Windows 10 20H1 Gets a New Insider Build

Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 10 earlier this evening to Insiders in Skip Ahead. The company is releasing a new build, 18865, for the 20H1 branch, though there are not any new features.

That means the build solely consists of minor improvements and bug fixes. Microsoft has included a number of fixes in this new build, though there isn’t really anything to be excited about here:

  • In Cursor & pointer setting, tooltips will now show when you move the mouse over the different color options.
  • We fixed the issue where Narrator’s Copy command in Scan mode in Facebook’s “Write a comment” text field resulted in message “Item cannot take focus”.
  • Narrator now announces the toggle state of checkbox in Listview.
  • We fixed the issue where Narrator read “has finished loading” multiple times when loading a new page in Chrome.
  • We fixed the issue where Narrator did not read cell content in Excel when using F2 to edit.
  • We fixed the issue where Narrator said “end of line” when navigated to an empty cell while editing a table.
  • Scan mode will now switch off to allow typing in the edit field of a spinner control.
  • We fixed the issue where Narrator did not read aria-label information from button.
  • Improved Narrator’s fallback logic for controls with no accessible name.
  • Narrator will now present “invalid” or “required” properties on more controls.
  • We fixed the issue where Narrator Braille showed the window title instead of the first line on the braille display when navigating to the beginning of the document with Ctrl + Home in a text editing area.
  • Narrator Braille user can now reliably activate links by routing key.
  • We fixed the issue where Narrator Braille did not render information on the braille display about the login pop up while creating a page in
  • We fixed the issue where Narrator Braille would show the accessible name in the beginning of every line in a text area.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in a duplicate empty copy of certain folders being created on upgrade for some users.
  • We fixed an issue where, if your computer supported Wi-Fi and you had the Performance tab set as default in Task Manager, on Task Manager launch, the Wi-Fi section in the Performance tab would appear to be selected, but the details displayed would be for the CPU section.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing unexpected BitLocker prompts to encrypt certain drives, and then subsequently failing to encrypt.

There are a couple of known issues in build 18856, by the way.

As Microsoft is preparing to release Windows 10 19H1 to the public, the company is mostly focusing on polishing the update up for the public. At the moment, Microsoft is also shipping Insider builds for 19H2, which is set to arrive later this year for the public. As for 20H1, that update isn’t expected to arrive this year, so I doubt we will see a lot of major features that are exclusively available on 20H1 builds this year.
