Here's what's fixed and improved in Windows 10 for PCs build 14376

Microsoft today released Windows 10 build 14376 for both PC and Mobile. We're now getting very close to an RTM for the Anniversary Update, so there are no front-facing features listed, other than the fact that the Messaging app is going away.

As usual, there's a long list of fixes and improvements. Interestingly, for the first time in a Redstone build, there are absolutely no known issues listed.

Here are the fixes and improvements:

  • We’re rolling out an Store update (11606.1001.25) that improves performance and reliability and includes fixes for accessibility as well.

  • Clicking on networks or VPN connections in the network flyout on the taskbar should now launch the network settings page like it should. We also fixed an issue where the network flyout would sometimes only show the network settings link, despite being currently connected to Wi-Fi.

  • For my dev peeps: we fixed the issue causing an error message when you enable Developer Mode due to the necessary package needed from Windows Update not being published appropriately. Go forth and create!

  • We have updated Narrator to now support using physical volume buttons to adjust the volume while Narrator is in Scan Mode. We also fixed an issue that could result in Narrator crashing when arrowing through list entries.

  • We have updated Windows Hello on the Lock screen to not repeat the name of the person logging in, when it is already displayed on the screen.

  • We have fixed an issue where you might be unable to type in some UWP apps. We also fixed an issue resulting in certain Polish characters being duplicated when typed into UWP apps.

  • We fixed an issue where the Lock screen background might not be displayed correctly.

  • We fixed an issue where your password would revert be being hidden if you tried to edit it while holding the reveal button.

  • We fixed an issue where the search dropdown in the Settings app could end up displaying above the search box instead of below it. We also fixed an issue where the “For developers” settings page would be blank while checking for an optional package, and an issue resulting in no handwriting, speech and other optional components being listed for languages that do support them.

  • We fixed an issue that could result in not being able to turn on “set time zone automatically”.

  • We fixed an issue where the icons in some Start menu tiles could appear zoomed in, for example Alarms & Clock app or Calculator app.

  • We have improved the consistency in scrolling and zooming speeds between monitors when using a precision touchpad on a multiple-monitor setup.

  • We fixed an issue that could result in Explorer.exe crashing after receiving a notification from Microsoft Edge.

  • We fixed an issue where the caret might jump to the beginning of the line, rather than maintaining current y axis position when using the up and down arrow keys in a textbox in Microsoft Edge.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in an authentication error when launching mstsc.exe from an elevated Command Prompt.

Of course, there was a space to add known issues at a later date:

  • We don’t have any known issues to list at the moment for PC. If anything comes up, we’ll update this post and add them here.

Dona Sarkar noted that it may take a couple hours before the build is live. When it is, you can grab it by heading over to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates. If you're not on the Fast ring yet, you can do that by going to Advanced options.
