Microsoft Ships Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15048

It’s been a busy week in Redmond: Microsoft today delivered yet another Windows 10 Insider Preview build, 15048, today.

And while I’ve been honing in on the notion that Creators Update development has been winding down recently, nothing speaks to this fact more clearly than this most recent build. Which, yes, includes no new features.

Microsoft does list a number of other changes, improvements, and fixes, many related to Edge. None are major, or worth calling out.

Anyway. Enjoy the new build!

    Congratulations to the Windows team on hitting Feature Complete. Now on to ZBB and release.

    I've been so frustrated with all the Edge bugs. I'm glad LastPass finally is working again, but jfc it'd been broken for so long that I finally gave up and started to switch over to using Chrome. Also, it does look like maybe some of the back navigation bugs have been fixed as well. I hope they can get the "not responding" bugs fixed. Then it'd be nice if they can fix the horrible favorites "management".

    Don't forget a new Edge and Internet explorer zero day out in the wild. While they defer patches to their most secure OS ever!

    My laptop gets the fast ring, but my production desktop is on old insecure Windows 7.

    What? No more eyebleed-inducing wallpaper? Sweet!

    Make Windows Adequate Again.

    Good lord what does the minutiae of a random new build with no new features matter when the house is on fire and people are dumping Windows 10 in droves. Paul clearly saw the NMS and Steam reports both showing Windows 7 gaining users while 10 lost - again. Why's he ignoring that?

    Anyone else been having this issue? I've been having this issue for awhile now and just though it would get fixed over time, but it's still happening in build 15048. I've tried posting in the MS Forums with no luck and figured I would try here. As mentioned I'm running 15048 rs2_release currently but when I get new email or other applications popup a toast notification in the lower right hand corner of my screen and I click on it, the email (in this case) launches, but it's launching in the background not the foreground and flashes the icon in the taskbar. I have to hover over the icon in the taskbar and then wait for the multiple previews to display and then select the one that is the new email message, if I can even tell which one is new.

    Not sure if this is by design, but this does not happen on my NON windows Insider systems.

    Did they ship a new default "hero" windows 10 wallpaper too? Been seeing that image everywhere now and it definitely looks different from the original windows 10 wallpaper...

    I actually prefer Edge to all the other browsers, provided its reasonably functional. Lastpass was no longer working dependably in recent builds, and I was having a lot of mouse and text selection issues. I am hopeful that these will be addressed. None of it rose to the callout level, except that cumulatively they were pushing me toward other browsers.

    I know its impolitic to refer directly to The-Platform-That-Must-Not-Be-Mentioned hereabouts, but Microsoft also included Edge Mobile fixes in today's Insider build numbered 15047. Second Build this week, and another firmware upgrade in the bargain from HP. Not bad for a zombie device.

    Does anybody have a suggestion what the significance is of the return of the watermark? I thought that wouldn't be back until they reached theoretical RTM stage and began the run up to RS3. I can't see it as a big issue but just seemed odd to me.
