Here's what got fixed, improved, and is still broken in Windows 10 for PCs build 14965

Microsoft today released this week's Fast ring build, which was Windows 10 Insider Preview 14965 for both PC and Mobile. The build contains a number of new features, although it's mostly minor stuff.

The company notes that it kicked off its Bug Bash for the Windows 10 Creators Update this week. If you're interested, head over to the Feedback Hub and get started on some Quests.

As usual, there's a long list of fixes, improvements, and known issues for today's build. Here's what got fixed and improved in Windows 10 for PCs build 14965:

  • We have fixed the issue causing Internet Explorer to crash a few seconds after launch.

  • We fixed an issue where, when using Cortana in French (France or Canada), the “Prendre une ” (take a picture, video, or selfie) command was redirecting to a Bing search rather than opening the Camera app as expected.

  • We’ve made some graphics improvements so the system will now respond better when WIN + L is pressed while playing a full screen game.

  • We’ve updated the ALT + F4 Shutdown dialog to better respond to DPI changes when connected to an external monitor. We also fixed an issue where the tooltips for the taskbar notification area items would be incorrectly sized after a DPI change until rebooting the machine or otherwise signing out and back in.

  • We’ve fixed an issue where File Explorer might crash when creating or renaming a folder on a network share.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the text on the Outlook Calendar tile on the Start menu being slightly fuzzy.

  • We fixed an issue where deleted files might reappear in File Explorer with a 0 byte size.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in a Windows Default Lock Screen window sometimes appearing after logging in.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in File Explorer crashing after right-clicking an app in Task Manager and selecting “Open File Location”.

  • We’ve updated our migration logic so that going forward from Build 14965, preferred UAC settings, startup shortcuts, and File Explorer folders that had been pinned to the Start menu will all now be preserved across upgrades.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in vertical lists written in XAML, such as those found in Groove Music, unexpectedly animating in from the side.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in Cortana crashing if you typed “Create an appointment” then clicked on the resulting suggestion to “Create an appointment”.

  • We fixed an issue where in Microsoft Edge, after cancelling a file download, the progress bar for the next file downloaded might appear to be stuck at the point at which the old file’s download was at when it was cancelled.

  • We fixed an issue that could result in the Japanese Input Method Editor (IME) periodically showing the candidate window in the upper left corner of the desktop and not being able to enter text into the Office 2016 apps and some other text editors.

Here are the known issues:

  • Double-clicking on an Excel document to open it from File Explorer will crash Microsoft Excel. The workaround is to open the document from within Excel.

  • Microsoft Studios games like Microsoft Sudoku, Jigsaw, Minesweeper, Taptiles, and Treasure Hunt may freeze at the splash screen on launch.

As you can see, neither of the two known issues seem particularly major. Dona Sarkar notes that language packs for this build are being slightly delayed. If you have additional language packs installed on your machine, it's recommended that you hold off on checking for updates.

If you're on the Fast ring, you can grab today's Insider Preview build by heading over to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates. If not, go to the Windows Insider Program tab and click Get started. When your PC restarts, go back and make sure that you're on the Fast ring.
