Dona Sarkar, the new head of the Windows Insider program, teased us about some “really interesting things” that would land later this week. Turns out she kept her promise: the Windows 10 build 14361 for both Mobile and PCs is now available for download for Fast Ring Insiders.
This build mainly focuses on improvements and fixes as we predicted in a previous article, and surprisingly also brings new features.
Build 14361 fixes the following issues for PCs:
- The issue causing keyboard navigation in Store apps like Netflix or Tweetium to not work.
- The issue causing certain websites like YouTube to fail to render in Microsoft Edge or IE.
- The issue resulting in a strange grey bar on the left side of the Microsoft Edge browser window.
- The issue that would cause the icons to disappear from the tabs in Microsoft Edge after the DPI change corresponding with remotely connecting to the PC via Remote Desktop.
- The issue where DNG file thumbnails were not displaying in File Explorer.
- The issue resulting in clipping on the bottom or side of Start’s context menus.
- The issue where pressing the Enter key would not submit the Wi-Fi password in the network flyout from the taskbar.
- The issue that resulted in focus being lost to Cortana’s search box after a typed search has been deleted via backspace.
- The issue that resulted in certain apps, such as Photos, not being able to set the desktop background.
- The issue where Start wouldn’t dismiss after launching Sticky Notes, leading to Sticky Notes appearing behind Start.
- The issue resulting in not being able to set your account picture in Settings using the camera option.
- The issue where Command Prompt wasn’t maximizing correctly on high DPI monitors.
- The issue where the taskbar’s volume icon was showing incorrect states for 0% and muted.
- The issue where applying a new save location on the Storage Settings page for any one file type would result in any other pending save location changes being lost.
- The window of active hours for when you are using your PC has been increased from 10 to 12 hours under Settings > Update & security > Windows Update and “Change active hours”.
- The download notification in Microsoft Edge now includes filename, download status, and site domain on separate lines.
- The amount of whitespace at the top of Start has been reduced, and the scrollbars will immediately hide once your mouse is no longer hovering over that area.
- The reliability of Cortana’s listening after tapping the mic button has been improved.
- Windows Defender no longer shows recap notifications in normal mode if no scans have been run, or in scan-only mode if no threads have been found.
- Going forward from Build 14361, your Task Manager settings will now be preserved across build updates.
- A new keyboard shortcut is available to open the taskbar’s clock and calendar flyout – WIN + Alt + D.
- The size of icons used in notifications has been decreased from 64×64 to 48×48.
Good job, Microsoft!
