Microsoft is back in business after a short winter holiday break. The company recently pushed out a new cumulative update to the Insider Release Preview ring. Windows 10 KB3209835 is available only for PC and brings the OS to version 14393.594.

For the time being, there is no information as to what this update brings. Most likely, KB3209835 focuses on bug fixes and system improvements rather than new features.

The Release Preview ring is usually the last testing stage for upcoming updates. If everything goes smoothly, Microsoft should roll out KB3209835 to the general public as soon as next week or even earlier.

Windows 10 KB3209835 user feedback

Insiders who already installed this update on their computers confirm that Windows 10 14393.594 is a pretty stable OS version. For the time being, users haven’t reported any major issues, such as BSODs, restart loops or other problems.

Release Preview Insiders also report that KB3209835 takes some time to install, so you should not panic if the update process takes longer than expected.

Windows 10 Mobile Insiders hope that Microsoft releases KB3209835 to its mobile platform as soon as possible. According to user reports, the latest Windows 10 Mobile build has caused serious battery drain issues and Insiders hope that upcoming build fixes this problem.

Everybody expects Microsoft to push out a new build to Fast Ring Insiders this week as well. As a quick reminder, Windows 10 build 14997 already leaked online at the end of December, offering Insiders more details about the upcoming Windows 10 Creators Update.

This build brings the following improvements:

  • A new ‘Set these tabs aside’ option in Microsoft Edge
  • The tab bar incorporates previews of open tabs for easier navigation
  • A Blue Light Filter feature that has similar functionality to the f.lux app
  • The Start menu is now capable of grouping Live Tiles together which optimizes space.
