Microsoft announced today the rollout of Windows 10 Build 16281 for Windows Insiders in the Fast ring – just in time for testing over the long weekend. Like last week, this is the second preview build released to Insiders in a week. The company is closing in on the official public release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on October 17th. All preview builds are in the final stages of the development cycle and there are no new additional features; only minor changes and bug fixes.
Changes in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281
Here’s a look at the general changes, improvements, and fixes that you can expect in this most recent build according to Dona Sarkar’s blog post:
- We fixed an issue resulting in Train Simulator 2017 failing to launch on recent flights.
- We fixed an issue resulting in not being able to tab into an open PDF in Microsoft Edge after interacting with the any of the Microsoft Edge window elements using mouse.
- We fixed an issue where the Windows Defender Security Center app icon was missing in taskbar when the app was open, as well in Start’s all apps list. You will also notice that the icon is now un-plated in the taskbar.
- We’ve made some adjustments to address an issue resulting in sudden and brief CPU spikes where you couldn’t move your mouse. If you’ve encountered this, please try it in this new build and let us know if your experience has improved.
- We fixed an issue where minimized app windows on mixed-DPI monitor setups might end up drawing offscreen after your PC resumed from sleep.
- We fixed an issue where if you changed your display language preference to something other than the machine’s default then any app which did not take an update while also getting the updated language resource package from the Store would end up continuing to display its tile in Start in that default language rather than the new language displayed within the app and other system UI.
We’re just over six weeks away from the final release. Are you looking forward to upgrading to the new version, or not so much? Leave a comment below and let us know your thoughts.
