  • Fixed an issue causing the taskbar to not appear for a small number of Insiders in the last couple flights.


  • Fixed an underlying issue which was causing the preferred audio volume (under Settings > System > Sound > Volume Mixer) for Microsoft Edge to not persist across restarting the app.

Known issues
