New Windows 10 Insider Build Fixes A Host Of Bugs

Microsoft has released the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10586 to a select group of users on the Windows Insider program. The new release fixed a number of bugs and brought in some minor improvements. Here are the details.

The latest Windows 10 Build is available to Fast ring testers on the public Insider program. Fast ring users gets priority access to Windows builds after they have been approved internally by Microsoft. If you want to join the Windows 10 Insider program, you don’t need to reinstall the operating system. All you have to do is tweak one setting.

While there aren’t any new features in Build 10586, a range of issues have been fixed, according to a blog by Microsoft:

  • The issue where any audio playing (like music from Groove, or videos from the Movies & TV app) gets reduced by 75% for a period of time after a notification pops up from Action Center is fixed.
  • Pressing the power button on your Surface Pro 3 should put your Surface Pro 3 to sleep instead of shutting it down.
  • We fixed an issue reported by Windows Insiders where a disksnapshot.exe command prompt window would flash randomly.
  • Windows should now remember your previous login type. For example, if you log in with a PIN – it will prompt you for a PIN next time instead of another type.
  • We fixed an issue where Tab previews in Microsoft Edge were appearing as black if the page was not scrolled to the top, and web note clippings were also appearing as black.
  • Small form-factor devices, like the Dell Venue 8 Pro, that boot with rotation or virtual mode screen size set larger than the physical screen size should no longer experience a bluescreen on upgrade.
  • Apps and games should download from the Store more reliably.

Microsoft has also listed some known bugs it is working on rectifying. You can find out more over at Microsoft’s Windows Blog.
