Windows 10 19H1

Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 Build 18282 for Fast and Skip Ahead Ring Insiders with new features. Build 18282 is from the development branch and the update with several other changes will be shipped to the public in the Spring of 2019.

Build 18282 brings Light Theme, printing improvements, a new snipping experience and several other new features. The 19H1 update is still in the early stages of development and more changes are expected to launch before the general public release in April 2019.

What’s fixed and improved in Windows 10 Build 18282

  • An issue causing File Explorer to freeze in previous flights has now been fixed.
  • An issue resulting in x86 apps having blurry text rendering in earlier flight has now been fixed.
  • Microsoft has added a shadow to the Action Center to go with the shadow along the borders of taskbar flyouts.
  • Some users reported that they were not able to set Win32 program defaults for certain apps via Settings>Apps>Default Apps in previous flights. This issue has now been fixed in the latest build.
  • An issue resulting in context menu not working when right clicking an open app in Task View has been fixed.
  • Users reported issue with the touch keyboard not working correctly when typing Chinese with Bopomofo IME has now been fixed.
  • Improvements have been made to the Narrator and Chrome browser experience.
  • An issue resulting in blue screens if PC set up to dual boot has now been fixed.
  • Network button on sign in screen not working properly in previous flights has now been fixed.

There are still some known issues which need to be taken care before updating to the latest build. Here’s the list of known issues:

  • Insiders will find issues with PDFs not displaying correctly when opened in Microsoft Edge.
  • Settings page will crash when trying to change the account password or PIN. As a workaround use the CTRL + ALT + DEL method.
  • Sign-in Settings will no longer be seen or missing for enabling/disabling Dynamic Lock.
  • Clicking on “View storage usage on other drives” will result in Settings crashing. This should be fixed in the upcoming build.
  • Insiders will be seeing a black screen for Remote Desktop.

It’s important to note that you should not install preview builds on your primary as there could be some annoying bugs. If you would like to try out these changes, you might want to run the update in a Virtual Machine or on your second device.
