Microsoft rolls out a new Insider build in the Dev channel on every Wednesday. This time it has released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20190 to the Dev Channel. The build has a couple of exciting changes, such as new post-update experience and improved graphics settings.
The post-update experience will help consumers see what has been changed or added after installing a new feature update and will also provide the tips for newly installed features. To see this feature, “Show me the Windows welcome experience,” checkbox should be checked in Settings>System>Notifications & actions.
Additionally, the Redmond giant has made some essential changes to the Graphics Settings based on user feedback. Below are the changes made:
- Updated the Graphics Settings to allow users to specify a default high-performance GPU.
- Updated the Graphics Settings to allow users to pick a specific GPU on a per-application basis.
These will allow the users to choose specific GPU for high performance if multiple GPUs installed. In layman’s terms, now, users will be able to specify default high-performance GPU (shown in Image a.) and specific GPU for a particular application (shown in Image b).
The build also includes improvement and fixes, which are as follows:
Changes and Improvements
- Based on feedback, we’re updating the new Japanese IME to support switching between Hiragana and Katakana by using CTRL + CAPSLOCK and ALT + CAPSLOCK (respectively), as was supported with the previous version.
- We fixed a Windows Subsystem for Linux 1 related error that would output: ‘The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request’. Please see this Github issue for details.
- We fixed an issue that could result in explorer.exe being unresponsive on touch-capable devices after resuming from hibernation.
- We fixed an issue with the new search box in the default apps settings pages, where search results would appear to draw on top of one another when deleting characters from the search box.
- We fixed an issue where if you switched to an English keyboard using WIN + Space and then switched back to the Chinese Pinyin IME, typed punctuations would Chinese even if “Use English punctuations when in Chinese input mode” was enabled.
- We fixed an issue where when Narrator was enabled it could result in the on-screen PIN pad unexpectedly appearing when focus is set to the login screen.
- We fixed an issue resulting in Features on Demand (FOD) failing to enable with error 0x8000FFFF in recent builds. This is also believed to be the root cause for some Insiders finding that the sfc /scannow command would repeatedly fail citing a pending reboot.
- We fixed and issue that could result in the calling window (for example, Microsoft Edge) hanging if an authentication prompt was raised and then not interacted with and timing out.
Apart from these, the build has a list of known issues to be aware of, that you can check in the original blog-post of the build at Windows Blog. Dev channel Insiders can grab this build via Windows Update.
