Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 19569 to the Fast ring today. Normally, new builds arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday, but things were delayed by a day due to the Presidents Day holiday in the United States.
There aren't any new features in the build itself, but there are some new icons. Those were spotted earlier today though, so anyone in the Fast ring is getting them, even if you're not on build 19569.
Microsoft announced the new Fluent Design icons a while ago, following the release of new icons for the Office suite. In fact, even when the Office icons got a refresh, the teaser video showed some of these new icons for other apps like Groove, Movies & TV, Mail & Calendar, and more.
As always, there are a bunch of fixes, improvements, and known issues to be aware of. Here's what got fixed and improved in build 19569:
- We fixed an issue resulting in OneDrive not working and using an unexpectedly high amount of CPU for some Insiders on the previous build.
- We resolved an issue where SCSI drivers weren’t being recognized with certain third-party virtual machines, which was causing c1900191 errors on these devices. We’re continuing to investigate additional c1900191 errors on other devices.
- We fixed an issue impacting Start menu reliability after upgrade for some Insiders.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing a green screen with a SYSTEMTHREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED error on recent builds.
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 are aware Narrator and NVDA users that seek the latest release of Microsoft Edge based on Chromium may experience some difficulty when navigating and reading certain web content. Narrator, NVDA and the Edge teams are aware of these issues. Users of legacy Microsoft Edge will not be affected. NVAccess has released a NVDA 2019.3 that resolves the known issue with Edge.
- We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- We’re investigating reports that some Insiders are unable to update to newer builds with error 0x8007042b.
- The Documents section under Privacy has a broken icon (just a rectangle).
- When you upgrade with certain languages, like Japanese, the “Installing Windows X%” page isn’t rendering the text correctly (only boxes are displayed).
- We’re continuing to investigate the issue where input stops working in some places if clipboard history (WIN+V) is dismissed without pasting anything.
- The cloud recovery option for Reset this PC isn’t working on this build. Please use the local reinstall option when performing Reset this PC.
The team also noted that it will be doing its next webcast on March 3 at 10am PT.
