Earlier after the release of the Windows 10 1909 version, Microsoft was releasing 20H1 version builds on both Slow and Fast rings separately. However, now, the company has pushed a fresh 20H1 build 19033 to both the rings at the same time. And Microsoft also mentioned that the 20H1 will be known as version 2004 when it will release officially.
Previously Microsoft used “03” for the spring feature update, but now it has opted to use 2004 and not 2003 to avoid confusion with Windows Server 2003. The company will start releasing new builds from its development branch to the Fast ring soon. In short, Fast ring will be getting the test builds of the next feature update. As this will be pre-release build, it may contain bugs and unstable, so Insiders from Fast ring can switch to Slow ring to remain on 20H1.
What’s provided in Build 19033
General changes, improvements, and fixes for PC
- The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build.
- Eagle-eyed Windows Insiders will notice that that as of this build, 20H1 officially shows it is version 2004. We have chosen to use 2004 as the version to eliminate confusion with any past product names (such as Windows Server 2003).
- We fixed an issue that could result in Settings crashing for some users if you navigated to About when in Safe Mode.
- We fixed an issue resulting in some paired Bluetooth audio devices unexpectedly displaying with a cellphone icon in Bluetooth Settings.
- We fixed an issue where preferred Focus Assist automatic rules settings weren’t persisting upgrade.
- We fixed an issue where pressing the WIN + P keyboard shortcut twice in a row could result in ShellExperienceHost crashing.
- We fixed an issue that could result in the Start menu crashing on launch if a Windows update was pending restart.
- We fixed an issue where if you were using night light and weren’t already signed into a Microsoft Account, and subsequently attached your MSA, it would result in night light no longer working.
- We fixed an issue where if you quickly toggled Magnifier on and back off in Settings it would result in Magnifier.exe crashing.
- At this point, we’re removing the known issue that Settings still isn’t available outside of launching via the URI (ms-settings:) – so far we have not seen any reports from Insiders in the Slow ring that bypassed the impacted build range. If you are in the Fast ring, were on the impacted build range, and are one of the few still experiencing this issue, you will need to reset your PC. We appreciate your patience.
- We fixed an issue where you wouldn’t be able to type Chinese punctuation with the Pinyin IME after moving focus to and from a password field.
- Some users may have experienced error 80092004 when attempting to install build 19025.1052. This was isolated to that specific Cumulative Update and should not prevent installing build 19033.
- We have fixed an issue resulting in Start Code 38 with certain external USB 3.0 drives.
- BattlEye and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. To safeguard Insiders who might have these versions installed on their PC, we have applied a compatibility hold on these devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview.
- We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- Some Insiders are reporting that after successfully installing printer drivers from the Optional Updates section, the same driver is still showing as available for install. We’re looking into the issue.
- We’re looking into reports of certain external USB 3.0 drives not responding with Start Code 10 after they’re attached.
