  1. Microsoft releases new Windows Insider program website Microsoft recently announced the release of revamped Windows Insider program website. The new website is redesigned to be more user-friendly and accessible. Microsoft mentioned that this new Windows Insider website will be your one-stop shop to learn everything about the program. The Windows Insider Program is a community of millions of Windows’ biggest fans who get to be the first to see what’s next. Windows Insiders run previews of the platform, called Windows 10 Insider Preview Builds, then give feedback and engage directly with Windows engineers to help shape the future of Windows. You can visit the Windows Insider program website to learn about the latest Windows 10 build available in different channels, links to register for the program and more. For now, the new website is only available in en-us, English. Microsoft is planning to release the website in other languages in early 2021. You can check out the new Windows Insider program website here. Microsoft releases new Windows Insider program website
  2. Microsoft's new Windows Insider channels are going live today Two weeks ago, Microsoft announced more big changes to the Windows Insider Program. It's ditching the Fast, Slow, and Release Preview rings and replacing them with the Dev, Beta, and Release Preview channels. Today, those changes are going live. The way that the program works isn't changing though. It's really just changing the names of things to make them more accurate to what the Insider Program has become. With the Fast and Slow rings, the names implied a particular cadence to how often you'd get new builds, and that hasn't been the case for a while. The Dev channel is for prerelease builds. These are the big builds that Microsoft pushes out every week with new features. They're not tied to a feature update (they are tied to a development branch, but that's neither here nor there) until they get to a build number that gets promoted to the Beta channel. Once it's in the Beta channel, it will be serviced until it should be ready for release, and then it will be promoted to the Release Preview channel for final testing before general availability. Again, that's how the Windows Insider Program has already been working for a while now, only with the Fast and Slow rings instead of Dev and Beta. The new channels are simply meant to be more accurate, thanks to the way that the program has changed over the years. Microsoft's new Windows Insider channels are going live today
  3. Hello Windows Insiders, today we’re releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19603 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. You can check out our Windows Insider Program documentation here, including a list of all the new features and updates released in builds so far. Not seeing any of the features in this build? Check your Windows Insider Settings to make sure you’re on the Fast ring. Submit feedback here to let us know if things weren’t working the way you expected. If you want a complete look at what build is in which Insider ring, head over to Flight Hub. Please note, there will be a slight delay between when a build is flighted and when Flight Hub is updated. What’s new in Build 19603 File Explorer Integration in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) If you have WSL installed and open up File Explorer, you’ll see a familiar face! We’ve had the ability to access your Linux files since Windows 1903, but now you can easily get to them from your left-hand navigation pane in File Explorer. Selecting the Linux icon will show you a view of all your distros, and selecting those will place you in the Linux root file system for that distro. User cleanup recommendations in Storage Settings Free up disk space with this Storage Settings feature that gathers unused files and apps so you can digitally cleanse your device. Windows cannot predict whether you want to delete personal files, uninstall apps, or remove local copies of files synced to the cloud. With this tool, all the content is gathered in one page and removable by you with a few clicks. Other updates for Insiders Introducing Microsoft News Bar (Beta) We would love to get your early feedback from Insiders on a new news consumption app for Windows 10. This News Bar brings you the latest news from the Microsoft News network of over 4,500 publishers across the globe. It’s there to keep you up to date when you need it, how you need it, and where you need it. You can customize the experience to make it just right for you. If you need to focus, minimize it with a click, and bring it back when you’re ready. A few cool things about this app: Stories are continuously updated throughout the day. Hover for quick access or select to get the full story. Provides News and Stocks today, with Weather and Sports coming in the future. Highly configurable, allowing you to place it on the side you want it, change the background color, change the appearance of what is shown, and which country you want the news from. Supports dark and light themes in Windows 10. Supports Multiple Monitors. The News Bar is only available for your Windows 10 PC. Get the News Bar here. Give it a try and let us know how we can make it better! Raw Image Extension now supports Canon CR3 format Support for Canon’s