Microsoft has just released another minor update for Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring. The 20H1 preview build 18922 brings a revamped Language Settings page that should be easier to navigate, and Microsoft has also reorganized the language installation page to add some useful descriptions.
Starting with this build, Microsoft is also rolling out a new Find Similar Feedback feature in Feedback Hub: After logging any new feedback, Windows Insiders will be able to browse similar items and even link their feedback to existing contributions from other Insiders.
This new 20H1 build also brings several bug fixes, and it addresses two specific Windows Update issues preventing some Insiders to install recent builds. You can check out everything that’s fixed and still broken in this build below:
General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
- We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders getting Windows Update error 0x80010105 when updating to recent builds.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders getting Windows Update error 0xc0000005 when updating to recent builds.
- We fixed an issue where the Action Center background was unexpectedly opaque in the quick action section.
- We fixed an issue where if you used the spacebar to switch to a different Focus assist state in Settings, keyboard focus would unexpectedly jump to the Have a Question? Section.
- We fixed an issue with the Bopomofo IME where the character width would suddenly change to Full width from Half width.
- We’ve added a tip to the Bopomofo IME settings that Ctrl + Space can be used for toggling conversation mode.
- We fixed an issue where, when using the Japanese IME with Excel, if you’d turned off Japanese input-mode by clicking the input-mode indicator, the input-mode would revert back to “Hiragana” every time focus moved to another cell.
- Based on feedback, we’ve updated the Chinese Pinyin IME settings to now refer to Default mode, rather than Input mode.
- We fixed an issue for some of the Insiders with the updated File Explorer search experience, resulting in suggested results in the search dropdown not responding when clicked. Thanks for reporting this!
- We’ve made a few small design tweaks to the updated Windows Ink Workspace, including changing the overflow menu button to new use an ellipsis icon. Note – this feature update is still in the process of rolling out.
- We’re now starting to roll out the updated Settings header again after addressing an issue with the OneDrive entry – appreciate your patience!
- This update might fail the first time you try to download it with a 0xc0000409 error code.
- For Home editions, some devices might not be able to see the “download progress %” change on the Windows Update page.
- There has been an issue with older versions of anti-cheat software used with games where after updating to the latest 19H1 Insider Preview builds may cause PCs to experience crashes. We are working with partners on getting their software updated with a fix, and most games have released patches to prevent PCs from experiencing this issue. To minimize the chance of running into this issue, please make sure you are running the latest version of your games before attempting to update the operating system. We are also working with anti-cheat and game developers to resolve similar issues that may arise with the 20H1 Insider Preview builds and will work to minimize the likelihood of these issues in the future.
- Some Realtek SD card readers are not functioning properly. We are investigating the issue.
- Tamper Protection may be turned off in Windows Security after updating to this build. You can turn it back on. In August, Tamper Protection will return to being on by default for all Insiders.
- We’re investigating an issue where some users are reporting that File Explorer search is rendering in an unexpectedly small area and clicking it results in a crash.
Known issues for Developers
- If you install builds from the Fast ring and switch to either the Slow ring or the Release Preview ring, optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.
As a little sidenote, the Windows Insider team previously said in February that it would release the first 19H2 to Windows Insiders "later this Spring," but it looks like this won't be happening after all. Spring is ending in just two days, and Brandon Leblanc from the Windows Insider team shared on Twitter that there won't be any news about 19H2 builds this week.
Nothing new to share this week sorry!

19H2 is expected to be a minor Windows 10 update ahead of the release of 20H1 in the first half of 2020, but 19H2 may well have a much shorter testing process compared to previous releases. We hope the Windows Insider team will soon share more details, but for now you probably shouldn't get too excited about the upcoming 19H2 update.
