Windows 10 Preview Build 20262

Here is the list of fixes contained in this latest release to the Dev Channel:

  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain apps launching unexpectedly transparent in recent builds, with no content visible.
  • We fixed an issue where old SleepStudy etls were unexpectedly not being cleaned up.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in no response the first time a pen was clicked after being paired due to an underlying crash.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in touchpad scrolling no longer working on the tab in focus after closing a browser tab using CTRL+W while scrolling on a touchpad.
  • We fixed an issue where the some of the notifications related to block at first sight weren’t being localized.
  • We fixed an issue where when using Narrator in scan mode, it wasn’t possible to activate the “Sign in with pin or smart card” buttons in the authentication dialog using space or the enter key.
  • We fixed a recent issue where when both Wi-Fi and cellular were connected, if Wi-Fi disconnected the network flyout would say cellular was still connected, but apps wouldn’t actually be able to use the internet.
  • We fixed a high hitting DWM crash impacting some Insiders in the last few flights.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in Settings crashing when navigating to Storage Sense.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in app registration issues for some of the in-box apps with the previous flight after upgrading.

Keep in mind that Insider builds are meant for coders, IT admins, and Windows 10 enthusiasts who want to test new features and submit feedback to Microsoft.

These builds are not meant for inexperienced users. They are also not meant to run on your primary production machine. Insider builds contain many known stability issues that can cause your system to become unstable or even crash.
