Microsoft this afternoon announced the release of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19035. This time, this build is being pushed to both the Fast ring and the Slow ring. There isn’t much new changed with this new build, but there are some changes, improvements, and fixes that you need to know of.
Starting first with the changes, it’s worth noting that Microsoft has now completed the earlier experiment related to how they deliver updates through Windows Update. If you have a device that was part of the experiment, you’ll no longer see the Optional Updates link under Settings > Windows Update. Importantly, this also resolves an issue where after successfully installing printer drivers from the Optional Updates section, the same driver is still showing as available for install. Other changes can be seen below.
- We fixed an issue that could result in fingerprint (if enabled) sometimes unexpectedly not being offered as a sign-in option after waking your device from sleep.
- We fixed an issue that could result in certain apps not launching the first time you tried after resetting the app via Settings.
- Thank you for all the feedback you provided on the Store version of Notepad. At this time, we’ve decided not to roll this out to customers. Insiders may notice some changes as we remove this change from this build:
If you pinned Notepad to your Taskbar or Start menu, you will need to re-pin after you upgrade to this new build.
If you had certain file types set to open in Notepad by default, you will see a prompt when you try to open files of that type again and will need to re-select Notepad.
As usual, there are also some known issues with this release. First off, Insiders have reported that when attempting to install recent builds, setup rolls back and returns error code 0xc1900101. If you experience this, Microsoft wants you to report the issue on the Feedback Hub. The issue with BattlEye anti-cheat software is still persisting in this release too, and some devices will have a compatibility hold as a result. Other known issues are below.
- We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- We’re looking into reports of certain external USB 3.0 drives not responding with Start Code 10 after they’re attached.
- We’ve received reports of the Optimize Drives app incorrectly reporting that optimization has never run on SSD devices.
Once you’ve updated to this build, we’ll like to remind you that you can check out the #25DaysOfWIP on Twitter.
