Windows 10 build 17733 bugs

If you’re curious to learn what kind of bugs are affecting Windows 10 build 17733, you’ve come to the right place. This new build release brings a highly requested new feature to the table, namely dark theme support in File Explorer. Just as it happens with every new Windows 10 build, this OS test version also features some issues of its own.

In this post, we’ll list the most common Windows 10 build 17733 problems that Insiders encountered after installing the build. Whenever there’s a solution for the respective problems, we’ll make sure to mention it as well.

Windows 10 build 17733 issues

Hyperlinks won’t work

If you rely on the Mail app to access your emails, you may want to temporarily switch to Outlook. Insiders reported that hyperlinks fail to open after installing the latest Windows 10 build.

Hyperlinks in Windows 10 mail app not working on latest Windows 10 Fast Track insider update 17733.rs5_release.180803-1525. No email hyperlink is working in the mail app version 16005.10325.20106.0. The same link works perfectly from Outlook. […] It happens in all accounts, all emails – app has just been updated, have run troubleshooter. Have only just reconfigured and refreshed windows a couple of days a go so fresh build too.

Data loss issues

Some Insiders complained about losing all their junction links after hitting the update button.

Right after update to the recent 17733 all junction links from C:Users<MyUserName> can’t be open including My Documents, Start Menu, etc.

Other users said this build reverted their settings to default and installed apps and programs they had previously removed.

Awful build. […] totally replacing the existing OS with a new installation that gets rid of existing downloads, reverts everything to defaults and installs apps that were previously disabled and uninstalled.

The Settings page crashes

Many Insiders who tried to clear their Activity History experienced app crashes. More specific, the Settings page crashes when users try to delete their Activity History.

File Explorer is hard to read at angles in Dark Mode

Microsoft still has some work to do on the new File Explorer Dark Mode UI. Many Insiders find it hard to read text at angles in Dark Mode, so they preferr to use the light mode instead.

In my laptop, dark mode for File Explorer is hard to read at angles, so I prefer light mode. However, I have found no way of putting FE in light mode without tuning off dark mode elsewhere which I do prefer. It would be really good to be able to pick and choose which parts use dark mode rather than “all or nothing”.
