Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 build 16296 for PC for Slow Ring Insiders

Last week, Microsoft dropped the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16296 for PC for Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. The build is now available for Slow Ring Insiders as well, yet it is not available for Skip Ahead users.

Here’s a list of what’s improved or fixed in this build:

  • We fixed an issue where Hyper-V couldn’t create a VM on 3rd party network storage.
  • We fixed an issue where for the first few minutes after clean installing a non-English build many inbox app names might unexpectedly appear with English app names.
  • We fixed an issue where gaming apps using WebView with heavy use of HTML canvas might have unexpectedly had very low FPS in recent flights.

Microsoft warns users that they will not be able to install *new*/additional language packs on this build. So, if that’s something you’re interested in, stay clear of this one. However, pre-existing language packs will carry over and work just fine.

Microsoft has clearly reached towards the end of the development cycle for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and any new builds to Insiders now are with a focus on stabilization and include mostly bug fixes.
