Microsoft Releases Windows 10 20H1 Build 19008

On Tuesday Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 Insider preview build 19008 to Insiders in the Fast ring. There isn’t much new to see here but it does include a list of fixes and system improvements.

Microsoft on Tuesday released Windows 10 20H1 preview build 19002 to Insiders in the Fast ring. This comes on the heels of last week’s build 19002 which was light on new features and but includes a lengthy list of fixes and system improvements. This latest release also doesn’t include much in the way of new features and only includes a handful of fixes and changes. Here’s a look at what you can expect.

Windows 10 20H1 Preview Build 19008

Here is the list of fixes, changes, and improvements included in this latest Insider release:

  • For Insiders that were experiencing their PCs getting stuck on restart and shutdown on Builds 18999-19002: A fix for this was included with the update to Build 19002.1002, but in case you didn’t see it, including a note here too. If you didn’t install Build 19002.1002, you may need to use the workaround in order to upgrade to this build.
  • We fixed an issue where, when optional updates were available, Insiders with the Settings header might see the Windows Update indicator in a warning state, although the main page of Windows Update Settings showed that everything is up to date.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in sometimes not being able to bring Settings back up after minimizing the window.
  • We’ve done some work to improve the launch speed of the taskbar jump lists.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Program Compatibility Assistant popping up for some Insiders
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Windows Hello unexpectedly showing an error message periodically saying “Can’t turn camera on” on recent builds.
  • We cleaned up some UI in the Mouse pointer settings in Ease of Access.
  • We fixed a bug in Narrator where Narrator was not reading link text in the proper language in the Chrome Browser.

Windows 10 20H1 is the code name for an Insider build that will include the feature the updates we expect to see next Spring. Microsoft announced that build 19H2 (essentially just a service pack) that is near completion and is expected for general release in the coming weeks.

Remember that with Insider builds you can expect a lot of bugs and other issues for both users and developers alike. Make sure to read Microsoft’s full blog post for all changes, known issues, and workarounds.
