One of the main purposes of Windows 10 Insider program is to test builds and collect user feedback about flaws that need to be addressed. Because of its nature, most of the problems in Windows 10 Preview persist for just a few builds. However, there are some longstanding issues that Microsoft somehow fails to address as quickly as we expect.

One of them is the problem with UWP apps in the Tablet Mode. Namely, certain apps crash as soon as users switch to Tablet Mode. This problem was reported back in 2016, but Microsoft somehow skipped it with each new Windows 10 build.

windows apps keep crash in tablet mode
some apps like photo and music keep crash when i using tablet mode, but if i use desktop mode the apps work perfectly..

Now, the wait is finally over: Microsoft said it fixed this bug in the latest Windows 10 build. Here’s what Microsoft said in Windows 10 build 15019 announcement:

We fixed an issue some insiders may have experienced recently with the mouse and keyboard sometimes going unresponsive for a few seconds at a time.

If you’ve experienced this issue in some of previous Windows 10 builds, all you need to do to make things right is install the latest release. To get the new build, you need to be on the Fast Ring of Windows 10 Insider Program. Go to Settings > Updates & security, and check for updates, to acquire the installation.

In case you’ve already installed the new build, let us know if you’ve noticed any changes.
