Microsoft has just announced the release of Windows 10 build 10565 to its Windows Insider program for those that have opted for the fast ring. Although the new build does feature a wide range of improvements, it does also come with a list of known issues and bug fixes.
Like previous builds, Microsoft has carefully detailed the known issues and bug fixes that accompany today's release of build 10565. Below are the bugs that have been fixed from previous releases:
- You should no longer see a warning message in the Settings app > Update & Security > Windows Update regarding changed ring settings for preview builds unless you actually change your ring settings.
- Background audio playback works again when apps like Groove are minimized.
- We fixed the issue where clicking on the system icons in the notification area quickly results in Windows Shell blocking the launch of fly-outs like Audio, Networking, etc.
- After Build 10525, we heard a lot of feedback that some context menus were too big for mouse. We’ve made adjustments to many of the context menus to make them smaller for using them with a mouse.
- You can now pin contacts to the Start menu from the People app.
- Certain apps won’t appear twice anymore when pinned to the taskbar.
- Hiding desktop icons via context menu on the desktop now works.
- Windows Store apps should now be updating automatically.
Of course, with any new build, especially one that is issued to fast ring users, the new build will also come with know issues that could affect your experience:
- The search box does not work if you are in a locale where Cortana is not available. We are currently investigating workarounds.
- The Xbox app for Windows 10 will consume gigabytes of memory on your PC if you have any Win32 games (non -Windows Store games) installed on your PC that have been identified as games or added by you in the Xbox app. Closing the Xbox app will release your PC’s memory.
- WebM and VP9 have been temporarily removed from the flight builds. We continue to develop a VP9 implementation that we intend to ship in Windows. Expect VP9 to return soon in a future release.
- Small form-factor devices, like the Dell Venue 8 Pro, that boot with rotation or virtual mode screen size set larger than the physical screen size will experience a bluescreen on upgrade and will roll back to the previous build.
Naturally, if you have any of the aforementioned issues or discover new ones, report those issues to the Windows 10 dev team.
