Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Insider Build 20175

Microsoft today is releasing Insider build 20175 for the Dev Channel. There are new features in this build, too.

Microsoft today is releasing Windows 10 build 20175 to Insiders in the Dev Channel (formerly Fast ring). This build follows up last week’s build 20170. Today’s new build includes a few new features. Here’s a look at what you can expect.

Windows 10 Insider Build 20175

Today’s new build includes new features like improved pinned sites in Microsoft Edge. Microsoft’s Brandon LeBlanc explains: “Clicking a pinned site on the Taskbar will now show you all of the open tabs for that site across any of your Microsoft Edge windows, just like you’d expect for any app with multiple open windows.”

In addition, there are new icons for Sticky Notes and the Snip & Sketch app via updates from the Microsoft Store.

Here’s the list of fixes in today’s new release:

  • We fixed an issue causing some systems to crash with a HYPERVISOR_ERROR bugcheck.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in tiles sometimes flashing unexpectedly in the Start menu when animating
  • We fixed an issue where the option the set Alt + Tab to “Windows Only” wasn’t working.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in apps unexpectedly appearing black when viewed under Magnifier with a large magnification.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in some stutter when gaming.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Narrator not working with touch when touching a XAML item.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in Search not closing after selecting certain items in the search results.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in flickers when logging in.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in fonts not displaying correctly in some apps in the last two flights.
  • We fixed an issue that could result in Settings crashing if it’d been opened but minimized to the Windows Update page, and then you navigated to another settings page by clicking a URI.
  • We fixed an issue where clicking a link to System would result in an empty and unclosable Control Panel instance.

Remember 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.
