Microsoft Releases New Windows 10 20H1 Build With Minor Improvements

Posted on June 5, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows, Windows 10 with 3 Comments

Microsoft is releasing a new build of Windows 10 to Insiders today. The company is pushing out a build from the 20H1 release to Insiders in the Fast Ring. The new build 18912, however, is quite minor and doesn’t include any major new features.

There is only one main improvement to the Narrator that lets you hear the title of the page on hyperlinks before actually opening them. “Do you get frustrated tabbing through “Click me” links? Narrator can now tell you the title of the page that’s linked to—just press Caps + Ctrl + D, and Narrator will take the URL of the hyperlink you are on and send it to an online service that will provide the page title to Narrator”, Microsoft said.

The new build also includes a number of minor bug fixes and improvements:

  • We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders experiencing unexpected green screens in the last flight which cited an error with win32k.sys.
  • We fixed a high hitting DWM crash from the last two flights that was resulting in the screen frequently going black (and then everything showing again).
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Focus Assist unexpectedly enabling via the full screen automatic rule for some users after minimizing all apps.
  • We fixed an issue where, if you used remote desktop to connect to an enhanced session VM, the taskbar search results were not visible (just a dark area).
  • We fixed an issue where certain emoji weren’t being read out by Text to Speech (TTS).
  • We fixed an issue where, when selecting a color filter in the Ease of Access settings, it may not have taken effect right away unless the color filters option was turned off and back on again.
  • We fixed an issue where users navigating to the Graphics Settings page in the Settings application may have experienced Settings application crashes.
  • We fixed an issue where double-clicking the update icon in the taskbar would result in Settings launching, then immediately crashing.
  • We fixed an issue that impacted emoji panel and clipboard history reliability in the last few flights.
  • We fixed an issue that caused the IME candidate window for East Asian IMEs (Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and the Japanese IME) to not appear sometimes.
  • We fixed an issue where Chinese Pinyin and Wubi IME text candidates couldn’t be selected by number keys in the Numpad.
  • We fixed an issue where the size of tooltips for the Chinese Pinyin IME candidate window were an inconsistent font size.

There are also a couple of known issues in this build, so you should probably check out the full changelog here if you are planning to install the build on your main machine.

    The New Republic used to run a small section for the world's most boring headlines of the week. Now with Minor Improvements would have been a natural for that.
