Microsoft keep moving forward with development of Windows 10 19H1 for Insiders in the Fast ring with a new release today.
Microsoft yesterday released the next version of 19H1 for Insiders in the Fast and Skip Ahead rings. Sure, the company is still figuring out when it will finally rerelease Windows 10 version 1809, but while the company is fixing the file deletion bug, the Insider team keep rolling on. Today’s build follows up 19H1 Build 18262 which makes uninstalling built-in Microsoft apps easier. Here is a look at what you can expect in today’s new preview build.
Windows 10 19H1 Preview Build 18267
Input improvements include the availability of Vietnamese Telex and Number key-based keyboards. “Do you write Vietnamese? We want you to have the best possible typing experience, so we’re happy to announce that with this build you can now use Vietnamese Telex and Number-key based (VNI) keyboards,” write Dona Sarkar and Brandon LeBlanc in their announcement.
There are now more Accessibility improvements including the ability of Narrator to work with Chrome. There are also more symbols and special characters available on the touch keyboard.
There are also improvements to Windows Search indexing which includes a new Enhanced Mode for Search Indexer. Run it once, which takes 15 minutes, and after that, the claim is everything will be found instantly.
In addition to the changes listed above, here is a look at the other changes and improvements to expect in this week’s build:
- We fixed an issue resulting in Settings crashing when invoking actions on certain places, including under Windows Security.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some Insider experiencing green screens with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL in the previous flight.
- We fixed an issue where the Action Center might suddenly appear on the opposite side of the screen before appearing on the correct side.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the Action Center icon sometimes showing a number of unread notifications, however when you opened Action Center it would be blank.
- We fixed an issue resulting in Settings crashes on launch for a small number of users.
- We fixed an issue resulting in recently opened items sometimes showing in jump lists even though “Show recently opened items in jump lists” was disabled in Settings.
- We fixed an issue where the Built-in Phrases Setting page for the Pinyin IME would hang for a time if you clicked any phase in the list.
- We fixed an issue where Uninstall would still be shown as an option when right-clicking apps in Start if the group policy “Prevent users from uninstalling applications from Start” was enabled.
- We fixed an issue where if you had an inbox app with a version number longer than 20 characters it wouldn’t be returned as a result if you searched for it.
- We fixed an issue resulting in switching audio endpoints from the volume flyout in the taskbar not working in the last few flights.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some users having issues launching inbox apps after updating to the last few flights.
- We fixed an issue where if word wrap was enabled when using Notepad with a screen reader some words might unexpectedly be read out as two half words rather than one.
