Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Build 21322 for Insiders

Microsoft today is releasing Windows 10 build 21322 to Insiders in the Dev Channel. This release is the follow-up to last week’s build 21318. There isn’t much new in the features departments with today’s release. One interest of note, though, is it is removing the pesky 3D Objects folder from File Explorer. It also contains a list of changes and improvements as well as overall fixes. Here’s a look at what’s new.

Windows 10 Build 21322

These are the changes and improvements to expect with today’s release:

  • The 3D Objects folder will no longer be shown as a special folder in File Explorer after updating to this build. If you need to access this folder, you can do so via typing %userprofile% in File Explorer or through the navigation pane option “Show all folders”.
  • [News and interests] We removed the “Reduce taskbar updates” option from the context menu. We expect it to return in a future update.
  • We have temporarily removed the touch keyboard refinements noted in Build 21301 to fix some issues. However, the updates to the default keyboard layout on 12” or larger screens and the candidate bar remain available to everyone in Dev Channel as noted last week with Build 21318.

And here is the list of Fixes contained in today’s build:

  • We fixed an issue where if you tried to access an Azure Active Directory (AAD) joined device via Remote Desktop (RDP), it would fail after updating to recent Dev Channel builds.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in your PC bugchecking when switching between users.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in deleted files unexpectedly remaining visible on the desktop until the desktop was refreshed.
  • ​[News and interests] We fixed an issue where the taskbar button might show no content after the primary monitor was changed.
  • [News and interests] We fixed an issue where news and interests would continue to refresh content in the background even when the screen was turned off, consuming resources.
  • [News and interests] We fixed multiple issues impacting performance and reliability.
  • We fixed an issue with the new “Paste as plain text” option in clipboard history where clipboard history didn’t close after it was used, inconsistent with the normal paste behavior.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in erroneous torn write errors being logged.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in delayed audio playback on certain devices in the last few builds.
  • We fixed an issue where if you changed the calendar format multiple times under Settings > Date & Time > Region, the enumerated values of the other data formats may not be correct.

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.
