloading! And as always, keep your feedback coming to Microsoft via the Feedback Hub. It will be much appreciated as the development cycle of Redstone 4 is almost winding down ahead of the Spring release.
