Microsoft recently rolled out Windows 10 build 16193, revealing more details about the upcoming version of the officially named the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

This build introduces the first big update coming this fall: Story Remix. Microsoft describes this new tool as an evolution of the Photos app that makes it easier for you to relive your memories.

The app automatically brings your photos and videos together into relevant video stories, each with a soundtrack, theme, and transitions. You can keep these suggested video stories or edit them yourself in the story editor. You can then upload your video stories to YouTube and Facebook or share them via email or via OneDrive.

This build release brings two more changes. The Task Manager column name changes from “Background Moderated” to “Power Throttling“. Also, the Volume Mixer now includes individual UWP apps, allowing you to set their volume without impacting the overall system volume.

As usual, Windows 10 build 16193 also brings many bug fixes and improvements to the table:

  • PC Reset via Settings > Update & security > Recovery works again on non-English Insider Preview builds.
  • Navigating to Settings > Personalization > Lock screen should no longer crash Settings app.
  • Fixed an issue where Settings would crash on launch for Insiders using certain display languages, including Russian, French, Polish and Korean.
  • Fixed the issue causing XAML designers in Visual Studio and Blend for Visual Studio to show an exception when a XAML file from a Universal Windows Platform project is opened.
  • Fixed an issue resulting in some fonts not rendering properly in Greek or other single-byte system locales such as Hebrew or Arabic.
  • Fixed an issue where the Clear all button in Action Center wouldn’t work if a notification had been expanded.
  • You can now use Ctrl + Win + N to directly open Narrator Settings.
  • Fixed an issue where the Windows Store App Troubleshooter was erroneously showing the message “Not Fixed” instead of “Fixed” after following the steps to troubleshoot the error “Windows Store cache may be damaged”.
  • Fixed an issue from recent flights that could lead to the PC no longer recognizing any USB device until the USB Root Hub had been disabled and re-enabled in Device Manager.

Have you downloaded Windows 10 build 16193 on your computer? Did you encounter any other issues apart from the bugs that Microsoft already listed as known issues?
