Microsoft pushed out a long-awaited Insider build for Window 10 PC today, build 14352, and as usual. the build comes with some newness to go with things fixed and not yet fixed. We’re heading into the home stretch leading to this summer’s Anniversary Update, and so we’re thinking at some point Microsoft will focus on bug fixes and stability rather than adding new features.
This time around, Microsoft seems to be doing both, adding in new features and enhancements but also handling a fairly significant list of broken items:
- Feedback Hub should now be localized properly. If you install a different language, you will need to relaunch Feedback Hub to have it show in that language.
- We fixed the issue with Intel HD Graphics 3000 or Intel HD Graphics 2000 GPUs causing rendering issues and instability with Microsoft Edge. If you mitigated this issue by using software rendering instead of GPU rendering, you can go back to GPU rendering.
- Starting with this build, pinned tabs in Microsoft Edge should no longer get lost after updating to a new Insider Preview build.
- We fixed an issue causing Surface Books to bugcheck (bluescreen) when using Windows Hello.
- We fixed an issue that caused the Brightness Quick Action to appear missing.
- This build includes fixes for Precision Touchpads. We have Improved reliability of using gestures to switch between virtual desktops. We also improved touchpad responsiveness for pans and two finger taps. We also fixed an issue where swiping on the touchpad might not wake the device once it was in Connected Standby state.
- We fixed an issue resulting in maximized UWP apps slightly overlapping the taskbar if taskbar was positioned on top.
- We fixed an issue in the Action Center where it wouldn’t show the hover state when moving your mouse over notifications if a notification had been expanded.
- We fixed an issue resulting in missing icons in Action Center when using Light mode.
- We fixed an issue resulting in “Restart Required” continuing to show in Action Center after restart has already occurred.
- Increased hit target of X icon for notifications in Action Center, to make them easier to dismiss.
- We fixed a timing issue where the Bluetooth Quick Action might appear (with state ON) for a device with no Bluetooth.
- We fixed an issue where using Esc to exit a full screen video with Microsoft Edge maximized would result in the window becoming unmaximized.
- We fixed an issue where playing mp4s from a network share in the Movies & TV app would sometimes show an “MF_E_UNSUPPORTED_BYTESTREAM_TYPE” error.
- We fixed an issue that resulted in the volume mixer slider for system sounds getting reset to 100% after receiving a notification or altering master volume.
- Update notifications to now deep link straight to Update History, rather than the Windows Update landing page in the Settings app.
- Updated the Settings app so now the CTRL + E keyboard shortcut will set focus to the Settings search box.
- We fixed an issue where theme settings were not roaming correctly to other PCs with the same Microsoft account.
- Fixed an issue resulting in the All apps list in Start being blank for certain languages
- We updated the Action Center icon to now hide unread notification count when the taskbar is using small icons, as there’s not enough space to display it.
- Fixed an issue with Command Prompt where it wasn’t keeping the current line in view after resizing the window.
- We fixed an issue that resulted in the User Account Control dialog sometimes appearing behind other windows instead of in the forefront.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the Lock screen sometimes not showing the Caps lock warning when Caps lock was on.
So, those are the things you’ll be looking forward to after you hit that update button and get this puppy installed. Let us know in the comments if you come across any other issues that seem to have been resolved.Further reading: build 14352, Microsoft, Redstone, Windows 10, Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Windows 10 Insider
