You can read the original report below.

If you’re a Windows 10 Insider, you can now check for updates and install KB4476976. This update is available for Insiders only and adds two fixes for two Action Center bugs.

More specifically, Microsoft fixed the issue where the Action Center might suddenly appear on the opposite side of the screen for a few seconds before appearing on the correct side. The bug that caused the Action Center icon to show a number of unread notifications has been fixed as well.

It is worth mentioning that the update takes the OS build number to Windows 10 build 17763.288.

When will KB4476976 become available for all users?

Most likely, Microsoft will roll out this update to the general public in mid-January or at the beginning of February. So, if you’re an Insider you can help the big M to polish the update by installing and testing it on your computer.

For the time being, KB4476976 is definitely not ready to go live. Insiders have already complained about quite a few issues. We’ll list two of the most common ones below.

KB4476976 bugs

Outlook fails to display preview images

Office 365 Outlook mail keeps losing the preview images feature. After the last update (KB4476976) it worked for a couple of days and now is back to no preview images.

As a workaround, you can launch Internet Options, go to the Advanced tab, and then uncheck ‘Do not save encrypted pages to disk‘. If the option is already unticked , check it, hit Apply and then uncheck it.Do not save encrypted pages to disk

Wi-Fi doesn’t work

Windows Update KB4476976 Breaks WiFi on 9560 or at least it did for me. Laptop would connect to wifi but show “No Internet” and be unusable. Had to uninstall update to fix.

Hopefully, Microsoft will have fixed these issues by the time KB4476976 is available for all Windows 10 users.
