After a very exciting tease featuring the #WINsiders4Good Nigeria Fellows, Dona Sarkar and the Windows Insider team have officially pushed out Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14971 for PC ONLY Insiders in the Fast Ring. As is routine with these builds, nothing is perfect, so without further ado, here is a look at the brief list of known issues in Build 14971.
- Navigating to Settings > System > Battery will crash the Settings app.
- Using keyboard monitor hotkeys to adjust brightness won’t work as expected. Desired brightness change could be done via the Action Center or by going to Settings > System > Display.
Apps such as Store, Photos, and People may launch on their own after your PC has been inactive for a period of time. To stop these apps from
- launching on their own, un-maximize the app before closing it.
- As we have previously announced we are working on the Windows Holographic Shell that is going to be included in the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update. In today’s flight you will see the Windows Holographic First Run app. While you will be able to launch the app and walk through the first few screens, it won’t detect any hardware. This app and the Windows Holographic Shell is still under active development here at Microsoft and with our partners.
Happy Downloading! And, As always, let us know if you have experienced any issues with this new build by dropping us a comment below!
