Microsoft has released a number of fixes and expanded Windows 10 Insider builds today for PC and mobile, offering up a number of fixes to bring all of the various builds up to snuff and available on more devices. One of the releases is KB3158988, which adds in some fixes for a number of issues in the recently released build 14342.

Here’s Microsoft’s take:

UPDATE 5/18: Today we are releasing Build 14342 to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring. With this build, Insiders in the Slow ring can check out the new features coming with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update including Windows Ink, updated Start, and more. We are also releasing an update for this build (KB3158988) that fixes the issue that occurs where you can’t close Microsoft Edge or get context menus to work if you turn off all extensions without uninstalling them. It also includes a couple of fixes for some issues causing some devices to bugcheck (Bluescreen). ISOs coming soon!

So, there you have it. Go hit that update button if you’re running Windows 10 Insider build 14342, and let us know in the comments if any of these fixes are meaningful for you. (Author’s note: my Surface Pro 4 has been experiencing multiple bluescreens a day since I installed build 14342. Hopefully this update fixes things up.)
