In an odd move, Microsoft launched the latest version of Windows 10 preview for Mobile and PC – Build 14385. This comes on the heels of last week’s Build 14383.
Dona Sarkar, the head of the Windows Insider program said in her blog post this weekend the following:
We’re getting down to the wire on the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, team. Please install the build and send us your feedback. I can’t tell you how much I love being on the same team as you.
Windows 10 Preview Build 14385 for PC
After you install this latest build, you should find the following improvement for Windows 10 Anniversary Edition on PC:
- You should no longer see a notification pop-up once a day saying that your Windows evaluation copy expires on 7/15/2016. I know this has caused a lot of you some angst so thank you for being patient.
- We have improved battery life for Surface devices.
- We fixed an issue resulting in Spotify sometimes crashing while playing music.
- We fixed an issue resulting in the Google Chrome window being clipped on the top when maximized.
- We fixed an issue with Mobile Hotspot that could result the host device bug-checking (bluescreen) and rebooting if it was sharing on a 5GHz band and the connected device browsed to certain websites.
- We fixed an issue where the pin prompt shown when connecting to certain VPNs would display behind the other open windows.
- We fixed an issue resulting in LastPass and AdBlock extensions for Microsoft Edge not showing the expected context menu items or status information in subsequently opened Edge windows. We also fixed an issue where the current tab in Edge might hang after exiting Web Notes.
- Projecting to a PC auto-discoverability is off by default. To have your PC beacon so it can be discovered and you can project to it through the Connect quick action from a Continuum enabled phone or another PC, go to Settings > System > Projecting to this PC and set “Windows PCs and phones can project to this PC when you say it’s OK” to “Available everywhere” or “Available everywhere on secure networks”. You can also set other settings on this page to your preference.
Of course there are known issues for Windows 10 Mobile and PC as well, and for a full report you can check out Dona’s article here.
