Windows 10 Preview Build 14332 Released to Insiders Today

Microsoft today released Windows 10 Build 14332 to Windows Insiders today for both PCs and mobile. Unlike last week’s preview Build 14328 which had a ton of new features, this one only has a few. It also includes a lot of bug fixes, and, of course, new issues.

The company is on a quick pace releasing these preview builds for the upcoming Anniversary Update that will be available to all current owners of Windows 10 later this summer.

Microsoft is kicking off its “Bug Bash” in this build for Insiders. According to the blog post by Microsoft exec Gabe Aul:

Over the course of the next 4 days, we will be publishing multiple Quests inside Feedback Hub that will highlight different areas of the product each day. The Quests that you will see for the Bug Bash are not traditional Quests that list steps of trying a feature or scenario out. Many of them are open ended intentionally so that you can perform the steps that come naturally to you in order to finish the Quest and give us feedback on it. Many of them also list more than one scenario that can be tried out to finish the Quest. All the Quests for the Bug Bash will lead back to Feedback Hub so that you can upvote existing feedback or give new feedback based on your experience of completing the Quest. Please make sure to search for existing feedback to upvote before entering a new report.

Other new features include updates to the Bash and Command Prompt, Cortana can now search Office 365, and improved battery life for connected standby PC’s.

Here’s a list of what has been fixed for PC in this build:

  • We fixed the issue causing some PCs to bluescreen (bug check) when entering Connected Standby after updating to the latest build from the Development Branch.
  • We fixed the issue where some large downloads may appear to get stuck at 99% completion in Microsoft Edge.
  • We fixed an issue which made it look like you couldn’t drag and drop to reorder your favorites on the Favorites Bar.
  • We fixed the issue causing Groove Music to crash on launch at the splash screen.
  • We fixed an issue where adding a song to Groove Music’s Now Playing list might cause the current song to stop playing and start over.
  • We fixed the issue where PCs are unable to go back to a previous Insider Preview build via “Go back to an earlier build” under Settings > Update & security > Recovery if they have BitLocker/Device Encryption enabled.
  • We’ve made improvements to the share UI for Cortana Reminders. The experience is much more polished now.
  • We improved reliability of the Chinese IME.
  • Going forward (from this build), apps for which you’ve selected “Show windows from this app on all desktops” will be remembered after you update to a new build.
  • We fixed an issue where the taskbar’s overflow tray for notification area (systray) icons was not being padded correctly for certain multi-monitor setups.
  • We fixed an issue where the Game Bar would not appear if the DPI had been changed from 150% to 100%.
  • We fixed an issue where notifications with more content sometimes could not be expanded in the Action Center.
  • We fixed an issue where tiles on the Start menu might flash at the wrong size after exiting tablet mode.
  • We fixed an issue where the battery icon in the notification area might display incorrectly after a DPI change.
  • We fixed an issue where clicking on the “X” button on a window in Task View removed the thumbnail, but the title and X button would still be shown.
  • When an app is displayed in the Start menu with the name “@{<app package name>}”), there will now be an option to uninstall it.
  • We fixed an issue where re-directed folder Libraries would appear as duplicate folder entries in the File Explorer navigation pane.
  • We fixed an issue for multi-monitor users, where launching a desktop (Win32) app from Start would result in the full screen video being played on the other monitor getting minimized.
  • We fixed an issue where the Settings app would crash if you tried to pin a settings page to Start.
  • We fixed an issue where opening Windows Defender from the Settings app would fail.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in blurry and/or overlapped text in Start’s All apps list.
  • We fixed an issue where the touch keyboard might not come up in the password field after you switched users on the Lock screen.
  • We fixed an issue where Windows Spotlight wouldn’t remember if you had already said you liked that image the last time you locked your PC.

And, the inevitable known issues include the following for PC:

  • We’re adding a built-in network speed test under Settings > Network & Internet > Status however it doesn’t work just yet. The UI is there but we still have some backend work to get it turned on and working.
  • Feedback Hub is not localized and the UI will be in English (U.S.) only, even with language packs installed.
  • Feedback Hub takes about 20-30 minutes after updating to this build to download and hydrate itself. If Feedback Hub is not fully hydrated, if you receive a mini-survey notification it will take you nowhere in the app, search in Feedback Hub won’t show results, and if you click to go to Feedback Hub from another app or setting, Feedback will not open.
  • The Desktop App Converter Preview (Project Centennial) will fail to run on the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14332. If you are a developer utilizing the converter tool to convert your desktop app to UWP, we suggest skipping this build until we can fix this issue.
  • All Tencent online games no longer work in current builds from the Development Branch.
  • The updated UAC UI breaks the ALT + Y keyboard shortcut to choose “yes”.
  • You may receive 0x8004C029 errors when attempting to play Groove Music Pass (DRM) content in Groove Music.
  • Playing music in the Groove Music within 2 minutes after logging into your PC will result in 0xc10100ae playback errors. If you wait more than 2 minutes after logging in to play music in Groove Music you will avoid this issue.
  • You may see square boxes in certain apps when using some of the new emoji – we’re still getting things set up, this will be resolved in a future build.
  • We are continuing to make changes to our extension datastore schema in Microsoft Edge. As a result, after updating to this build any extensions installed will be removed. You can reinstall these extensions to get them back.
  • If you are using a non-English keyboard, you can’t accept Bash prompts.
  • We are investigating an issue where if you’re running Insider Preview builds in certain languages, the All apps list on Start appears empty. A workaround for this is to use search to launch apps.