latest CR3 raw format has been a popular request ever since the Raw Image Extension was announced and then released to the store in 2019. If you’ve been waiting for this feature, we have good news for you. The latest version of the extension (1.0.307610.0) that’s now flighting to Windows Insiders includes support for Canon CR3 files, increased camera support, and several bug fixes. Check out this libraw.org documentation for a complete list of supported cameras. Please note that GoPro raw camera format (.GPR) is still not supported. Here is how to try this out: If you have a previous version of the extension installed on your device, first you should confirm if your current installation has been automatically updated to the latest version (version 1.0.307610.0). Use these steps: Go to Settings > Apps. Search for and select Raw Image Extension. Select Advanced options from under the name of the extension. If the displayed version number on the Advanced options page is 1.0.307610.0 or later, then you are up to date. Otherwise, search for Raw Image Extension from the Store app to go the app page. If you’d previously installed the app on your device, the update should start automatically. If not, select the Update button or if the app wasn’t already installed on the device, select Get, followed by the Install Note: This version is currently only available to Windows Insiders. We would love to get your feedback. Please send your feedback through Feedback Hub under the Devices and Drivers > Video Playback category. General changes & improvements Going forward, services that are implemented by binaries residing in the user profiles will be persisted on upgrades. Narrator will no longer automatically enable scan mode when interacting with the Ideas pane in Excel. In the new Microsoft Edge, Narrator now automatically enables scan mode and starts reading webpages. Fixes We are removing the known issue for incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. If you run into issues playing games that use BattlEye anti-cheat software, please submit feedback on these issues to us via Feedback Hub. We fixed an issue causing webcams to not function correctly when attempting to make a video call in Microsoft Teams. We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing a green screen citing an error with mssecflt.sys when starting safe mode on recent builds. We fixed an issue resulting in the WIN + PrtScn keyboard shortcut no longer saving a picture to file. We fixed several reported stability issues with Narrator, including a fix where it will no longer crash when selecting text in scan mode with new Edge when remote operations are off. We fixed an issue leading to the Narrator Quick Start guide crashing while traversing it with Narrator. We fixed an issue where the EXE property information was incomplete in Task Manager for EoAExperiences.exe. We fixed an issue resulting in some devices experiencing a bugcheck (GSOD) during the reboot to install an update. We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing a sporadic bugcheck (GSOD) with the error CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED. We fixed a bugcheck with error KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED some Insiders were experiencing when trying to sign out from the current user. We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders receiving driver compatibility warnings when trying to update to a newer build in certain virtual environments. We fixed an issue that led to inaccurate size estimates for disk cleanup when the option to clean up old Windows installation files was included. We fixed an issue where Storage settings would say the option to clean old Windows installation files wasn’t available, because it had been automatically removed after a certain number of days, when actually you had manually selected to remove it. We fixed an issue that could result in Settings crashing when navigating to Network & Internet for some Insiders. We fixed an issue where you would see a notification from the Shared Experiences page saying your account needed fixing, however the Fix Now option on the page wouldn’t work. We fixed an issue where if the Cortana icon was turned off on the taskbar, it might still partially display on secondary monitors. We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to drag and drop files into the root of a network share folder. We fixed an issue where the IME context menu wouldn’t appear when pressing Shift+F10 if the display language was something other than English. We fixed an issue that could result in IMEs created for Amharic and Sinhala to not input text until rebooting your PC. We fixed a crash some Insiders were encountering when switching window focus while an IME candidate pane was open. Known issues We are aware Narrator and NVDA users that seek the latest release of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium may experience some difficulty when navigating and reading certain web content. Narrator, NVDA and the Edge teams are aware of these issues. Users of legacy Microsoft Edge will not be affected. NVAccess has released a NVDA 2019.3 that resolves the known issue with Edge. We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build. The Documents section under Privacy has a broken icon (just a rectangle). Sticky Notes