Here's what's fixed and improved in Windows 10 build 17115

Microsoft released Windows 10 for PCs Insider Preview build 17115 to the Fast ring today, also saying that there will not be any new builds for Skip Ahead today. The only new features are some new privacy settings.

After all, we're now only a few weeks from the spring update for Windows 10 being completed. Because of this, Microsoft is focusing on fixes instead of new features.

Here's what got fixed and improved in Windows 10 build 17115:

  • We fixed an issue where If you tried to open a file that was available online-only from OneDrive that hadn’t been previously downloaded to your PC (marked with a green checkmark in File Explorer), your PC could bugcheck (GSOD).

  • We fixed an issue where post-install at the first user-prompted reboot or shutdown, a small number of devices experienced a scenario wherein the OS fails to load properly and might have entered a reboot loop state.

  • We fixed an issue where the Microsoft Store might be completely broken or gone altogether after upgrading.

  • We fixed an issue where when you denied Movies & TV access to your videos library (through the “Let Movies & TV access your videos library?” popup window or through Windows privacy settings), Movies & TV would crash when you navigated to the “Personal” tab.

  • We fixed two issues impacting the usability of Windows Mixed Reality on the previous build (Windows Mixed Reality running at a very low frame rate (8-10fps), and a potential crash at startup that could cause Windows Mixed Reality to not work).

  • We fixed an issue from recent flights resulting the Direct Messages section of Twitter.com potentially not rendering in Microsoft Edge.

  • We fixed an issue from recent flights causing precision touchpads to periodically need a few tries to be able to move the mouse.

  • We fixed an issue impacting the Italian touch keyboard layout where the period key would act as a delete key in UWP apps.

  • We fixed an issue impacting the Czech touch keyboard layout where numbers on the &123 view couldn’t be inserted into UWP apps.

  • We fixed an issue where you couldn’t use touch to interact with the Timeline scrollbar.

  • We fixed an issue where a failed app update could result in that app becoming unpinned from the taskbar.

  • We fixed an issue where the controls in the Focus Assist Settings subpages didn’t have accessible labels.

  • We fixed an issue from the last few flights where after launching, minimizing, then closing UWP apps enough times, you would stop being able to launch UWP apps.

Interestingly, there are no known issues in this build. That means that previous bugs, like the missing Microsoft Store in build 17112, have been fixed.

Keep in mind that this does not mean that there are no issues. It means that there are no known issues, so things can still break, and that list can change over time.

To install today's build, head over to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates. If you're not on the Fast ring yet, go to the Windows Insider Program tab and click 'Get started'.
