Microsoft today released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17110 to Insiders in the Fast ring. While the company is in the stabilization phase of development, unlike last week’s build, this one does include a few new features. Namely, features focused on enterprise users. There is also a good amount of overall bug fixes and stabilization updates for the new release which is expected to roll out to everyone this Spring.
Windows 10 Preview Build 17110
The new Enterprise feature allows IT admins to run custom actions as part of a two-phase setup process. In today’s post, Dona Sarkar writes: “In RS4, we are adding a new feature that will enable your enterprise to run your own custom actions/scripts synchronously with setup.” The functionality occurs by using preinstall.cmd or precommit.cmd and is explained as:
Pre-install: This would be just before all the system and device compatibility scans run.
Pre-commit: This would be just before the system reboots into the offline phase.
The new commands, explained in full here, will help IT admins who are deploying Windows 10 across a large environment form control over the upgrade process.
Here is a look at the other changes, improvements, and fixes in this latest build:
- We fixed an issue where buttons on Game bar were not centered correctly.
- We fixed an issue where a small number of PCs might have experienced one CPU under persistent high load or even a bugcheck (GSOD with error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION).
- We fixed an issue where tearing a PDF tab in Microsoft Edge would result in a bugcheck (GSOD).
- We’ve updated Start so that it now follows the new Ease of Access setting to enable or disable hiding scrollbars.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some app icons appearing distorted in Task View.
- We fixed an issue where making a pinch gesture over the open apps in Task View might result in no longer being able to scroll down to Timeline.
- We fixed an issue where pressing and holding on a card in Timeline would open the corresponding app, rather than bringing up a context menu.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the title bar overlapping content when you opened your lists in Cortana’s notebook.
- We’ve updated the new notification to fix blurry apps so that it now will persist in the Action Center to be accessed later once the toast has timed out and dismissed.
- We fixed an issue where it wasn’t possible to open a new inPrivate window of Microsoft Edge from the taskbar jumplist while in Tablet Mode.
- We fixed an issue where dragging a Microsoft Edge tab out of the window and releasing hold of it somewhere over the desktop might periodically result in a stuck invisible window.
- We fixed an issue resulting in DirectAccess not working in recent builds, where the connection would be stuck with status “Connecting”.
- We fixed an issue where the touch keyboard number pad would show the period as a decimal separator for countries that use the comma as a decimal separator.
- We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to turn on and off third-party IMEs using the touch keyboard.
- We fixed an issue resulting in numbers not being inserted when flicking up on the top row of letters in the wide touch keyboard layout.
