Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 19028 to the Fast ring with more fixes

It's Tuesday afternoon, and according to Microsoft's new Fast ring release schedule, it's time for a new Windows 10 Insider Preview build. Today's build is 19028, and it's once again from the 20H1 development branch.

Just like every build that we've seen for the last few weeks now, there are no new front-facing features at all. This lends credibility to the rumor that 20H1 will RTM in December. Right now, it certainly seems like Microsoft is putting the finishing touches on it, although non-Insiders still won't get their hands on it until the spring.

As always, there are a bunch of fixes, improvements, and known issues. Here's what got fixed and improved in Windows 10 build 19028:

  • We fixed a recent issue that could result in Settings crashing when docking/undocking your device. This issue may have also impacted Action Center launch performance.
  • We fixed an issue impacting the performance of the Printers & Scanners section of Settings loading.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Other People section under Storage Settings not displaying the correct size used.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in Windows Update history in Settings saying a Cumulative Update required a reboot, despite it already being installed. This occurred when a Feature on Demand had installed while the cumulative update was originally pending reboot.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in the Photos app crashing when interacting with HEVC images.

Here are the known issues:

  • BattlEye and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. To safeguard Insiders who might have these versions installed on their PC, we have applied a compatibility hold on these devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview. See this article for details.
  • We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
  • We’ve heard that Settings still isn’t available outside of launching via the URI (ms-settings:) for some Insiders and are investigating.
  • Some Insiders are reporting that after successfully installing printer drivers from the Optional Updates section, the same driver is still showing as available for install. We’re looking into the issue.
  • We’re looking into reports of certain external USB 3.0 drives not responding with Start Code 10 or 38 after they’re attached.

If you're on the Fast ring, you can grab today's build through Windows Update. If not, you can go to the Windows Insider Program tab to get started.
