Windows 10 Insider Build 15061 is the Third PC Preview Build this Week

Microsoft today rolled out Windows 10 Creators Update Preview Build 15061 for Insiders in the Fast ring. This makes for the third Insider release for PC this week as the company puts the finishing touches on the final version which should be released very soon.


On Tuesday, we got Build 15058, yesterday was Build 15060, and today we get Build 15061 just in time for weekend testing. Just like the other two Insider builds released this week, there are no new features, but some important bug fixes under the hood.

Windows 10 Creators Update Build 15061

Here is the list of what has been fixed, improved, and changed according to Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar:

  • We fixed an issue resulting in some unexpected visual distortion when watching certain mp4 videos in Movies and TV on recent flights.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in OOBE crashing when you tapped the birthday date field when creating a new account and email address.
  • We fixed a recent issue resulting in certain VPN connections being unexpecting missing from Network Connections.
  • We fixed an issue where in recent flights, some Direct3D 9 games might periodically fail to launch. To work around this, it was necessary that your default display resolution be the recommended setting for your system. You can now return your display configuration to your preferred settings.

To grab this latest build, make sure you’re in the Fast ring (if you moved to the Slow ring to get built-in app updates) and go to Settings > Update & security > Windows update.

Remember that with all preview builds there are known bugs and other issues. Head to the Microsoft Blog to see the full changelog. The rapid pace at which Microsoft is issuing Insider preview builds is a signal that the finalized version is just around the corner.
