Windows 10 Insider Preview build 11102 is now available for PCs

Last week, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 11099, its first new build of the year for PCs. Today, it's rolling out Insider Preview build 11102 for PCs on the Fast ring.

However, Microsoft's Gabe Aul emphasized that gamers, as well as those who use accessibility software on their PCs, should take note of the known issues in this new build before upgrading:

  • Some PC games will crash switching from windowed mode to full screen, upon game resolution change, or upon launch due to a bug in Windows graphics stack. We have observed this with The Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed, and Metal Gear Solid V but it may occur with other titles as well.
  • With this build (and with the last build), applications such as Narrator, Magnifier, and third-party assistive technologies may experience intermittent issues or crashes. If you rely on screen readers or other software, you should not use this build. This issue will be fixed with the next build.
  • You might see a WSClient.dll error dialog after logging in. We’re working on a fix for this but as a workaround, you can run the following in Command Prompt with administrative rights: schtasks /delete /TN “\Microsoft\Windows\WS\WSRefreshBannedAppsListTask” /F
  • While attempting to update to this build, your PC may show a message that your wireless card is not compatible with Windows 10. The workaround is to visit the support page for your PC or wireless card and install the newest driver that is available.
  • The Connect button does not show up in Action Center.

If you can live with those issues, and you're upgrading to build 11102 today, you'll have something to look forward to in Microsoft's Edge browser. The new build allows you to right-click on the Back and Forward buttons in Edge to get a quick-access menu of recently-visited websites.

Other than that, there are no other new features in 11102, and as Gabe recently mentioned, you shouldn't expect many new features in the next few builds either, as the company is focusing primarily on structural improvements to the OS for now.
