Here's what's fixed and improved in Windows 10 build 17120

Microsoft released Windows 10 for PCs Insider Preview build 17120 today, bringing with it some minor new features that have to do with Windows Defender Application Guard. The company also called out some updated that were announced last week for Windows Mixed Reality, but those were included with build 17115.

But since we're getting so close to the spring update being finalized, Microsoft is focusing on fixes and improvements. There's a fairly short list of fixes in build 17120, although to be fair, build 17115 didn't have any known issues that could be fixed in this build.

Here's what got fixed and improved:

  • When a process in Task Manager is suspended, or has suspended child processes, you’ll now see an icon indicating as much in the Status column of the Processes tab.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the UAC dialog potentially not rendering correctly in the last few flights.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in OneNote crashing when using touch to drag and drop elements in recent flights.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the touch keyboard crashing when focus was moved to certain password fields.

  • We’ve improved the performance of Bluetooth mice when the system is under load.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Amharic keyboard not working in Win32 apps.

As was the case in the last build, Microsoft says there are still no known issues to be aware of aside from some Windows Mixed Reality issues. These all have to do with the new features that were introduced last week. Here's the list:

  • We’re investigating reports of a performance regression for Windows Mixed Reality on hybrid laptops on this build.

  • In some cases, the inbox apps will fail to load inside of Windows Mixed Reality and newly placed Holograms may be empty. Restarting Windows Mixed Reality should resolve both issues.

  • Windows Mixed Reality will crash if you launch the Store from Movies & TV, and then close both apps.

  • The ambient sound in Skyloft is louder than it should be.

  • On laptops with hybrid GPUs the video doesn’t render for 360 videos rendered directly in the Edge app although you can still hear the sound.

  • The 360 viewer fails to launch from the Store app when you click on the “Launch” button after installing the 360 Viewer Edge extension. To workaround manually launch Edge and then enable the 360 Viewer extension.

Again, if you don't use Windows Mixed Reality, you don't have to worry about this.

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.
