Before you begin celebrating the weekend, Gabe Aul and the Windows team would like Insiders to do a little testing for them. For those participating in the Windows 10 Insider Program in the Fast Ring released cycle, the Windows team has just pushed out a new build.

Build 14279 comes with the usual caveats of known issues, new items, and fixes. Below is the list of fixes identified by the Windows team.

Here’s what’s fixed for PC

  • We fixed an issue where Microsoft Edge and Cortana were crashing for users with roaming profiles.
  • We fixed an issue where Cortana would continue to show reminders that have been completed.
  • We fixed an issue where items copied/moved to the desktop would not display until the desktop is manually refreshed by right-clicking on the desktop and choosing “Refresh” or pressing F5.
  • We fixed an issue where downloading certain drivers from Windows Update was causing some PCs to bluescreen.

Looks as though those still experiencing crashes and blue screens may be able to finally breathe a slight sigh of relief, for now.

Head over to your Update Settings page to grab the new build.

Happy downloading, Insiders!
