We all know that Microsoft has released new builds for both PC and Mobile today. Now lets discuss about PC Build 14271. Lets see what all are fixed from the previous build and whats new.

What’s fixed for PC

  • We fixed an issue where the window borders on apps would change from accent color to black after every upgrade to a new build.
  • We have updated the music control icons that are shown in taskbar previews in music apps like Groove to look more crisp and clean at higher resolutions.
  • We fixed an issue where the taskbar would sometimes not auto-hide and show unexpectedly on top of full screen windows such as showing above a PowerPoint presentation when in slideshow mode.
  • We fixed an issue where the “Hide notifications while presenting” setting preference is lost after upgrading to a new build.
  • The entire app header in Action Center is now right-clickable instead of just the app name or “x”.
  • We made it easier to dismiss all notifications from a specific app in Action Center by increasing the target area to encompass the entire app header.
  • We fixed an issue where interaction notifications would not show a button to input text in some cases.
  • Fast user switching should work now with Picture Password.
  • We fixed an issue where some desktop (Win32) apps look missing from Start.
  • We fixed an issue where the accent color does not automatically change when the slideshow option is chosen for your desktop background.

Known issues for PC

  • We are tracking an issue reported by Insiders where some PCs will freeze or bluescreen when resuming from hibernation. Disabling hibernation is a workaround in some cases until this is fixed.
  • If you have Kaspersky Anti-Virus, Internet Security, or the Kaspersky Total Security Suite installed on your PC there is a known driver bug that prevents these programs from working as expected in builds from the Development Branch. We are partnering with Kaspersky to fix this issue for a future release, but at this time there are no known workarounds. While this issue is present, we recommend using Windows Defender or another third party anti-virus product of your choice to remain protected.
  • Turning on the “always show all icons in the notification area” setting disrupts the layout of the notification area (“systray”).
  • When browsing in Microsoft Edge, charts displayed using D3.js library will not display correctly – e.g. render as black, positioned incorrectly. Known affected sites are Cortana, Bing.com, and PowerBI.com.
