Microsoft today is releasing Windows 10 build 21332 to Insiders in the Dev Channel. This follows build 21327 which included improvements to the News and Interests features and system icons that align to the Microsoft Fluent Design style. But not much going on in this release other than some improvements and fixes to the operating system. Here is a look at what you can expect.
Windows 10 Build 21332
Here is the list of changes and improvements in today’s release:
- Our new option to paste as plain text from clipboard history (WIN + V) is now rolling out to all Insiders in the Dev Channel.
- Theme-aware splash screens have been re-enabled for everyone in the Dev Channel with this build.
- 3D Viewer and Paint 3D will no longer be preinstalled on clean installs of the latest Insider Preview builds. Both apps will still be available in the Store and will stay on your device after an OS update. So, if you upgraded your PC like normal, you shouldn’t see these apps changed in your app list.
- Due to increasingly low usage, Math Input Panel is being removed. However, the input control and math recognition engine that powered the app is remaining as an optional feature titled “Math Recognizer” which can be installed via Settings > Apps > Apps & features and clicking “Optional features”. So, while the app itself will no longer be there, the features it enabled for math equation input in OneNote, Excel, and elsewhere, will continue to work and developers can continue to utilize the input control.
And here is the list of fixes included in today’s build:
- We fixed an issue where Surface Pro X devices would bugcheck when resuming from sleep.
- We fixed an issue where devices were experiencing hangs when Xbox controller were connected while shutting down, restarting, or entering sleep in recent Dev Channel builds.
- We fixed an issue leading to the About page of Settings not being present in the previous flight.
- We fixed an issue where the OS Info link on the Windows Update Settings page did not work.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some Settings search results unexpectedly being missing in recent flights.

- We fixed an issue where it was unexpectedly possible to scroll the quick actions area of the Action Center when the region was collapsed.
- We fixed a bug affecting GPU Compute support in the Windows Subsystem for Linux. See this GitHub issue for reference.
- We fixed an issue where clipboard history might not update to display the latest entries.
- We fixed an issue where launching an app would dismiss the touch keyboard even though you’d used the taskbar button to manually invoke it.
- We fixed an issue resulting in gifs (via the touch keyboard or emoji panel) unexpectedly being inserted as a single image in certain apps.
- We fixed an issue where when using search to insert the red heart emoji from the touch keyboard or emoji panel, in certain apps upon insertion it would unexpectedly appear black, despite the app supporting colored emoji.
- We fixed an issue where when using the new dark mode for the Pinyin IME displayed tips would be unreadable due to having black text.
- We fixed an issue when typing with certain IMEs where Narrator wouldn’t announce when you expanded or collapsed the displayed information in the candidate window.

- We fixed an issue that could result in your PC bugchecking when renaming a file or folder on an SD card.
- We fixed an issue where devices running Trend Micro software may randomly bugcheck.
- An issue has been fixed where devices with Bitdefender installed experienced a black screen and/or explorer.exe crashes. Resolving the issue requires an update to the Bitdefender software.
