Microsoft has announced the new Windows 10 Preview build yesterday! The most recent Windows 10 build goes by the number of 10586, and it will be the first time the build of the same number arrived on both PC and Windows 10 Mobile. The build is mainly focused on bug fixes and improvements, but it has some of its own issues.
And just like we did with the previous Windows 10 Preview build, we’re here to report you about all known issues in the Windows 10 10586 build, so you can know what to expect from the latest release. Issues are present on both PC and Windows Phone devices, and you can check them out below. We are continuously updating this article, so leave your comments, as well, and we will make sure to add them inside the article.
Windows 10 Build 10586 Issues on PC
Build 10586 for PCs doesn’t come with any major bugs, which is great news for all testers. However, there are some minor bugs in Skype and Insider Hub apps:
- When you finish upgrading from your previous Preview build to 10586, Skype messages and contacts will disappear from the Messaging + Skype app. Luckily, there’s a workaround for this issue, as you can get them back by navigating to: “C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Messaging_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache” in File Explorer, and deleting or renaming “PrivateTransportId” file. After deleting this file, go to Skype video app, sign out, and sign back in, and you’ll receive your contacts back
- The Insider hub may also disappear. To get this feature back, go to Settings > System > Apps & features > Manage optional features, choose Add a feature, and select Insider Hub.

Windows 10 Build 10586 Issues on Windows 10 Mobile
As for Windows 10 Mobile, many experts believe that build 10586 will be the RTM build of Windows 10 Mobile, therefore it should be stable, smooth, and bug-free. But, as some sources from China claim, this build isn’t without problems.
Reportedly, the main problem of build 10586 for Windows 10 Mobile are reboot loop issues on hard reset. But besides that, testers didn’t find any major other problem in this build, which is very encouraging. Moreover, they report that this build is the most stable Windows 10 Mobile build so far. And if rumors are true, and Microsoft really plans to release Windows 10 Mobile on November 12th, they still have about a week to fix all minor issues.
We can say that Microsoft surprised us with alleged announcements about the release of Windows 10 Mobile on November 12th, instead of ‘sometime in December,’ as said previously. So, you can tell us in the comments, are you excited about the fact that Windows 10 Mobile comes even before you thought?
