Microsoft pushes Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14372 to the Slow Ring

Today, Microsoft is pushing build 14372 to Windows Insider’s on the Slow Ring. This build is available on both PC and Mobile.

Released just 5 days ago, it seems like the Slow Ring isn’t so slow anymore, but more like it is trotting behind the Fast Ring after each new build. Before you go ahead and start updating your devices, let’s take a look at what’s new, improved, fixed and what is still broken in build 14372:

Windows 10 PC

As we are now very close to the launch of the Anniversary Update, there aren’t many new features coming into the more recent builds, but a new extension for Edge did pop-up:

  • Evernote Web Clipper for Microsoft Edge: Clip the web pages you want to keep. Save them in Evernote and easily find them on any device. Visit our extensions page at the Microsoft Edge Dev website to learn more and try it out for yourself.

There are just a few known issues with this build on PC:

  • Clicking on networks or VPN connections in the network flyout on the taskbar doesn’t launch the network settings page like it should.
  • There are a few known issues with the Evernote Web Clipper extension for Microsoft Edge. The Evernote Web Clipper might not load on certain websites and there is no thumbnail image when clipping bookmarks. There are also various visual issues.
  • When you enable Developer Mode in this build, you will receive an error message because the necessary package needs from Windows Update isn’t being published appropriately. This will prevent you from using Device Portal. We’re working to get this fixed as soon as possible. You can still F5 deploy apps from Visual Studio to your PC.

Some unspecified fixes also arrived in this build – it’s up to you to work out what’s been fixed this time around.

Windows 10 Mobile

Nothing new for mobile in this build, there are some unspecified fixes, as well as some known issues on mobile, too:

  • We have changed the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.
  • We’ve heard you and we are investigating decreases in battery life on older devices such as the Lumia 830, 930, and 1520 (devices with SoC 8974 chipsets).
  • We’re investigating Wi-Fi disconnect issues – if you are experiencing an issue with your Wi-Fi disconnecting, please see this forum post and make sure to upvote Wi-Fi disconnecting issues in the Feedback Hub.

The update may not show up straight away, as Microsoft notes that due to several internal builds being tested, there have been some delays in rolling the build out.