windows can’t be moved on the desktop. As a workaround, when you set focus to Sticky Notes, press Alt + Space. This will bring up a menu that contains a Move option. Select it, then use either the arrow keys or the mouse to move the window. We’re investigating reports that app icons in the taskbar are having rendering issues, including defaulting to the .exe icon. We’re investigating reports that the battery icon on the lock screen always shows close to empty, regardless of actual battery levels. We’re investigating reports of IIS configuration being set to default after taking a new build. You will need to back up your IIS configuration and restore it after the new build is installed successfully. Language packs may fail to install on this build. This is most impactful for anyone who chooses to reset their PC – the language packs you have prior to upgrading will persist. Anyone impact by this may notice some parts of the UI don’t display in your preferred language. Windows Insider Blog
  4. Hello Windows Insiders, today we’re releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19536 to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. The Fast ring going forward Back in early November, we announced that Windows Insiders who had opted into Skip Ahead would be migrated back into the Fast ring with the goal of providing everyone in the Fast ring the freshest builds at the same time. With today’s flight—we’re excited to put that plan into motion! Internally, our engineers work in development cycles with various milestones. The active development branch (called “RS_PRERELEASE”) is where the teams check in all their latest code changes into the OS. Moving forward, the Fast ring will receive builds directly from this active development branch and new features will show up in these builds first. While features in the active development branch may be slated for a future Windows 10 release, they are no longer matched to a specific Windows 10 release. This means that builds from the active development branch simply reflect the latest work in progress code from our engineers. New features and OS improvements done in this branch during these development cycles will show up in future Windows 10 releases when they are ready. And we may deliver these new features and OS improvements as full OS build updates or servicing releases. We heard the feedback from Insiders in the Fast ring loud and clear that the way we were doing Skip Ahead was a little confusing and frustrating for those who didn’t get a chance to opt-in before the limit was reached. With the changes mentioned above, Insiders in the Fast ring will always receive builds with the freshest code from our engineers regardless of branching off for a specific release. Everyone in the Fast ring is always moving forward! What’s new in Build 19536 Optional Drivers We’re still working on making it easier for you to see all optional updates (including drivers, feature updates, and monthly non-security quality updates) in one place. When optional updates are detected, they will be listed under Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > View optional updates. For drivers, you no longer need to browse Device Manager for a specific device to update. Windows Update will automatically keep your drivers up to date, but if you’re having a problem, one of those optional drivers might help. Re-releasing the updated Korean IME During 19H1 development, we’d started work on an updated version of the Korean IME as part of our ongoing efforts to modernize and improve your typing experience in Windows. Based on feedback, we decided not to ship this with 19H1, and instead worked on further improving the experience first. With Build 19528, we’re re-releasing the updated IME, along with some improvements that help it work better with various apps. To recap the most noticeable changes included as part of this IME work: For those who’re familiar with typing in Korean when writing in Hanja, we have a new candidate selection window that uses modern controls and clearer typography: The new IME version also comes with an updated algorithm used for text prediction when writing Korean using the touch keyboard. Text suggestions should now be more accurate and relevant to what you are writing. Family group setup Microsoft has family features that span across multiple platforms, like Windows, Xbox, and Android. On Windows, you can set things up for your family, like screen time limits, content filters, have kids ask before they buy things, or even stay organized with a shared family calendar, OneNote, and Office 365 Home subscription. If you share a device with family, it’s easy to get their account set up in a family group to take advantage of all these features. In this build, we want to help customers set up their device to be used by multiple people in their family. While we’re not releasing an ISO for this build, some Insiders who choose to reset their PC may see a screen during setup that asks who’ll be using the device. If they select People in my family, we’ll help them get set up in a family group once they get to their desktop, so that they’re ready to get started with all the features. If you see this new page, let us know what you think by going to Security and Privacy > Child accounts and family settings in the Feedback Hub.

