Windows 10 build 18353 download

It’s Friday and there’s a new build in town. Windows 10 build 18353 is now available for download for Fast Ring Insiders.

As expected, this build release does not bring any new features to the table. The Redmond giant is now focusing on making the OS as stable as possible. In just a few weeks’ time, Microsoft will roll out Windows 10 19H01 — hence the focus on bug fixing.

Without further ado, let’s see what this build release brings in terms of fixes.

Windows 10 build 18353 changelog

  1. We’ve enabled microphone in Windows Sandbox, which among other things will improve several accessibility scenarios.
  2. We’ve added functionality to configure the audio input device via the Windows Sandbox config file.
  3. We’ve fixed an issue in which the Windows Sandbox time zone was not synchronized with the host.
  4. We’ve enabled the Shift + Alt + PrintScreen key sequence in Windows Sandbox which activates the ease of access dialog for enabling high contrast mode.
  5. We’ve enabled the ctrl + alt + break key sequence in Windows Sandbox which allows entering/exiting fullscreen mode.
  6. We fixed a recent issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing bug checks upon lid close, monitor plug, or monitor unplug.
  7. We fixed an issue resulting in preferred region settings getting reset on upgrade in the last few flights.
  8. We fixed an issue resulting in the Chinese version of multiple games not working.
  9. We fixed an issue in memcpy that caused some drivers to hard-hang the system on load; this could manifest as a hang on upgrade, depending on the system.
