Here's what's fixed, improved, and still broken in Windows 10 for PCs build 14951

Microsoft today released Windows 10 build 14951 for PC and Mobile, which is the latest build from the Development Branch. It contains a few new features, such as a redesigned Camera app and Windows Ink improvements.

As always, there is a list of fixes, improvements, and known issues. Here are the fixes and improvements in the PC build:

  • We fixed the issue causing PCs that are capable of Connected Standby such as the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 to sometimes bugcheck (bluescreen) while in Connected Standby.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War (and some 3rd party games) failing to install from the Store with the error code 0x80073cf9 when the system’s app install location was set to drive with native 4k Sectors (or 4k sector sized drive).

  • We fixed an issue resulting in larger Store games such as ReCore, Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Killer Instinct and Rise of the Tomb Raider possibly failing to launch.

  • We fixed an issue where the console window (which hosts Command Prompt, PowerShell, and other command-line utilities) might not snap correctly to the inside edges between two monitors with different DPI scaling.

  • We fixed an issue where all agenda items in the taskbar’s Clock and Calendar flyout were using the primary calendar’s color, rather than matching their respective calendar’s colors as selected in the Outlook Calendar app.

  • We fixed issue where the Add PIN button in Settings > Accounts > Sign-in Options was sometimes unexpectedly greyed out for domain-joined devices.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in Groove crashing if you tried to reorder the songs in a very large playlist.

  • We’ve updated our migration logic to now include custom scan code mappings. That means that going forward from this build, if you’ve used Registry Editor to remap certain keys (for example, Caps Lock key to null), that change will persist across upgrades.

  • We fixed an issue Insiders may have experienced resulting in Adobe Photoshop Express crashing after clicking on the ‘correct’ button when trying to edit a cropped image.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in .csv or .xlsx files downloaded from Microsoft Edge sometimes unexpectedly appearing to be locked for editing by “another user” when SmartScreen was enabled.

  • We fixed an issue where enabling the RemoteFX adaptor for a Virtual Machine would result in it failing to power on with the error ‘Unspecified error’ (0x80004005).

Here are the known issues:

  • Signing into apps such as Feedback Hub, Groove, MSN News, etc. with your Microsoft Account if you sign out or get signed out of these apps will not work. If this happens to you and you cannot sign in to Feedback Hub, you can send us feedback via the forums.

  • You may experience a crash while using the protractor in Sketchpad – we’re working on a fix.

  • If you have a 3rd party antivirus product installed on your PC – your PC might not be able to complete the update to this build and roll-back to the previous build.

It looks like the known issues aren't entirely major this time, as they can often be. There are only three, but Microsoft is likely to add more as time goes by and it gets more feedback on today's build, so you might want to keep an eye on that. Of course, we'll keep you updated when it happens.

If you're on the Fast ring, you can grab 14951 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. Once your PC reboots, go back and make sure that you're on the Fast ring.
