Here are the known issues, fixes, changes, improvements, and fixes in Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16232 for PC

Dona Sakar and the Windows Insider team have just pushed the big red button once again, and have unleashed the glory of a new Windows 10 build to the desktops of Fast Ring Windows Insiders. As usual, these builds are not perfect, so please have a look at the following known issues, fixes, changes, improvements, and fixes in Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16232 for PC.

Changes, improvements, and fixes for PC:

  • We fixed the issue that was causing updating to the latest build to fail and roll back to the previous build if you had the .NET 3.5 Framework installed. You should no longer need to uninstall .NET 3.5 before trying to update to this build.
  • We fixed an issue for those with certain languages installed in the last flight where ctfmon.exe would go into a crash loop, resulting in typing in the Start menu and UWP apps becoming impossible.
  • We’ve listened to feedback and in Windows Defender Security Center you will soon have the option to dismiss recommendations (yellow badged items). In this build, you will see the upcoming addition however it is under construction and not up and running yet. Stay tuned and we’ll let you know when we have it finished.
  • We fixed an issue where some games like Mass Effect 3 would crash if you used Alt + TAB after 5 minutes of game play.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Word 2016 crashing if you attempted to ink in it.
  • We fixed an issue where using the new Ctrl + Win + C hotkey to enable and disable color filters would unexpectedly open Settings.
  • We fixed an issue from the last flight where auto-complete in the URL bar of Microsoft Edge might fail on some devices – searching for a partial string instead of the autocompleted text. This fix should also address the feedback some of you were reporting where Cortana sometimes couldn’t keep up with typing on that flight and the letters would end up out of order.
  • We fixed an issue where the File Explorer Ribbon assets were blurry if the window’s DPI was not equal to the system DPI.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in apps that start with X, V or Q being incorrectly categorized in Start on Polish builds.
  • We’ve moved the new Video Playback Settings page to now be listed under the Apps category, and have fixed the issues on the page where the video and battery dropdown weren’t displaying correctly.
  • We fixed an issue with the XAML Acrylic Brush that could result in certain apps, for example Maps, occasionally crashing due to attempting to load acrylic brushes while the app was suspended.
  • We fixed a rare condition that could result in Start menu appearing to flash/flicker continuously.

Known issues for PC:

  • Your PC may fail to update to this build with an 0x80070643 and rolls back to the previous build. We are investigating.
  • We’re continuing to investigate reports that the battery status on certain laptops isn’t updating while the device is unplugged. If you think you are seeing this, please send in feedback via Feedback Hub and use the capture feature when logging your feedback so we can get your logs.
  • You may notice some of your inbox apps are now displaying a name that looks like “ms-resource:” and are listed at the bottom of Start. We’re investigating. In the meantime, the app should still launch normally, it’s only the name resource that’s impacted.
  • Some UWP apps such as Twitter will crash on launch.
  • Xbox Live in-game experiences may fail to load. These include gamer profiles, achievement details, and other dialogs that may pop up on top of an Xbox Live-enabled game.
  • Please avoid doing a PC reset via Settings > Update & security > Recovery and choosing “Remove everything”. This may put your device into a reboot loop.
  • Task Manager may hang on launch on this build.

So there you have it! Are you seeing any issues not noted by Microsoft above? As always, please do continue to submit your feedback to Microsoft, via the Feedback Hub, as it only helps make the future versions of Windows 10 less buggy and more perfect!
