Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18941 (20H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring, but the update comes with some fair warnings.
If you’re a Fast ring insider, check out this important message from the company:
IMPORTANT: As is normal with builds early in the development cycle, these builds may contain bugs that might be painful for some. If you take this flight, you won’t be able to switch Slow or Release Preview rings without doing a clean-install on your PC. If you wish to remain on 19H1, please change your ring settings via Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program *before* taking this flight.
Remember, if you’re in the Fast ring and want to get your hands on the new build right away, keep in mind that there may be potential bugs and issues.
Let’s not forget the plethora of problems surrounding Windows 10 May update.
What’s new in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18941?
There are no notable new features, but Microsoft included a series of fixes as it follows:
- We fixed an issue resulting in some users experiencing a large amount of lag when using the previous flight.
- We fixed an issue where explorer.exe would crash if you started a File Explorer search while in a OneDrive folder.
- We fixed an issue where if you searched for advanced Windows Update options, the search result would open to the main Windows Update Settings page, rather than the advanced one.
- We fixed an issue where Settings would crash if you clicked on the microphone section under Privacy Settings while audio recording was in progress by a Win32 application.
What issue can I expect if I update to Windows 10 build 18941?
The most important know issue is the error code c1900101. If you’ve tried to install Build 18936 or Build 18941 and failed, than this error may seem familiar.
Error code c1900101 is related to a compatibility bug with a storage driver on their device and can create boot loops and other issues, but the good news is that you can roll back to the previous build.
Other know issues include: crashes related to older versions of anti-cheat software, Realtek SD card readers not functioning properly, and Tamper Protection may be turned off in Windows Security after the update.
