Windows 10 build 18841 issues

Windows Insiders on the Skip Ahead subset of the Fast ring have recently received the new Windows 10 build 18841. Just like the previous builds, this one does not bring any new feature and it comes with a bunch of fixes and known issues.

The complete changelog is available on Microsoft Blog.

Ever since the release of Windows 10 build 18841, Windows users took to the internet to report issues. Users have experienced a couple of different issues and they are expecting Microsoft to resolve those issues in the next update.

Windows 10 build 18841 bugs

1. Edge not working

A couple of users reported that they are experiencing issues while using Edge in the tablet mode on Surface Pro and Surface Go. As soon as users pinch-zooms on some specific sites, they are not able to select text on the page or use the right click.

Some of the sites mentioned by the users are YouTube, Reddit, BBC. Some of the users experienced the same error in Surface Pro 3 without tablet mode. The bug has been described as:

Still experiencing bug in Edge since 1803, that is present still in this build. Basically if you pinch to zoom on certain sites, it breaks touch and hold for right click and text selection. Its getting quite annoying. Is anyone aware of this bug?

Currently, a workaround for the bug is too restart the browser. Microsoft has suggested its users to switch to a modern browser. While can still expect a permanent fix to the issue in the next few months.

2. Unable to edit search query

Another Reddit user tested Edge on Bing and the browser did not allow him to edit the search query. In fact, the browser restricts  users from clicking again in the search box.

There is no workaround for the bug at the moment.

3. Stuck on installing Windows 10 screen

A Twitter user reported that he has been stuck on the installation screen for hours. Although the issue is not reported by most of the users still it’s pretty frustrating for the users to wait for long hours.

This installation bug might not necessarily be something related to the build while Microsoft needs to fix that as well.

Microsoft has not yet provided any fix to the issue but still, the users are expecting the bug to be fixed in the upcoming release.

4. Missing PIN login

Reddit users spotted that the pin login disappeared from the recent build. Moreover, there has been no official statement from Microsoft before removing the feature. Not being able to turn on the feature in settings can be quite annoying.

18841 known issues

It is worth mentioning that Microsoft has acknowledged a couple of issues in Windows 10 build 18841, including Start Menu reliability issues, game launch errors, and Realtek SD card readers and X-Fi sound cards not functioning properly.
