Today’s Windows news cycle is going to be a busy one, as Gabe Aul of the Windows team just dropped the announcement of Windows Insider Preview build 10565. We’re going over what’s new, what’s broken and what’s been fixed.
So far the Windows team is saying that for build 10565 these are the items Insiders should now find fixed:
- You should no longer see a warning message in the Settings app > Update & Security > Windows Update regarding changed ring settings for preview builds unless you actually change your ring settings.
- Background audio playback works again when apps like Groove are minimized.
- We fixed the issue where clicking on the system icons in the notification area quickly results in Windows Shell blocking the launch of fly-outs like Audio, Networking, etc.
- After Build 10525, we heard a lot of feedback that some context menus were too big for mouse. We’ve made adjustments to many of the context menus to make them smaller for using them with a mouse.
- You can now pin contacts to the Start menu from the People app.
- Certain apps won’t appear twice anymore when pinned to the taskbar.
- Hiding desktop icons via context menu on the desktop now works.
- Windows Store apps should now be updating automatically.
We’re frantically installing the new build on our testable PCs to confirm the fixes. We’ll update as we gain more knowledge on the new build.
Let us know if you can confirm the fixes for yourselves.
Happy downloading, Insiders!Further reading: build 10565, Gabe Aul, Microsoft, preview, Windows 10
