And it makes a lot of improvements and fixes across the board.
Windows 10 build 19035 is focused on making improvements and fixing stuff rather than throwing a whole load more features at us. If you are on the Fast or the Slow ring you can get the preview build right now via Windows Update.
Here’s what we know about it so far:
In terms of the changes Microsoft is bringing, Microsoft say they have now finished their experiment on how they use Windows Update to deliver the updates. If your device was involved in that experiment, you won’t see the Optional Updates link in Windows Updates anymore. Perhaps more importantly, this fixes a problem that arose when, after printer drivers were successfully installed from Optional Updates, the drivers still show as being available to install.
The other changes that Microsoft report are:
- We fixed an issue that could result in fingerprint (if enabled) sometimes unexpectedly not being offered as a sign-in option after waking your device from sleep.
- We fixed an issue that could result in certain apps not launching the first time you tried after resetting the app via Settings.
And it wouldn’t be right if there weren’t any known issues with the build. First, some insiders say that, when they tried to install recent builds, the setup would roll back and throw an 0xc1900101 error code. Microsoft is asking anyone who gets this to use the Feedback Hub to report it.
There is also still an issue with the BattlEye anti-cheat software and some devices will be on a compatibility hold for the time being.
The other issues that Microsoft report are:
- We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- We’re looking into reports of certain external USB 3.0 drives not responding with Start Code 10 after they’re attached.
- We’ve received reports of the Optimize Drives app incorrectly reporting that optimization has never run on SSD devices.
If you’re on the Fast or Slow ring, go ahead and install the preview build right now and tell us what you think of what’s to come.
