Over a week ago, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14361 for Insiders in the Fast ring on PC or mobile. Among its new features is the option to choose the location users want to install large applications and games, instead of saving them by default to the Windows drive.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14361 also introduced the LastPass extension for Microsoft Edge, Hyper-V Containers, Windows Ink improvements, new icons and many improvements and fixes for PC and Mobile. Until now, users quickly installed large files to the default location, but not all devices had drives with such generous capacity. To solve the matter, Microsoft introduced a new feature that allows users to install large media, applications and games on slower and larger drives or on faster internal SSD, without having to worry about storage space.

Speaking of Builds, Microsoft just released version 14366 for PCs and 14364 for mobile. Unfortunately, they come with some bugs. See below for more details on them.

Build 14366 for PCs:

– The Desktop App Converter Preview (Project Centennial) doesn’t run, which means that developers are advised to switch to the Slow ring until Microsoft fixes this issue.
– When clicking on a file download link outside of Microsoft Edge, the browser will open a tab and close it immediately.
– When toggling the “On” switch via Settings app > Ease of access > Narrator, the Narrator won’t launch.

Build 14364 for Mobile:

– Users aren’t able to deploy an app via Visual Studio 2015 Update 2.
– Some dual-SIM devices have problems with cellular data.
– Quick Actions icons are not in the same order.
