Microsoft released the new build 15048 for Windows 10 Preview last. The new build is currently available for Insiders on the Fast ring only.

As the public release of the Creators Update for Windows 10 approaches, Microsoft prepares the field for the big day. In that manner, Windows 10 builds have stopped receiving new features, but only system improvements and bug fixes. And Windows 10 Preview build 15048 is the first legitimate example of that practice.

So, Windows 10 Preview build 15048 brings only system improvements, without a single new feature. At least, that’s what the official build announcement blog post says.

Here’s the list of all the improvements introduced by Windows 10 Preview build 15048:

  • “We fixed the issue where some UWP apps may unexpectedly appear with their app package name in the title bar as opposed to the app name. A lot of you sent us screenshots of this in the Feedback Hub and we were able to debug the issue quickly. Thank you!.

  • [GAMING] We fixed the issue where some popular games might minimize to the taskbar when launched.

  • We fixed an issue where copy and pasting URLs to and from the Microsoft Edge address bar with spaces wouldn’t convert spaces into %20.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the LastPass extension for Microsoft Edge sometimes unexpectedly failing to show its autofill buttons on recent builds.

  • We fixed a recent issue resulting in unexpected characters sometimes being pasted when pasting into certain websites using Microsoft Edge.

  • We fixed an issue where using the mouse wheel to scrolling in Microsoft Edge might not work if the window was made smaller or moved to a different monitor.

  • We adjusted Microsoft Edge’s “Find on page” logic so that now as you go through the results the webpage should scroll so the found text is more central on the page.

  • We fixed an issue for those flighting recent builds on laptops, changing brightness would stop working after the first time the laptop lid had been closed and reopened when the “Lid Close Action” power policy was set to “Do nothing”.

  • We fixed an issue that could result in not being able to type into search boxes in certain UWP apps.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in clicked Cortana search results not opening when typing using the MS Pinyin IME.

  • We fixed an issue where cross device notifications from a particular phone might unexpectedly appear in two separate groups in the Action Center.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in emails from Outlook 2016 not opening in the foreground after tapping on the corresponding notification.”

Besides build 15048 for Windows 10 Preview, Microsoft also the new build 15047 for Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview, wich also brings bug fixes and system improvements only.
