Microsoft has just announced the release of the Windows 10 Preview build 20152 for Windows Insider in the Dev Channel (previously Fast Ring), and this is once again a minor update with four new fixes. Despite the big jump in the build number with last week’s build 20150, there are still no new features in sight for the Fast Ring, though we hope that this will change soon.
In the meantime, here are the fixes and known issues for the build 20152:
- We fixed an issue that could result in Notepad unexpectedly being removed after resetting your PC. If you were impacted by this, you can reinstall Notepad via Optional Features in Settings.
- We fixed an issue where the “Windows needs space to continue” dialog might have told you to select Continue but no Continue button was displayed.
- We fixed an issue that could result in the Windows Update icon unexpectedly not appearing in the notification area of the taskbar when an update was ready for reboot.
- We fixed an issue that could result in an IME typing as if it was ON, when it was actually in OFF state, and tapping the IME mode indicator in the taskbar wouldn’t change the mode.
- We’re working on a fix for an issue causing some systems to crash with a HYPERVISOR_ERROR bugcheck.
- We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- We’re aware of an issue where Notepad might fail to reopen files which were automatically saved during a PC restart (if that option is enabled in Settings). Documents can be recovered from %localappdata%\Notepad.
- Some Insiders may experience a bugcheck and rollback when attempting to update to this build if an Xbox controller is connected to your device. You may see error code 0xc1900101 in Windows Update History. To work around the issue, disconnect or unpair the Xbox controller to successfully update. (Please note that reconnecting the controller after the update will result in a bugcheck.)
- Starting with the last build, some games and applications may crash at launch or fail to install. We’ve identified the root cause and are working on a fix for a future flight.
- We’re investigating reports of the screen becoming dimmer after upgrading to the previous build.
- We’re aware of an issue where Task Manager reports 0.00 GHz CPU usage in the Performance tab.
- We’re working on a fix for an issue causing Reset this PC to always show the error “There was a problem resetting this PC” when launched from Settings. To work around the issue, use Advanced Startup (Windows RE) to start Reset this PC.
As Dev Channel Insiders keep continue to get builds that are not labeled “21H1,” Microsoft finally discussed the “20H2” update for Windows 10 last week and released a first preview build for the Beta channel (Slow Ring) . If 20H2 is expected to be another minor update, we hope to soon see new experimental features in the Dev Channel that may or may not ship in the 21H1 update next year.
