Microsoft releases new 19H1 build 18262 for Fast, Skip Ahead Insiders

Microsoft has just released the latest Windows 10 Insider build for Fast Ring and Skip Ahead builds for the upcoming 19H1 update to the operating system. In the build, Microsoft has included an option to see which of your running apps are DPI Aware, adding a column to Task Manager so “you can find out the DPI awareness per process.”

The new build also adds to the list of preinstalled Windows 10 inbox apps you’re now able to uninstall via right clicking the Start Menu All Apps list:

3D Viewer (previously called Mixed Reality Viewer)
Calculator
Calendar
Groove Music
Mail
Movies & TV
Paint 3D
Snip & Sketch
Sticky Notes
Voice Recorder

In the Windows 10 October 2018 Update and prior, only the following inbox apps could be uninstalled via the context menu on the Start menu All Apps list:

Microsoft Solitaire Collection
My Office
OneNote
Print 3D
Skype
Tips
Weather

18262 adds the beginnings of some improved capabilities for Troubleshooting problems on your PC, so you don’t have to “manually walk through all the steps” to resolve an issue:

We hear your feedback that the time that takes to do can be frustrating – why not just automatically fix issues that you know how to fix and can detect? We agree! If an issue occurs we want to get you back up and running as quickly as possible, so with Build 18262 you’ll find a new recommended troubleshooting setting under Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot in Build 18262. This feature uses diagnostic data you send to deliver a tailored set of fixes matching problems we detect on your device and will automatically apply them to your PC.

We’re still hard at work on this feature so it’s greyed out right now in Settings, but stay tuned for updates in future builds!

And finally, 18262 adds improvements to Narrator. You can read all about the latest build on the Windows Experience blog post, and of course, get to downloading now!
