Issues with Windows Mixed Reality, fixes for OneNote, touch keyboard highlight Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17120

Early this morning Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17120 for PC. As always, this build is not perfect, but it does pack some improvements and a few known issues with Windows Mixed Reality which you need to take note of. Here’s what you need to know.

Known Issues:

  • With this build, the Windows Mixed Reality Team would like to let you know about a few known issues as you try out the new Windows Mixed Reality features:
  • We’re investigating reports of a performance regression for Windows Mixed Reality on hybrid laptops on this build.
  • In some cases, the inbox apps will fail to load inside of Windows Mixed Reality and newly placed Holograms may be empty. Restarting Windows Mixed Reality should resolve both issues.
  • Windows Mixed Reality will crash if you launch the Store from Movies & TV, and then close both apps.
  • The ambient sound in Skyloft is louder than it should be.
  • On laptops with hybrid GPUs the video doesn’t render for 360 videos rendered directly in the Edge app although you can still hear the sound.
  • The 360 viewer fails to launch from the Store app when you click on the “Launch” button after installing the 360 Viewer Edge extension. To workaround manually launch Edge and then enable the 360 Viewer extension.

General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC:

  • When a process in Task Manager is suspended, or has suspended child processes, you’ll now see an icon indicating as much in the Status column of the Processes tab.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the UAC dialog potentially not rendering correctly in the last few flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in OneNote crashing when using touch to drag and drop elements in recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the touch keyboard crashing when focus was moved to certain password fields.
  • We’ve improved the performance of Bluetooth mice when the system is under load.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Amharic keyboard not working in Win32 apps.

Microsoft will be adding more known issues as they are reported, so be sure to install this build and keep the feedback coming via the Feedback Hub. Happy downloading, and do let us know how this new build is working by dropping us a comment below.
