Windows 10 build 18950 ads changes based on user feedback

Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18950 (20H1) to Insiders in the Fast Ring.

The new update is based on user feedback

The update comes with some important changes, especially for users who are interested in the new Japanese IME.

Upon receiveng a lot of feedback through the Feedback Hub, Microsoft’s development team fixed come issues regarding Prediction Candidate window key navigation and added some key customizations.

Snip & Sketch improvements are not available for all Fast Ring Insiders

Also, Snip & Sketch gets some improvements to make the snipping experience more detailed and user friendly:

  • Single windows mode – now you can choose to open a single snip window or multiple ones from the settings. If you chose Single window, new snips will open in your current app windows.
  • Zoom – you can now zoom in and out on your screenshots directly from the app.
  • WIN+Shift+S discoverability – you can now start a snip without needing to open the app first

We have to mention that these changes are only available for some Insiders in the Fast Ring, because Microsoft wants to test the features thoroughly before rolling them out to all the users.

There are some other changes and fixes like fixed ctfmon.exe crash when clicking the input mode indicator in the taskbar to switch the Japanese IME between modes, fixed hanja conversion not working in certain apps in Korean IME, and others.

To see the full list of changes and the known issues, head over to the official release page.
