Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 10, 10586 that is now available to Windows Insiders who are participating in the Fast ring. You can download the build now by searching Windows Update inside the Settings panel.
In this build, there are no new features, which is expected, as many believe this may be the fall release of Windows 10 that goes out to consumers running the RTM build. At this time, there no indication from Microsoft that this is the build for that release but several tips from Insiders have hinted that this is the actual update.
In the announcement post, Gabe Aul goes as far to say that this build “makes a great daily driver”, take that as more evidence that this could be the fall release build.
Here is what is fixed in this build:
- 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.
Known issues in this release:
- After upgrading from one Windows 10 Insider Preview build to another Insider Preview build, Skype messages and contacts will disappear from the Messaging + Skype app. You can get Skype messages and contacts back by navigating to “C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Messaging_
- 8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache” in File Explorer and deleting or renaming the “PrivateTransportId” file. After deleting or renaming that file, go to the Skype video app and sign out of Skype and sign back in.
- The Insider Hub might be gone after upgrading to this build. You can get Insider Hub back by going to Settings > System > Apps & features and clicking “Mange optional features”, choosing “Add a feature” and selecting Insider Hub.
I am in the process of downloading and installing this update and will report back if any major issues arise. Let us know in the comments below if you hit any snags with the update process but at this time, it is expected that this should be a smooth install process.
