Microsoft today released Windows 10 20H1 preview build 18898 to Insiders in the Fast ring. Unlike last week’s build 18908 which introduced new features for the Your Phone app, today’s release is mainly system fixes and improvements. Here is a look at what you can expect with this week’s latest Insider build.

Here is the list of changes, improvements, and fixes to expect in today’s latest Insider build:

  • 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.

Remember that these are early Insider preview builds, and you can expect several bugs and other issues for users and developers.