This feature will gradually roll out to Windows Insiders on the Windows 10 May 2019 Update or newer, so it may take a few days to be available inside the Your Phone app. Please make sure you have the latest versions of Your Phone Companion and the Your Phone app to experience this feature. Phone screen now supports pen input The Phone screen feature is getting a boost. In addition to keyboard, mouse, and touch support, you can now use your digital pen with a compatible stylus to input on any touch screen enabled Windows 10 PC to interact with your mobile apps while in Phone screen session. Leverage your pen’s pressure sensitivity for drawing and writing like you would with your phone’s stylus with apps that support pressure sensitivity. You will also be able to hover over buttons, and it differentiates between the pen and finger touch. This feature is available to all Windows Insiders on Windows 10 October 2018 Update or newer and requires Phone screen compatible devices. We value your feedback, so give it a try and let us know what you think. You can report any issues under Your Phone > Settings > Send feedback or directly through Feedback Hub. Pen Input Requirements: Your Phone App version 1.19102.500.0 or newer Phone screen compatible devices Calls—Fifth hero feature now gradually rolling out to all users Thank you Insiders for your valuable feedback over the last few months to help improve the quality, performance, and user experience of the Calls feature, which originally rolled out in October. We are thrilled to announce that this feature is now ready and gradually rolling out to everyone. You don’t have to split your attention between your phone and PC to answer those phone calls. With the Your Phone Calls feature, tap into your PC’s speakers, microphone, and larger screen for a richer calling experience. Effortlessly transfer calls between your devices for privacy or when you are on the go. Detailed capabilities include: Answering incoming phone calls on your PC.

As a reminder, the Your Phone app has evolved over the past few months and now provides you with instant access to your recent photos, apps, texts, notifications, calls, and more on your PC. You don’t have to split your attention between your devices or break away from your PC workflows. Give this app a try and let us know what you think! General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC Whether you want to increase your productivity, decrease your stress levels, or just free up some mental space, Microsoft To Do makes it easy to plan your day and manage your life. If you are opening To Do for the first time, you may notice some new UI that helps ensure you have the latest version of To Do installed. You will only see this the first time you open the app, and users who already have To Do installed will not see this step at all. Windows RE (Recovery Environment) no longer requires an administrator password to access recovery tools. We’ve updated the new File Explorer search experience to enable you to remove previous searches via an option if you right click the entry in the dropdown. We fixed an issue resulting in the first character of your query getting dropped when “automatically type into the search box” File Explorer setting was enabled. We fixed an issue that could result in unexpectedly needing to re-download the whole game when an update to your installed game came via the store. We fixed an issue that could result in Task Manager’s icon not appearing in the notification area of the taskbar even though it had been enabled in Settings. We fixed an issue that could result in Resource Manager getting stuck and not showing any disk activity. We fixed an issue with the Vietnamese Telex keyboard where after typing an upper-case letter in certain apps, Ctrl+A would stop working in that app. We fixed an issue where creating a new storage pool in the UI would fail with incorrect parameter. We fixed an issue where after dragging the bottom of a UWP app up to resize it, any further resizing actions from the bottom wouldn’t work. With this build, users who had previously used HomeGroup will no longer see a notification on upgrade about its deprecation. We fixed a typo in the text under Settings > Search > Searching Window. We’re working on adding Downloads Folder to your Privacy Settings options, and you’ll see it in today’s flight. More details will be shared later. We fixed an issue where if your device was offline, Narrator would still announce that language features were available to download when you navigated to the per-language options under Language Settings. We fixed an issue that could result in no tooltip with the full text appearing in Settings when hovering over text truncated with an ellipsis. We’re removing the separate Hotspot 2.0 setting under Wi-Fi. This setting was provided while the feature was still in experimental phase, and having it enabled is now part of having Wi-Fi enabled. We fixed an issue that could result in the Bluetooth battery level displayed in Settings getting stuck and thus reducing accuracy. We fixed an issue where if you rolled back the build you were on, Windows Update might still list the older build number under Update History. Known issues BattlEye and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. To safeguard Insiders who might have these versions installed on their PC, we have applied a compatibility hold on these devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview. See this article for details. We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build. We’re looking into reports of certain external USB 3.0 drives not responding with Start Code 10 after they’re attached. The Optimize Drives Control Panel is incorrectly reporting that optimization has never run on some devices. Optimization is completing successfully, even though it is not reflected in the UI. The Documents section under Privacy has a broken icon (just a rectangle). Share your desktop experience directly with our engineers If you’re a regular user of Windows, Office 365, Microsoft Edge, SharePoint—or all four—we’d like to talk with you about your experience at an upcoming research event. Organized by Microsoft User Research, this voluntary, online event is a unique opportunity to talk one-on-one with our Microsoft engineers and help guide future development—so you can do even more on your PC, faster and more efficiently.

