Windows 10 Insider build 10547 is out and here are the known issues

Another day, another Windows 10 Insider build is upon us. Vice president of the WDG Engineering Systems team and Windows Insider informer, Gabe Aul has once again pushed his big red ‘build release’ button. Windows 10 Insiders can now download and update to build 10547.

Traditionally, with each new build, the Windows team manages to fix and some features while simultaneously breaking others. Thus is the nature of development, and build 10547 is no different.

According to the Windows team, these are the list of known issues with this latest build:

  • Languages packs are being published, but will be rolling out to the update servers throughout the day.
  • Windows Store apps may not update automatically. To receive app updates, open the Store, click on your profile picture at the top right, choose “Download and updates” and check for updates manually.
  • Using Notepad.exe from the command line to open files when using only a file name, such as ‘file.txt’, will fail with a permissions error. This will be fixed in a future build, but this can be worked around by using a full or partial path, such as ‘.\file.txt’, or using File->Open options in the UI. Clicking on the system icons in the notification area quickly can result in Windows Shell blocking the launch of fly-outs like Audio, Networking, etc. This can be resolved by rebooting your PC.
  • You will see a warning message in the Settings app > Update & Security > Windows Update regarding preview builds. Don’t worry about this – It is safe to ignore for now. We’re adding some new functionality to help you diagnose what’s going on if a new build isn’t getting to you, but it’s not fully implemented yet.

Well, it looks like it’s spit and polish time for Windows 10 as the fixes and additional features beginning to out-list known issues.

Happy downloading, Insiders!
