Insiders testing Windows 10 Preview 17692 can look forward to a steady explorer.exe experience among other fixes

For some, it definitely feels like we’re in the early stages of Windows Insider testing round. The number of known issues and fixes have seemingly outweighed the features list and todays preview of build 17692 is no different.

Here are list of fixes, general changes and improvements for Fast Ring and Skip Ahead testers downloading preview 17692.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in audio glitching on systems with lots of firewall rules.
  • We fixed an issue from the last few flights where Eye Control would fail fast and not start.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain games, such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive, to crash on launch in the last two builds.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Settings crashing when attempting to open Data Usage Settings in the last few flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in an unexpected “codecpacks.vp9” entry in the Start menu.
  • We fixed a recent issue for some Insiders resulting in an explorer.exe crash with AppXDeploymentClient.dll.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders recently experiencing a bug check (green screen) with the error SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION in afd.sys.
  • With Build 17672 we made a fix for an explorer.exe crash in structuredquery.dll – that fix stopped anyone new from encountering the crash, however we heard your reports that anyone already impacted was still impacted. Today’s build has a fix for this issue that should resolve it for anyone who was already impacted.
  • To improve discoverability, we’ve moved Delivery Optimization Settings to now be directly listed as a category under Settings > Update & Security.
  • We fixed an issue in Microsoft Edge impacting websites like Facebook.com, where when starting a message only the first contact name entered was automatically resolved while typing.
  • We fixed an issue in Microsoft Edge where if both images and text were selected, right-clicking on the image and selecting copy wouldn’t work.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Windows Security app crashing recently when adding a process to the exclusion list.

There is a lot of spot fixing that needs to occur with this particualr Windows 10 update and it looks as though the Windows 10 is slowly starting to plug the holes.
