Microsoft today announced the release of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17127 to Insiders in the Fast ring. This is the first new preview release this week since last Friday’s Build 17123. While there are no major new features to report, there are some new improvements to Cortana in this build.
Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17127
Cortana now includes a new profile page that you can add and edit your favorite places. “The places you add are used to give you traffic updates for your daily commute, and let you easily set reminders when you arrive or leave your places,” notes Dona Sarkar in today’s announcement. Cortana’s Notebook has received an updated design and support for more international languages. It also will learn to use a default Skill lie Weather, Sports, or News and provide a set of tips for easier management of the digital assistant. These changes are being rolled out to Insiders participating in Redstone 4 and Redstone 5 (Skip Ahead).
Here is a look at the other changes, improvements, and fixes to expect in this latest build:
- We fixed an issue where if you had your phone linked to your PC prior to upgrading, you’ll find it has become unlinked after upgrading.
- We fixed an issue that could result in Microsoft Edge crashing when turning off certain extensions.
- We fixed an issue where Narrator would crash when using scan mode to read dialogs in Microsoft Edge.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the page up and page down keys not working when using Microsoft Edge in Reading View.
- We fixed an issue resulting in focus being lost after using WIN+A to close the Action Center.
- We fixed an issue where if you switched your formatting to Japanese without having the Japanese language in your language list, newly installed apps wouldn’t appear in Start.
