Microsoft today is releasing Windows 10 preview build 19587 to Insiders in the Fast ring. This is a follow up to last week’s build 19582. Today’s build doesn’t include any new front-facing features, but it does include a number of general improvements and fixes. Including changes for hardware keyboard volume muting and improvements to Narrator. Here’s a look at what you can expect.
Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 19587
Here is a list of general changes and improvements in this latest preview build:
- Based on feedback, when you have muted your volume, the volume will now not unmute when using the hardware keyboard volume keys until you raise the volume (or manually unmute).
- We made a couple of improvements to Narrator and how it works with some of the controls in Windows:
- Narrator now uses a more friendly string to describe the audio output in the Select playback device dropdown menu in the volume flyout.
- Narrator now announces more information in the Add Bluetooth or other devices dialog in the Settings application when first opened.
And here is the full list of fixes in today’s latest preview build:
- We fixed an issue where the new icon next to Scan with Microsoft Defender in File Explorer’s context menu didn’t have a transparent background.
- We fixed an issue that could result in Default Apps page in Settings crashing when you tried to change defaults.
- We fixed an issue that could result in the search box being missing from certain apps.
- We fixed an issue where some files couldn’t be opened in win32 apps from File Explorer when the path length to the file was very long and parts of the path included East Asian characters.
- We fixed an issue where thumbnails weren’t being generated for pictures inside a Work Folder.
- We fixed an issue where adding the Session column to the Users tab in Task Manager would result in not being able to expand the details for a particular user.
It’s important to keep in mind that Insider builds are meant for IT coders, IT admins and Windows enthusiasts who want to test out new features and submit feedback to Microsoft.
These builds are not meant for inexperienced users. And not meant to be installed on your primary production system. Insider builds (and this one in particular) contain many stability issues.