  5. Today Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19013 (20H1) to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring. Till now Slow Ring users were only receiving Windows 10 19H2 builds, which of course ultimately did not carry many interesting improvements, except for making calendar entries from the clock widget. Slow Ring users, in particular, will receive Build 19013.112 which includes a fix for the issue where the Settings app would hang or crash when accessing the System or Ease of Access sections. It also has the following improvements and issues: MORE KAOMOJI As some of you may know, with Windows 10 version 1903, Microsoft updated their WIN+(Period) / WIN+(Semicolon) keyboard shortcut to not only include emoji, but to also now contain kaomoji and special characters. What are kaomoji? Basically, they’re faces with expressions you can make by combining various characters–for example, you might be familiar with the shruggie: ¯\_(?)_/¯ In any case, based on your feedback, in this build Microsoft is updating their kaomoji list with a few more favourites, including: And more! Enjoy WINDOWS SUBSYSTEM FOR LINUX (WSL) 2 WILL NOW RELEASE UNUSED LINUX MEMORY BACK TO YOUR WINDOWS MACHINE Previously, your WSL 2 Virtual Machine’s (VM) memory would grow to meet the needs of your workflow, but would not shrink back down when the memory was no longer needed. With this change, as memory is no longer in use in the Linux VM, it will be freed back to Windows, which will shrink in memory size accordingly. Other updates for Insiders POWERTOYS V0.12 NOW AVAILABLE! Microsoft has just released its 0.12 release of PowerToys on GitHub. Microsoft has gotten tons of great feedback and suggestions from the community and wants to directly say thank you to everyone. New features include a great new utility called PowerRename, which makes it easy to batch rename a bunch of files, improvements to FancyZones, and support for Dark Mode. Check out their latest article for all the details. YOUR PHONE APP–ELEVATING THE PHONE SCREEN FEATURE BY REMOVING ITS DEPENDENCY ON BLUETOOTH CONNECTION Windows Insiders, Microsoft heard your feedback about the Phone screen feature’s dependency on Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity. To address your feedback, Microsoft partnered closely with Samsung to bring you a more streamlined experience across all Windows 10 PCs by removing the peripheral role dependency for Phone screen, which will expand the overall reach of this feature. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 was the first device to introduce this feature in August. After a positive response, Microsoft has recently enabled this feature across Samsung Galaxy Fold, S10, S10+, and S10e smartphones. You’ll need to update your supported Samsung devices with the recent software update that enables the ‘Link to Windows’ feature. To continue offering this experience to other smartphones, Microsoft is expanding this feature support to Samsung Galaxy A30s, A50s, and A90 smartphones, and Microsoft will continue to add additional devices in the coming months. With the new experience rolling out, Microsoft will be removing the Bluetooth connectivity option, effective immediately. If you were previously enjoying Phone screen over Bluetooth and you have a phone model that doesn’t yet support Link to Windows, the Phone screen node will disappear automatically within the Your Phone app. Microsoft recommends that you unpair your devices by going to the Bluetooth settings on both your PC and your Android phone, so that you don’t have a connection that is no longer in use. Thank you for helping us refine the Phone screen experience so far! Phone screen requirements: Select Android phones running Android 9.0 or greater PC running Windows 10 October 2018 Update or later Android phone must be on and connected to the same network as the PC You will need a supported device to use this feature: Samsung Galaxy Fold Samsung Galaxy Note 10/ Note 10+ Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+/S10e Samsung Galaxy A30s/A50s/A90 Refer to the Your Phone FAQs for additional information. PREVIEW NEW DIRECTX 12 FEATURES In the latest 20H1 builds, you can preview new DirectX 12 features, including DirectX Raytracing tier 1.1, Mesh Shader, and Sampler Feedback. In this blog post, the DirectX Team explains what each of these features are and how they will improve the gaming experience in Windows 10! General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in frames being skipped, starting with Build 19002, when running games and videos fullscreen. Microsoft fixed an issue where initiating “Reset this PC” with the cloud download option wasn’t working when started from Windows RE. Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in preinstalled apps (like Calculator) and other UWP apps being missing from the Apps & Features page in Settings. Microsoft appreciates your patience while Microsoft worked on their sync engine. As of this build, wallpaper and theme syncing is now up and running again. Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in Wi-Fi unexpectedly resetting (turning off and back on) frequently in recent flights. Microsoft fixed an issue where Wi-Fi Settings might get stuck saying Connecting, even though the network flyout (correctly) indicated that you were Connected. Microsoft fixed an issue where an update being temporarily suspended would result in an 0xc19001e1 error being displayed in Windows Update history. Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in the “Open location” search result option not working if the search result was a folder. Microsoft fixed an issue where if you moved Cortana’s window to certain places on your screen, and then closed the window, the minimize animation wouldn’t go towards Cortana’s icon on the taskbar. Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in File Explorer not rendering correctly sometimes when using multiple monitors with different DPIs on the previous flight. Microsoft fixed an issue where you could get into a state where it wasn’t possible to set focus to File Explorer’s search box in order to type your query. Microsoft fixed an issue that could result in the app thumbnail disappearing when you right clicked it in Task View. Microsoft fixed an issue that could result in the Send Message button in certain notifications not being visible when using High Contrast White. Microsoft fixed an issue where the notification following WIN+Shift+S might have a blank space for the screenshot (rather than actually displaying the screenshot). Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in Resource Manager unexpectedly not showing any disk activity. Microsoft fixed an issue where, if you called SUBST with a path ending with a \ it would give a Path not found error. Microsoft fixed a memory leak with running apps that repeatedly sent calls to adjust gamma. Some of you have reached out about when trying to shutdown, seeing a message saying that an app named “G” was preventing shutdown. Microsoft investigated and found an issue where windows related to GDI+were only referenced as “G.” Microsoft has fixed this, so going forward, these will now have the name “GDI+ Window (<exe name>)”, where <exe name> will show the .exe name of the app using GDI+. Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in speechruntime.exe using an unexpectedly high amount of CPU on the previous flight. Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in Bluetooth devices potentially not reconnecting as expected after closing then reopening the device lid for certain devices. Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in the Surface Dial not scrolling in recent builds if you switched to something like zoom and then back to scrolling. Thank you Insiders who shared feedback about the 2-in-1 convertible tablet experience improvements Microsoft discussed here. For the time being, Microsoft is returning to the current experience in retail. Microsoft fixed an issue where Narrator would sometime report focus as the page instead of reporting the actual focused control within Chrome. Microsoft fixed an issue where Narrator would not automatically start reading the Narrator user guide webpage and the YouTube webpage. Microsoft corrected Narrator’s “Next Table” command so that it would work in Excel. Microsoft fixed an issue where the text cursor indicator was visible on top of the lock screen background picture. Microsoft fixed an issue where the text cursor indicator preview wasn’t displaying correctly in Settings when using dark theme. Microsoft fixed an issue where when using dark theme, the hardware keyboard text prediction candidate window was unreadable due to black text on a dark grey background. Microsoft fixed an issue that could result in the touch keyboard flickering when inputting emoji. Microsoft fixed an issue where English punctuations were outputted when using the Chinese Pinyin and Wubi IMEs, even if input mode was set to Chinese under the default IME settings. Thanks for your feedback. Microsoft has fixed an issue where the character width of alphanumeric characters when using the Traditional Chinese Bopomofo IME would change from half width to full width unexpectedly in some input fields. Thanks for reporting it! If you feel this issue hasn’t been fully addressed in the new version of Bopomofo IME, please let us know your feedback. Microsoft has fixed an issue where after successfully updating to a new build, the Windows Update Settings page may have shown the same build needed to be installed. Microsoft has fixed an issue where Optional drivers were failing to install. Known issues BattlEye and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. To safeguard Insiders who might have these versions installed on their PC, Microsoft have applied a compatibility hold on these devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview. See this article for details. Microsoft has heard that Settings still isn’t available outside of launching via the URI (ms-settings:) for some Insiders and are investigating. If you use remote desktop connection and the target PC is on this build, within about an hour (if not sooner), DWM may start crashing, and the session window will either go totally black, experience black flashes, or you may get signed out of the remote desktop session altogether. Microsoft appreciates your patience. A full list of other improvements can be found at Microsoft here. Windows 10 Insiders in the Slow Ring can update to the new build by Checking for Updates in Settings. MSPOWER
