Microsoft Releases Windows 10 20H1 Preview Build 18941

Microsoft released Windows 10 preview build 18941 to Insiders in the Fast ring today. Unlike last week’s, this one is mainly overall improvements. Here’s what you can expect.

Microsoft today has released Windows 10 20H1 preview build 18941 to Insiders in the Fast ring. This build follows up last week’s build 18936 which included a few new interesting features. Last week’s build includes the ability to create Calendar events directly from the taskbar as well as its upcoming “passwordless” sign-in experience.

But this week’s build is much lighter on new features other than improvements to the Korean Input Method Editor (IME). It does, however, contain a small number of changes and overall improvements to the system. Here is a look at what you can expect.

In addition to Korean IME updates, here is the list of the changes and other improvements you can expect in today’s new build:

  • We fixed an issue resulting in some users experiencing a large amount of lag when using the previous flight.
  • We fixed an issue where explorer.exe would crash if you started a File Explorer search while in a OneDrive folder.
  • We fixed an issue where if you searched for advanced Windows Update options, the search result would open to the main Windows Update Settings page, rather than the advanced one.
  • We fixed an issue where Settings would crash if you clicked on the microphone section under Privacy Settings while audio recording was in progress by a Win32 application.

As always, remember that 20H1 is an Insider build that will be the feature update we expect to see in the Spring of 2020. Microsoft has announced that 19H2 will basically be a service pack and that is coming this September. So, with Insider builds you can expect a lot of bugs and other issues for both users and developers. Make sure to read Microsoft’s full blog post for all changes, known issues, and workarounds.
